What’s Cooking: Leftover Turkey Casserole

When your Thanksgiving feast is over, you probably have enough leftovers to last for weeks but eating the same thing night after night can get boring Why not change things up a little bit with an easy and delicious dish that you can make while you're putting the leftovers away

Hi, I'm Chef Amy and today I'm going to teach you how to make Leftover Thanksgiving Casserole Spray a square baking dish with cooking spray Now, cut six slices of whole-wheat bread into one-inch cubes and place half of them into the bottom of the dish In a separate bowl, we can combine about 4 ounces of shredded turkey with a half-cup each of celery, diced onion, light mayo, and a sprinkle of pepper We'll mix this together and spoon it over our bread cubes

And then, place the remaining bread cubes on top Finally, we'll combine two eggs and a cup and a half of low-fat milk and pour it over the cubes We can cover the dish and refrigerate overnight Ok, I've preheated my oven to 325 degrees and now let's spoon a can of low-sodium cream of mushroom on top of the casserole Then take two more slices of bread and spread a teaspoon of margarine on each

Cut them into cubes and put them on top of the casserole Now, it's ready to go into the oven for 60 minutes After it's done cooking, the last thing we need to do is sprinkle on a half a cup of low-fat cheese and let it stand for about 15 minutes before serving So that the cheese gets all melty and delicious Our Leftover Turkey Casserole is hot out of the oven

We can serve this with a side of veggies For this and other great recipes, check out the USDA's "What's Cooking?" website
