I had this recipe at the after funeral buffet for my mother. It is tasty, can be made ahead of time, and good for any and all types of gatherings.The best thing about this is you make it, let it sit all night and then an hour in the oven next day and VOILA--it's ready.

I thought the mayo would cut down on the quality of this dish, but that didn't happen! I used cream of chicken soup instead of the mushroom, & also used broken chips made from yams! Thanks for a very tasty turkey dish! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
