Crescent Turkey Casserole

How do you make a dinner of turkey and vegetables really appealing to kids? You turn it into a pie, of course! My version tastes classic, but won’t take much time at all. —Daniela Essman, Perham, Minnesota
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2 cups frozen mixed vegetables (about 10 ounces), thawed
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey breast
  • 1 tube (4 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls


  • Preheat oven to 375°. In a saucepan, mix first 4 ingredients until smooth; gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Add vegetables and turkey; cook and stir until heated through. Transfer to a greased 8-in. square baking pan.
  • Unroll crescent dough and separate into 8 triangles; arrange over turkey mixture. Bake until casserole is heated through and topping is golden brown, 15-20 minutes.

    The taste was wonderful; however, the crescent rolls did not get done all the way through even though they were brown on top and the filling was not really hot. Not sure what i did wrong!

    Very simple recipe with ingredients you have on hand. After reading reviews I did double the sauce ingredients with exception of mayonnaise ( used 1/2-3/4 cup). Also baked it in an 11 x 7 pan. Delicious comfort food. Thank You Daniela!

    Great way to use up leftover turkey. I did make some additions: I added mushrooms, onions , garlic , oregano and celery. Family was glad I did. Next time I make this, I plan on cutting back on the mayonnaise as we thought it was too prominent. I will add just a tad of sour cream to tone down the mayonnaise flavor.

    I found the sauce was too thick . I added an additional 1/2 cup of milk to thin it to our taste. I use Chicken Base in place of bouillon which adds more flavor & decreases the sodium. Because I thought the recipe sounded a bit bland, I also added a pinch of dried Rosemary, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, & 1/2 tsp dried onion flakes. In place of turkey, I used left over rotisserie chicken. My husband really liked this dish and it will be a repeater at our house.

    This is a very good and simple dinner. We used chicken instead of turkey. It was very rich but even still, four servings is ambitious unless some are children. We doubled the recipe and I'm glad we did.
