TURKEY & RICE CASSEROLE (with Smoked Gouda)

Teresa G


This is a great way to turn that leftover holiday turkey into a delicious "comfort food" casserole. It's creamy and cheesy, with a hint of smoke from the gouda, and the flaky topping adds a bit of crunch. Warning: It's difficult to eat only one serving!
