Turkey Mushroom Casserole Recipe

Turkey Mushroom Casserole Recipe

My mother developed this turkey casserole recipe years ago. The flavor, cheese and splash of sherry make it elegant enough to serve at a dinner party. —Peggy Kroupa, Leawood, Kansas

"This was great! I didn't have canned soup, so I made a white sauce after saut?ing the mushrooms. My whole family loved it! Thanks for sharing!"

"The serves 8 must be for half the recipe. It was really good but guess I will need to freeze the rest or something. I used chicken instead of turkey and used one can of cream of chicken instead since that's what was in the cupboard. Also used more mushrooms. The seasoning was just right and didn't give the canned soup taste."

"This was very tasty. My boyfriend said I could make it once a week. I only made half a recipe since I didn't know if I would like it. I wish I would have made the whole recipe. I used whole grain pasta and all chicken broth (no sherry). I also made homemade mushroom soup rather than canned. I love cheese; however, the parmesan cheese on top seemed to be too much and didn't cook in. I did add some whole wheat bread crumbs on top also."

"This is the best casserole. I put it in a crock pot instead of baking and took it to a gathering. Several people wanted the recipe. I added a teaspoon of celery seed and a can of cream of celery soup and an additional cup of broth. It really does need to baking/crock pot time for the flavors to blend. I'll be making this again."

"Made this last nite for my very picky family, and they loved it! Used leftover turkey, leftover gravy (instead of broth), and some leftover noodles. Have to remember this one for Thanksgiving and x-mas leftovers! So glad I fixed enough to freeze half. (It fed 2 adults and 2 teens.)"

"My husband and I loved this casserole, and having another in the freezer is a real bonus. Since my dear love does not like mushrooms, I added in peas and for myself, I sauteed mushrooms on the side and topped my portion with them."
