This casserole is a great use of leftover Thanksgiving or Christmas turkey! Make it and put it into a casserole dish and seal well, then put it in the freezer for a couple of weeks down the line when you're craving the taste of the holidays again. :) It also travels well to potlucks, especially if you use one of those disposable foil casserole dishes! You can even make the bread cubes from leftover rolls, toasted in your oven.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt 1/2 cup butter, then stir in the flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper and lower the temperature and cook over low until bubbly and golden.
  3. Gradually whisk in the broth and milk and simmer for 4 minutes while continuing to whisk, then taste and add more salt and pepper, if you like; set the sauce aside.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the bread cubes, onion, garlic, celery, mushrooms, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, sage, and remaining 1/4 cup melted butter; toss well to coat.
  5. Add the chopped turkey meat and sauce and mix well.
  6. Pan spray a 2-quart casserole dish and pour dressing-chicken-sauce mixture into the dish, top with the grated Parmesan, cover, and bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes, then uncover and bake 10 to 15 more minutes until Parmesan is golden.

This was easy to make and my whole family loved it. I made mashed potatoes on the side and increased the recipe for 7-10 as we have a large family. This is a keeper!

I swapped diced red pepper for mushrooms, and it was a great dish. Thanks for sharing!

Great casserole to use with leftover turkey. My boys absolutely loved this casserole. I actually used some corn bread stuffing mix for the toasted bread cubes and fresh mushrooms. Great taste. Quick and easy. Thanks for a great recipe.
