This is a fantastic way to use leftover turkey. I had about a cup leftover shredded in turkey gravy that I threw in as well. A nice blend of dark and light meats. I decided to saute the celery and onion in a little butter until just softened before adding and I had about 2 tablespoons of diced pimento to use, so that when in as well. I added a little Paula Deens house seasoning, garlic powder and poultry seasoning. I was a little short of 2 cups velveeta so about 3/4 c. of sharp shredded cheddar went in as well. I served these over buttered toasted buns and they were fantastic!!! I have MORE than enough to freeze for quick weeknight dinners or weekend lunches. I am going to buy BIG turkeys from now on, just so I can have leftovers to make this!
I used leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. I followed the recipe exactly as written. This got mixed reviews at my house. I really liked it but everyone else thought it was OK, they thought that it needed some seasoning. They also thought it needed to be thinned out a bit with maybe some milk. This reminded me of tuna casserole without the noodles. We tried it on buns and just on a plate and I liked it plain. I served it with a side of peas and it tasted good mixed into the turkey mixture also. Made as a pressie for Twelve days of Christmas recipe swap
Very good use for leftover turkey. tasty, creamy and my son loved it! (he's not usually a big turkey guy). I will definitely make it again, adding some veggies next time, maybe mushrooms or peas. seems it would be a good substitute for the old standby of creamed turkey.
