"I cooked the turkey that was taking up so much space in my freezer, but my family got pretty sick of leftovers when the gravy ran out. Dinner tonight HAD to contain turkey but I was longing for someth..." See moreing different. This recipe is REALLY different and all of us loved it. It was such a nice break from the standard casserole recipes for leftover turkey. I didn't have peas so I left them out and I substituted walnuts for almonds (because that is what I had). After eating it this time, I think I will add pineapple another time. I am always trying to increase my family's fiber intake and I was thrilled to see the numbers. By using pre-cooked bacon, there was also no added fat. The ideas are endless and I was plesantly surprised by this recipe. Healthy and yummy! Thanks Doreen"
"Very good recipe ... of course, like most cooks, I modified to suit my tastes and food on hand ... first I scaled it down to feed 4. I used 4 slices of bacon ... chopped 1/2 of a huge onion, 1 stalk ..." See moreof celery, 1 carrot, 8 oz of fresh mushrooms ... cooked; those to soften in the bacon grease ... added the shredded turkey ... then added the almonds, I also added pine nuts and substituted dried cherries for the raisins ... I didn't let those cook long because we wanted the crunch ... I added a few TBSP's of crushed red pepper flakes for some heat, added the rice and about 1/4 cup of soy sauce to give it some more flavor ... sprinkled fresh chopped cilantro just before serving ... fantastic alternative to fried rice with lots of nice flavor surprises in it ... I think I may add some shrimp next time ... we will be eating this again!"
"Hi, I made this last night based on the reviews here and really I did not find it that great. The only things I had changed was I used the precooked bacon, pecans instead of almonds, and cilantr..." See moreo instead of parsley. My husband also didn't think it was great - it was ok but nothing special and I wouldn't make it again. It seemed a little bland. I would also suggest cooking some of the veggies first - the mushrooms take much longer - and the apples were sort of mushy by the time the mushrooms were cooked through."
