Another Idea for Turkey


For those of you who are still grappling with leftover turkey, here is another recipe that you might want to try. I think it is just about the ideal after-turkey-dinner recipe because it contains turkey, mashed potatoes, and green beans. I'm not sure where this recipe came from, but it's very tasty.

Green Bean and Turkey Casserole
2 cups cubed cooked turkey or chicken
2 cups fresh or frozen cooked green beans
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/3 cup milk (plus additional for moistening mashed potatoes)
approximately 2 cups cooked mashed potatoes (make extra the day of your feast)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup French fried onions (from can or bag)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix turkey, green beans, soup, and milk. Pour into a two quart greased casserole dish. (If you have a little leftover stuffing you can add this too.) Moisten mashed potatoes with a little milk and whisk to fluff them up. Spread on top of turkey/green bean mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake about 25 mins. or until bubbly. Top with french fried onions and return to oven for about 5 more minutes. Enjoy!

Since Rob always gets to post pictures of our grandson Drew, I'm going to take advantage of doing a post to put out a picture we took yesterday while our little guy was napping with his friend (Curious) George - who makes a great pillow!

    I like this Mr/Mrs IVman team writing on the blog! 🙂 Your recipe sounds good, Becka, although we stayed away from turkey this Christmas and don’t have leftovers to use this particular recipe.

    And, of course, the Drew picture is a really, really cute one! Unfortunately, the one picture I posted of our new little grandson is the only one we are allowed to post on the internet. I’ll just have to enjoy seeing yours grow!
