Turkey Casserole

Turkey Casserole created by Truffle Lady-46

This is my favorite turkey casserole. Chicken can be substituted. Great for left over Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey. I found this recipe many years ago in a newspaper. My sons especially liked the cheese topping so I used to double the topping ingredients. Whether I serve it at home or bring out, I always get compliments and often asked for the recipe.

    This is a great recipe. I took Paul A.'s advice and used Ritz crackers just for a change. French fried onions would be really good as well. Make it to your liking. I added peas to make it the quintessential Chicken, Rice and Peas casserole from back in the day.

    My family loved, loved this! My husband didn't even know there was rice in it. :) I only had a small portion but really liked it. They all said how creamy and tasty it was. Enjoyed it so much that I made two. I didn't change a thing but did omit the pimentos only because I didn't have any or any roasted red peppers which would have been awesome as a substitute I think. Oh I did make one change - for the milk - I don't have whole milk in the house but have skim and cereal cream so I mixed them and it was great. The second time I used can milk and some cream as I was out of milk all together and it was even more luxurious.

    Would add broccoli next time. Easy to make and I had everything on hand. I replaced the pimento with black olives. The hot sauce idea was good. Yum.

    I will use 1 cup of rice next go around. Very good flavor.

    If you don't use pimento add extra salt. Cut the rice in half. I wasn't a huge fan. It was kind of boring and lacking of flavor. Not sure why everyone else thinks it's the best thing ever.
