A subtle hint of curry and a snappy crunch from apple and celery make this a fun variation on the classic creamed turkey. "This is so popular at our house, I've occasionally cook a turkey just to have leftovers to make it," shares Maureen Dufraimont of Guelph, Ontario. "Spooned over biscuits, it's a nice light lunch, supper or potluck dish."
