Reviews for Broccoli Turkey Casserole
"This recipe is a good base. It is easily modified and still tasty. I used thighs instead of turkey, didn't have any cream of chicken, so I used two cream of mushroom, added more onion, used Parmesan instead of mozzarella.....you get the idea. The only caution I have is the undiluted soup: I definitely felt the need to add chicken stock/broth to the mix. Save yourself some time and dishes by getting a pan that can go from stovetop to oven. This recipe served 4-5. I would double it for 8 servings if it's your main dish."
"I used leftover turkey to make this casserole. This was easy to make and delicous! My husband loved it as well. I will definitely make this again."
"Very good simple recipe. I used left over roast chicken and made half the recipe using only one can of cream of chicken. My 1 and 2 year olds liked it too."
"We loved it. Used cheddar cheese, more tangy. I put garlic in anything that calls for onions and celery sautéed in butter! It was easy and very good for a winters night."
