Recipe by Sackville
A South Carolina chef, Ashbell McElveen, came up with this tasty treat. It really puts a new spin on an old dish.

Delicious middle-of-the-week wholesome casserole dish that we will have again. I only used 1 lb of ground turkey but added a pkg of frozen vegetables to the casserole and it was very filling. We had Barb Gertz's Old Fashioned Oatmeal Bread recipe#55974 with brownies for desert to round out the meal.
