Thanksgiving Leftovers Part 1

Frequently on various cooking shows you hear about "Round Two" recipes. This evening we are cooking Turkey Broccoli Bake. Its fairly simple and makes great use of the turkey leg, thigh, and wing meat left over from the holiday feast.

What you will need:
2 cups cubed turkey meat
1 cup thawed broccoli Florettes
1 can cream of "....." soup--I use chicken, broccoli, celery, cheddar (which ever you like)
1 6oz package of chicken stuffing mix
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease an 11x7 or 9x13 baking dish
Bring to boil water in a medium saucepan on the stove, then stir in stuffing and remove from heat. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
Layer the turkey and broccoli in the bottom of the dish. Cover with soup and mix together.
Fluff the stuffing and spread over the top of the meat/veggie mixture. Then top with your cheese.
Bake for 30-35 minutes and enjoy! This is also a great recipe with leftover cooked chicken.

  1. I started laughing when I saw this cause it's basically what we ha for dinner. I followed recipe for it off the box of stove top, but only for the cooking temp and time and instead layered the leftover turkey with left over green bean casserole and stuffing. Then topped with cheese.
