Overnight Turkey Casserole

Folks who love turkey will appreciate the flavor of this golden casserole. I love that I can make it day ahead and just pop it from the refrigerator to the oven. Add a baked potato and a salad and you're all set! —Monica Waletzko, Reedsburg, Wisconsin

    Sounds delicious but the recipe doesn't say when to add the turkey at all. For a beginning cook, this could be confusing.. you might want to correct the instructions.
