This simple turkey and rice casserole is an excellent way to use leftover turkey. If you happen to have remaining gravy, add some to the sauce mixture to give it even more flavor.
The condensed soup makes the recipe an easy and convenient one-dish meal. Use cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup. You could also top this easy casserole with some shredded cheddar cheese just before it's done baking.
Serve it with some steamed green beans and cornbread to round out the meal.
- 2 cups turkey (cooked, diced)
- 2 cups rice (cooked)
- 1/4 cup green pepper (finely chopped)
- 1/2 cup chopped onion (finely)
- Optional: 1 (3 to 4-ounce can) sliced mushrooms (drained)
- 1 (10 3/4 ounces can) condensed cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Salt (to taste)
- Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Gather the ingredients. Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine everything—turkey, cooked rice, chopped green pepper and onion, sliced mushrooms (if using), condensed soup, garlic powder, salt, and pepper—in a large bowl.
Spoon the mixture into a greased 1 1/2-quart casserole dish.
Cover and bake 30 to 40 minutes, until bubbly.
Serve and enjoy!
- Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge and reheated the next day.

- Make the casserole with diced cooked chicken instead of turkey.
- Add a few tablespoons of bacon.
- Top the casserole with toasted slivered almonds just before it's done to add some crunch.
