It's almost time for school to get into full swing. Schedules are hectic and you may have less time to play about in the kitchen. Don't grab fast food! Here is a delicious casserole that is very easily thrown together. A real family pleaser (if you family likes turkey). I "borrowed" this one from Marie at The English Kitchen.
A recipe you'll love to have on your rotation for a quickie meal with big return on flavor. Healthy stuff too :-)
1 cup of long grain rice
3 cup of cooked turkey, chopped
2 cups of cooked chopped broccoli
1 1/2 cups of milk (
1 cup chicken broth
1 can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
2 dessert spoons of mayonnaise (about half a cup)
2 stalks of celery, trimmed and chopped
1/2 medium onion, peeled and chopped
8 ounces cheddar cheese, grated
salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350*F. Butter a large baking baking dish. Set aside.
Stir together the rice, turkey, broccoli, soup, milk, broth, mayonnaise, onion and celery in a bowl. Add half of the cheese and stir again. Season to taste with some salt and pepper. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Cover tightly with some foil.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the rice is cooked and the casserole is bubbling. Add more cheese and bake until the cheese is melted on top and it is lightly browned.
Note- I used a full turkey leg (drumstick and thigh) that I got at the shops. I simmered the leg in lightly salted water, along with some peppercorns, a bayleaf, a stick of celery, half an onion and a carrot for several hours until it was fall off the bone tender. I then had enough meat for this casserole and a tasty stock to make some soup with.
