TURKEY CASSEROLE MAKING DAY

Today was turkey casserole making day.
Inbetween taking dd to & from work twice today, & going to the funeral home, I made 8 turkey casseroles. And I am tired.
I have cream of chicken soup in the picture, but didn't use any, although I do have some recipes that call for it, I always end up making a roux (equal amounts of melted butter & flour & then some milk and/or turkey stock) for my casseroles. And the turkey stock in the picture did have the grease removed from the top! (gross...lol)
Six of the casserole's were made with 'light & fluffy' noodles. I have the recipes on the side bar. I used broccoli & cheddar cheese in some. The last two casseroles I ran out of cheddar, so I used mozzarella & instead of broccoli these had spinach. That may be interesting. lol The last two are in the oven now, as they are 'dressing type' casseroles that need to be baked before freezing. All total, I made 8 casseroles using 18 cups of turkey!
.....looks like we'll be having turkey casserole about once a month for the next 8 months!

Looks like you had lots of turkey left over! We didn't have much. I guess after 25+ people eat on two turkeys twice there's not much left. I didn't even have any to bring back with me. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving, though I was reminded today on my drive home that our thanksgiving should be a daily thing! :-) Enjoy those casseroles!

You go girl! Look at how industrious you are! Since I didn't cook the turkey for Thanksgiving this year, I didn't need to do our traditional turkey stock for soup. I'll probably be cooking a turkey or two later this winter, though.

Hi Lori!
Hey, I have a good recipe for a dressing type casserole that can use turkey or chicken. It uses 3 cups of bread crumbs & c cups of turkey....well, & other things too. It's pretty good. :) I did take pics of it last night when it finally came out of the oven. Maybe I'll post that recipe tomorrow.
