Day-after Scalloped Turkey

"This casserole is a great use of leftover Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey! Make it and put it into a casserole dish and seal well, then put it in the freezer for a couple of weeks down the line when you're craving the taste of the holidays again. :) It also travels well to potlucks, especially if you use one of those disposable foil casserole dishes! You can even make the bread cubes from leftover rolls, toasted in your oven."

  • Gradually whisk in the broth and milk and simmer for 4 minutes while continuing to whisk, then taste and add more salt and pepper, if you like; set the sauce aside.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the bread cubes, onion, garlic, celery, mushrooms, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, sage, and remaining 1/4 cup melted butter; toss well to coat.
  • Add the chopped turkey meat and sauce and mix well.
  • Pan spray a 2-quart casserole dish and pour dressing-chicken-sauce mixture into the dish, top with the grated Parmesan, cover, and bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, then uncover and bake 10 to 15 more minutes until Parmesan is golden.

    This was easy to make and my whole family loved it. I made mashed potatoes on the side and increased the recipe for 7-10 as we have a large family. This is a keeper!

    I swapped diced red pepper for mushrooms, and it was a great dish. Thanks for sharing!

    Great casserole to use with leftover turkey. My boys absolutely loved this casserole. I actually used some corn bread stuffing mix for the toasted bread cubes and fresh mushrooms. Great taste. Quick and easy. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I love comfort food on cold, grey, drizzly days. This certainly fits the bill. I played around with the quantities to suit myself and I very much enjoyed the result. Thanks, Julesong. Great recipe.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>It's simply this: I love to cook! :) <br /><br />I've been hanging out on the internet since the early days and have collected loads of recipes. I've tried to keep the best of them (and often the more unusual) and look forward to sharing them with you, here. <br /><br />I am proud to say that I have several family members who are also on RecipeZaar! <br /><br />My husband, here as <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/member/39857>Steingrim</a>, is an excellent cook. He rarely uses recipes, though, so often after he's made dinner I sit down at the computer and talk him through how he made the dishes so that I can get it down on paper. Some of these recipes are in his account, some of them in mine - he rarely uses his account, though, so we'll probably usually post them to mine in the future. <br /><br />My sister <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/member/65957>Cathy is here as cxstitcher</a> and <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/member/62727>my mom is Juliesmom</a> - say hi to them, eh? <br /><br />Our <a href=http://www.recipezaar.com/member/379862>friend Darrell is here as Uncle Dobo</a>, too! I've been typing in his recipes for him and entering them on R'Zaar. We're hoping that his sisters will soon show up with their own accounts, as well. :) <br /><br />I collect cookbooks (to slow myself down I've limited myself to purchasing them at thrift stores, although I occasionally buy an especially good one at full price), and - yes, I admit it - I love FoodTV. My favorite chefs on the Food Network are Alton Brown, Rachel Ray, Mario Batali, and Giada De Laurentiis. I'm not fond over fakey, over-enthusiastic performance chefs... Emeril drives me up the wall. I appreciate honesty. Of non-celebrity chefs, I've gotta say that that the greatest influences on my cooking have been my mother, Julia Child, and my cooking instructor Chef Gabriel Claycamp at Seattle's Culinary Communion. <br /><br />In the last couple of years I've been typing up all the recipes my grandparents and my mother collected over the years, and am posting them here. Some of them are quite nostalgic and are higher in fat and processed ingredients than recipes I normally collect, but it's really neat to see the different kinds of foods they were interested in... to see them either typewritten oh-so-carefully by my grandfather, in my grandmother's spidery handwriting, or - in some cases - written by my mother years ago in fountain pen ink. It's like time travel. <br /><br />Cooking peeve: food/cooking snobbery. <br /><br />Regarding my black and white icon (which may or may not be the one I'm currently using): it the sea-dragon tattoo that is on the inside of my right ankle. It's also my personal logo.</p>
