The Best Turkey Casserole

This dish has been my favorite since I was a kid. My mom used to ask my brother and I what special food we wanted for our birthdays (1 week apart), and this family recipe passed down from our grandmother was usually our request. If you’ve got extra turkey you’d like to use up in a meaningful way- this is definitely a great choice!

My brother came out to visit recently for my birthday, and I cooked a turkey just for this dish (yes, it’s that good). We ate up the casserole too fast for me to get a picture this time.

So, let the whole turkey picture remind you that there really is a lot of meat on one of those birds. It’s wonderful to know what to do with the extras. I always know what I want to do with them. Here it is:

This dish doesn’t take much effort. Get all the ingredients, mix them up a bit, spread them out and cook. So easy. So delicious.

Some people put onions and celery in their turkey casseroles. If you like that- go for it! This recipe is easy to work with and easy to add things to. Below is the original family recipe passed down to me. It works well for my kids (who don’t like chunks of celery or onion so much).


  • 12 pieces of bread toasted, buttered, and cut up into 1 inch rectangles.
  • 8 hard-boiled eggs. Peeled and chopped up. Here’s how to cook easy-to-peel hard-boiled eggs.
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup turkey broth
  • 3 cups leftover turkey (or whatever you have)


  1. Prepare hard-boiled eggs. Bring water to a boil. Place eggs into boiling water and cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat and cool with cold water. Peel and chop coarsely.
  2. While boiling eggs, toast bread. Butter it. Chop it into 1 inch chunks.
  3. Mix all ingredients in a large roasting pan. Then, spread them evenly across the bottom of the pan.
  4. Bake at 375°F for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool briefly.
  5. Enjoy!

Enjoy it Well

When you eat this, take time to sit around with those you love, smile at them, and chew slowly. Enjoy the meal. Enjoy those who are with you. Let them know specifically why you appreciate them. Thank God together for Who He is and all He has done. In short- enjoy this well.
