Cooking Thursday

Here's a great recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers.  I saw this recipe on Thanksgiving and since I had several of these things left over, decided to try it.  It was so good!  It will definitely be made again.

Leftover Turkey Casserole

4 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup turkey stock
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 box Stove Top Stuffing
1 cup water (or can use turkey stock if you have it)
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups chopped or shredded turkey
1 can corn, drained
1 can green beans, drained

In medium saucepan, heat butter until melted. Whisk in flour, salt and pepper until smooth.  Whisk in turkey stock and heavy cream and heat until thickened.  Stir in cheese until melted.
In medium bowl, stir together stuffing mix, one cup water (or turkey stock) and the second 4 tablespoons butter. Place in microwave for 4 minutes.
In large bowl, stir together turkey, corn and beans. Reserved one cup stuffing and mix the rest with the turkey mix. Stir in cheese sauce.
Place this in crock pot or into greased 7x11 pan.
Sprinkle remaining stuffing over top.
Cook on low for 4 hours, or in 350-degree oven for 35 minutes.  Bake covered with foil if using oven, and uncover for the last 10 minutes.

*This recipe is very flexible; you can use chicken and chicken stock instead of turkey.  You can use left-over vegetables, and can use carrots or peas instead of or in addition to the veggies listed.
