Turkey Rice Casserole
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 15 min.
I cook for a homeless meal program once a week and we had a LOT of turkey left from Thanksgiving due to the generosity of the community. I precooked the rice and used the leftover gravy with the soup. Topped it with crushed zucchini chips. Salad, veggies, bread and dessert. Thanks for helping me provide a wonderful meal for our precious homeless.!!
I used all of the ingredients from this recipe only cooking on top of the stove and finishing it in the oven. We loved it, what a great use for leftover turkey.
This is a tasty unique recipe. I made a several changes to this recipe only because I live a half hour from a store and didn't have milk so used water with Wyler's chicken granules. I also can't get by with using onions for hubby so used granulated onion. I had an opened container of French fried onions so used those up. I don't use instant rice so cut the water to 1 c. and used COOKED basmati. I bake in the oven till bubbly. Even with the changes I don't feel I changed the flavor of the original recipe. The flavors were delicious. Definitely will make again!!!!
Great way to use left over turkey. Didnt use the microwave though, Sauteed onion and celery then baked the whole thing at 350 uncovered for 35 min. Used wild rice, added poultry seasoning, and cumin. Will make again.
Loved by all and TONS of flavor! It definitely is a great use of leftover turkey as you can't even tell that is what is in it. YUMMY! We used stuffing mix uncooked. PERFECT RECIPE TO USE UP THE LEFTOVERS!
This is a bit bland if you like more spice in your food. Other than that it has very good texture. I added some chicken stock to moisten up a bit and baked in oven for 1/2hr. at 350.
I've been preparing this recipe since it came out in the magazine. It's definitely a family favorite, easy and delicious. Stuffing mix works well in this recipe too.
