Reviews for Holiday Corn 'n' Turkey Casserole
"This is a great alternative to the heavy turkey casseroles (made with pasta, rice, potatoes, or bread.) While the combination of corn & broccoli sounds strange, the while thing really comes together well with flavor, texture and presentation. Slivered almonds with their toasty crunch are truly the finishing touch."
