Turkey Leftovers? Try Yummy & Super Easy Turkey Noodle Casserole
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! Mine was full of family, friends, laughter and joy! So many blessings and I'm so thankful!
I'm looking forward to the New Year with some new goals and some hints to help us all stay more organized so we can spend more time with the ones we love! Stay connected to NW Momma for some real life inspiration, encouragement and helpful hints to make your life a little bit easier in 2011!
My first after-Christmas post is a SUPER EASY and YUMMY Turkey Noodle Casserole recipe to use up those turkey leftovers! I know after cooking and baking all week, the last thing I want to do is spend more time in the kitchen, so this tried and true recipe takes mere minutes to make. Ahhh, more time to relax on this Christmas vacation and enjoy the family!
There is joy in the journey!

Easy Turkey Noodle Casserole
Stir the soup, milk, peas, turkey and noodles in a 3-quart casserole. Stir the bread crumbs and butter in a small bowl.
Bake the turkey mixture at 400°F. for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbling. Stir the turkey mixture. Sprinkle with the bread crumb mixture.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the bread crumb mixture is golden brown.
*Note: The great thing about this recipe is that you can modify it with whatever you have on hand. Some popular modifications are:
- add broccoli instead of the peas
- add a small bag of frozen mixed veggies instead of the peas (make sure to defrost first).
- use cream of chicken soup instead of the cream of mushroom.
- top with cheddar cheese or your favorite cheese.
- for a little extra kick add 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper to the soup mixture.
Make it easy on yourself! Use what you have on hand! Enjoy!
