This is a wonderful use of leftover turkey or you could even use chicken. You may also want to add potato chips to the top for some crunch.

The mission of using this recipe was to try and use up leftovers. The only substitution we made was to use a cup of regular milk in place of evaporated milk. It turned out surprisingly well. Usually we cook with a lot of spices, but we just added some ground pepper to the top and my husband and I both went back for seconds. My one comment about the instructions was that I did not know whether to bake it with the lid on or off, and tried with the lid on. In 50 minutes, the casserole hadn't set, so I had to bake it another 20 with the lid off. I think in the future I would try this recipe with shredded potatoes rather than rice, just for the texture. Thanks for sharing, BABYPHAT55!

There were no spices. I used a can of corn because my husband does not eat peas. I topped it off with cubed hash browns and sprayed oil on them to insure browning. The reason I topped them was to keep the vegetables from drying out and becoming hard little nuggets in the dish. But I would make it again and my way.

This was great, however I added fresh broccoli and doubled the cheese. It still turned out great. I also used brown minute rice, which I cooked first then added and everything turned out fine. Will make again when I have left over turkey!
