This is a blog of my adventures in the kitchen. I always like to try new things, and I'm looking up different recipes constantly. Some recipes on here will be my own, some will be found recipes. Some will work, some won't. Trial and error, right? I'm no professional and I don't claim to be, I just enjoy cooking. :)

Semi-homemade Turkey Divan Casserole

So, in my family we always make WAY too much at Thanksgiving. This includes too much turkey. This recipe is one of my favorite ways to use up some of those leftovers.

The measurements I've given are a complete guess. I just threw stuff in as I went. :)

Things you'll need:

Cooked turkey, cubed (sub with chicken if ya want)
4 to 6 cups cooked rice
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup milk
onion flakes, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste
grated cheddar cheese

First, preheat your oven to 350°F.

Then, find the most unappetizing colored bowl in the kitchen and use it to add your chopped turkey.

Then do the same to the broccoli.

Actually, the bowl is optional. I just needed something to throw the stuff in while I was chopping. :P

In another bowl mix the cream of chicken, milk, onions and mayo. Add some salt and pepper.

Grate your cheese, if you haven't already.

Add rice to a 9x13" dish.

Cover with most of the soup mix, and stir it lightly.

Add your turkey and broccoli.

This step is completely optional: Add the rest of the soup mix.

Add the cheese.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake.

I baked in a convection oven for 40 minutes. In a regular oven I'd go 40 minutes to an hour. :)

Voila! Simple, right? :)

Just an update

It's been awhile since my last post. I've been sick, so I haven't been cooking much. Unless you count opening a can of soup or toasted bread "cooking"... ;) Feeling much better now, so hopefully I'll get back to it and get some new recipes posted.
