Turkey and Rice Casserole

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

This is a tasty, simple and convenient way to use leftover turkey and/or leftover rice, and a great casserole to take to a potluck. Note: Edited on 1/1/08 to reduce milk in ingredient list from 1 3/4 to 1 1/4 cups. I actually just fill a soup can with milk, but the ingredient list requires a measurement, and I took a guess.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups cooked turkey, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans green beans, drained
  • 1 12 cups frozen corn
  • 2 (10 1/2 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (2 7/8 ounce) cangolden fried onions
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • 1 14 cups milk


  1. Combine 1st 4 ingredients and 1/2 can of fried onons.
  2. Combine mushroom soup with soy sauce, cajun seasoning and milk. (I use a soup can full of milk).
  3. Stir til combined.
  4. Mix into remaining ingredients in casserole dish.
  5. Top with remaining onions and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

I suppose ingredients are everything but this wasn't very tasty, somewhat bland. We used turkey that had been deep fried with creole butter and home canned veggies and had to go crazy with the cajun seasoning to get any flavor. Not for us.

I liked this a lot & my husband did too. Really enjoyed it. Would use low sodium soy sauce and then the Cajun seasoning, as the seasoning has salt as the first ingredient, but this does not taste salty as a result, very very good in fact. A really good way to use leftover turkey in an interesting way and would make good lunches, too.

Although this tasted good (VERY good), it was a bit soupy for our liking, we ended up putting it over biscuits and that was perfect. If I make this in the future I will skip the rice and pour over mashed potatoes or biscuits to absorb some of the soupiness. I would also skip the soy sauce and up the cajun seasoning. Thanks for a fun recipe and a good way to use up my letovers! Made enough for dinner one night (for two)and lunch for two days for one. Only thing I did different was use fresh green beans since I didn't have any leftovers and we hate canned beans. I followed the advice of another reviewer and only used one can of milk, but I did a full recipe.
