Turkey Supreme Casserole

The BEST casserole for that leftover turkey is this Turkey Supreme Casserole. It's complete comfort food, and a delicious way to re-purpose those leftovers.

Turkey, veggies, French fried onions, mashed potatoes, soooooo yummmm! I used diced carrots, green beans and corn, but you can add any veggies you like such as green peas and sliced mushrooms.

No "canned cream of " soup here, you make a simple roux with butter, diced onion, carrots, celery and flour. Then you add turkey or chicken bone broth/stock and heavy whipping cream to create a delicious creamy base for this Turkey Supreme Casserole.

Dig in! It's a complete comfort food package. You can even put it together one day and bake it another. So simple and very easy to make.

3 cups cooked chopped turkey (or chicken)
1/2 stick butter (4 tablespoons)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 stalks celery, diced small
2 large carrots, diced small
1 medium onion, diced small
2 cups green beans
1 1/2 cups corn
2 cups chicken or turkey bone broth or stock
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1-2 tsp poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 container French fried onions
3 cups mashed potatoes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large pan, melt butter. Add onions, celery, and carrots, cooking over medium-high heat several minutes or until onions are softening. Stir in flour, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning.

Add chicken or turkey bone broth (stock) and heavy whipping cream stirring well. Bring mixture to a low boil stirring often; add green beans, corn and chopped turkey heating until just heated through. Remove from heat and stir in 3/4 of the French fried onions, reserving a few to sprinkle on top of the potatoes.

Spoon mixture into a prepared 9 x 9-inch baking dish. Cover top with mashed potatoes, spreading evenly across casserole; sprinkle remaining French fried onions on top.

Bake 350 oven 40-45 minutes or until hot throughout, potatoes are browning slightly and casserole is bubbly around edges (put a pan under the casserole to catch any drippings that may bubble out when baking). Remove casserole from the oven and let sit 5-10 minutes before serving.

Yield: 6 servings
