Broccoli Rice Turkey Casserole

5 / 5 (1 review)

There is something so comforting about a delicious casserole and this delicious recipe is just another great example of that!  This is a huge hit at potlucks and parties and so appreciated when delivering meals for friends.  One of the best things about this recipe is how incredibly versatile it is.  You can really change up the ingredients  to make it all your own.  Plus, it’s a great way to use up your leftovers!  It can be done with left over baked chicken or during the holiday season!  If your refrigerator looks like mine at the holidays then it’s like that turkey keeps replenishing itself and everybody is already tired of turkey sandwiches.  Why not use this yummy casserole to break up the monotony of turkey in your lives.  I would also be completely foolish not to mention it is a fantastic way to get the kids to eat broccoli which all parents know can be a HUGE challenge with some super picky little ones.  One of my girls loves to eat the tops off of the broccoli, but another one always snarls up her little nose and refuses to eat the “tiny trees.”  By putting them in this casserole I never receive any push back or get any complaints from my family at all.  This Broccoli Rice Turkey Casserole is super easy to prepare and will let you have dinner on the table in right around 30 minutes which makes it perfect for a weeknight or weekend meal.  If you are concerned about being pressed for time you could always cook up your chicken or turkey, steam your broccoli, and prepare your rice ahead of time so that all you have left to do is mix everything together and top with cheese before tossing in the oven.  Seriously the cheesy topping is awesome!  Don’t forget to let us know what you think!
