A special cousin shared the recipe for this comforting casserole. The almonds and water chestnuts give it a fun crunch. My husband, Lee, and I live on a farm and have two married children and two granddaughters.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 29, 2013

"We thought this was pretty tasteless. If you have leftover gravy and stuffing I suggest you use that in this dish. I liked all the crunch, though."

MY REVIEW

"I added some garlic, too. This casserole has a nice crunch to it and tastes great!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 20, 2013

"Instead of just celery, you can add carrots, or a bag of frozen mixed veggies (thawed). Loved the crunch from the water chestnuts & almonds."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2013

"Great way to use leftover turkey, really transformed it into something special that the whole family enjoyed. I enjoyed that this had such great crunch - the nuts, water chestnuts, and celery provide a nice textural contrast to the turkey and rice. I followed the recipe as written except for using multi-grain crackers in the topping. Will definitely make again. My only suggestion would be that this is easily 10-12 servings, not 8."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2011

"Very tasty. My kids even went back for seconds. Leftovers tasted just as good the next day for lunch too. The only thing I would probably change next time is to leave out the water chestnuts since the almonds gave it plenty of delicious crunch. Definitely will make again."
