This was really good. I used leftover turkey from Christmas dinner cut into bitesized pieces. I used 3 celery stalks, fresh squeezed lemon juice, fresh rosemary as I had some on hand from making stuffing for xmas, a small can of mushroom stems and pieces with juice and about 1/2 c of Rescued Turkey stock to the mix (#24576){if you haven't made this I HIGHLY recco it!!!) for a bit more flavor. I also added some broad egg noodles that I cooked before hand, rinsing w/ cold water and a few dashes of white cooking wine to give it a bit more punch. I used the exact amount of almonds, but would probably add more next time, just our personal preference. I gave this 4 stars because I thought it would be a bit more creamy and next time I make it, like Sharon123, I will probably add a can of celery, cr. chicken or cr. mushroom soup to give it more creaminess. I served it with a simple tossed salad with Killer Blue Cheese Dressing ( #49721) and we shared a bottle of wine. Thanks for a great recipe to get rid of those turkey leftovers!

I reduced the amount of celery as we're not so keen, but kept everything else as the recipe stated; really lovely and easy to make. Rosemary is definitely underused in my house, but not I don't know why as it was wonderful with the turkey!

Nice weekday meal. Throws together quickly. Added capers and lemon juice and served over rice for the family and over raw spinach for me (to keep it low carb). Got thumbs up all around. Will make again.

A yummy use for leftover turkey! The long bake time allows the rosemary flavor to sort of "infuse" the whole casserole. I also loved the cheesiness! Thanx for posting. I'll use this again whenver I have leftover turkey or even chicken.

I didn't have almonds, but I almost think I would have enjoyed it better as a cold turkey salad more than the cooked version. This was still very, very yummy. The more cheese, the better!

I didn't have celery and I can't use nuts because of toddlers. I substituted carrots and used a shredded italian cheese blend. I also added a bit of jalapeno ranch dressing, maybe 1/2 a cup. I served it over chow mein noodles and we really enjoyed it. The flavors worked very well together. Thanks for a great turkey leftover recipe. I'm going to add artichokes the next time a make it.

I was sceptical about the list of ingredients, but went ahead because I had everything on hand. This was very good. The celery stayed crunchy. I added extra almonds and served this with egg noodles. An easy, tasty way to serve leftover turkey.

This is a wonderful recipe. I used some smoked turkey that was in my freezer, and cut the clery to 2 stalks just because I have to sneak celery in anything or DH will start whining. It was a very flavorable and easy dish to prepare. I will definately be using your recipe again. Thanks for sharing it with Recipezaar.

We all loved this! But I must admit I did make an addition. I added about a 1/2 a can of cream of celery soup. I feel bad that I didn't make it exactly like the directions said. I don't know what came over me! But it did turn out soooooooo good!!! Thanks!;]
