Creamed Turkey over Rice Recipe

THIS IS one of our favorite ways to have leftover turkey. When I buy a turkey for my family of five, I choose the largest one I can find so we are sure to have plenty of leftovers. This recipe is simple to prepare and absolutely delicious. -Kathi Parker, Hendersonville, North Carolina

"I inadvertently left the milk out and it was still great! I also used mashed potatoes as an option to the rice."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 17, 2011

"I make this a often. I do leave out the pimientos and add a cup of frozen peas then serve it over biscuits. I use cooked, diced chicken breasts when I don't have any leftover turkey. My husband loves this. Make sure you buy good Swiss cheese. It will make a huge difference in the taste."
