Recipe by Miss Erin C.

This is great if you have leftover turkey. I've also used chicken and had good results.

I can't rate this recipe, because I just used it rougly as a guide, but I agree with the previous reviewer that there was certainly not enough sauce for two layers. If you're making this I'd strongly suggest that you double the quantities for the sauce (although don't double the nutmeg - 1/2 a teaspoon would be way too much).
