I made this up when I did not know what to do with the turkey sent home with us from Thanksgiving dinner at an aunt's house. My husband is not a big casserole fan but he loved this and told me to "write it down so we can have it again!" So I thought I would share it with you. I especially like the addition of the chopped raosted almonds.
