"I've made this several times and I'm always surprised how delicious it is, when the ingredient list seems rather bland. I served this to some in-laws recently, who were all skeptical about a turkey casserole with hard-boiled eggs in it, but they all loved it and went for more! Easy to make; definitely a keeper!"

"Re: Hearty Turkey Casserole

This is a keeper! Used penne pasta instead of macaroni, an extra egg, and topped with grated parmesan cheese. Will definitely make this again!"

"This is great except for process cheese food. (Our dog won't even eat it!) But regular or reduced fat shredded cheddar is great in it!
