Filled with family-friendly flavors, a pleasant peppery kick and a creamy from-scratch sauce, this hearty dish is just the kind of stick-to-your-ribs comfort food you’re looking for. —Emma Hathway Price, Tampa, Florida
"I created this dish for a church supper one night when I didn't have a lot on hand in my fridge or pantry," writes Cindy Evans from Sedalia, Missouri. "I was a hit! Now, I fix it often for my large family. You could also used cooked chicken in place of the turkey."
Becca Brasfield from Burns, Tennessee lightened up a family recipe to come up with this turkey and rice bake. "Accompanied by fresh tomato slices and hot corn bread, this quick casserole is one of my gang's favorites," she notes.
Wild rice, turkey and vegetables are combined in a savory sauce and topped with golden crumbs in this hearty dish from Margaret Hill of Roanoke, Virginia. "Cooked wild turkey can be a little dry, but not when it's prepared this way," she assures. "I never have leftovers."
The recipe for this creamy and comforting casserole came from my aunt as a way to use leftover turkey. I love it so much, however, that I don't wait for leftovers to make it. The green chilies provide the memorable flavor.

This creamy casserole is always one of the first to go in a buffet line. When I want to indicate serving size, I use sliced cheese squares on the top rather than shredded cheese.—Ferne Carter Chapman, Tacoma, Washington
After tasting this savory recipe, you'll find yourself turning to this recipe time and again. Prepared crescent roll dough makes the lattice crust a snap. Enjoy it with a side dish of cranberry relish and mint brownies for dessert or whip up an apple Waldorf salad and round out the menu with raspberry sherbet.— Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
