Instructions Checklist

    Advertisement
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; cook celery at a boil until tender, 5 to 10 minutes; drain.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and bell pepper in the melted butter until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Whisk flour into onion mixture until the butter and flour form a paste. Add mushroom soup, milk, and mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is smooth, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Mix turkey, celery, pimento peppers, almonds, and salt into mushroom soup mixture; cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes. Pour mixture into a 2-quart casserole dish; top with bread crumbs and Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and cheese is melted, 30 to 40 minutes.

This is delicious cheesy goodness in a turkey casserole. I made a few modifications because my spouse doesn’t care for peppers or mushrooms. I simply substituted a carrot. Out of sheer laziness, I sautéed the celery, onion and carrot together in the butter. It worked out fine. Also, I used a mish-mash of different cheeses (cleaning out the frig.) This was yummy.

We found this just ok. I thought peppers and turkey? I made it as written and the consistency was creamy/great I served it over rice. Just not sure I liked the combination of flavors. If I fix it again I'll try adding carrots as others mentioned. It does seem to need something else. Read More

This was a very tasty recipe. I brought it to a potluck and everyone was raving about it and asking for seconds. I stir fried the celery along with the other veggies to avoid another step and it was fine. The bread crumbs seemed a little dry on top maybe next time I'd add a little butter drizzled over the crumbs. Read More

I skipped boiling the celery and cooked it with the onions. Boiling celery? Really? I skipped the canned mushrooms, because they aren't a favorite. The sauce thickened well. Be sure to cook the flour for a few minutes before adding the liquid. It was a little bland, but a great way to use up 3 cups of turkey after Thanksgiving. Read More

The only change I made was with the turkey. I had thinly sliced turkey for sandwiches and used it instead of turkey breast cube. It was delicious and was even better when it was warmed up the next day. Great for lunch or dinner. Next time I make this recipe I will use cubed turkey pieces although the sandwich type turkey was really good. It might be good to add chopped up broccoli to this recipe also. It can be very versatile as far as adding different veggies to it. Read More

I threw the celery in with the onions and pepper, instead of boiling it separately. I also used leftover stuffing instead of the bread crumbs on top. It was delicious, and I will keep this recipe as a favorite! Read More

It didn't thicken like a casserole. Was like a pot pie filling but VERY delish!! Due to my thickening problem I served it over some leftover pasta and it was so wonderful. The flavors were so great! Only 4 stars due to not being a true casserole but loved just the same. Read More
