Wild Turkey Rice Bake
Wild rice, turkey and vegetables are combined in a savory sauce and topped with golden crumbs in this hearty dish from Margaret Hill of Roanoke, Virginia. "Cooked wild turkey can be a little dry, but not when it's prepared this way," she assures. "I never have leftovers."

My husband loves this recipe! I ate one serving, he ate the rest before I could pack up the left overs for my lunch the next day! This is a wonderful way to use left over turkey!
