Mom's Turkey Casserole

Chuck Berkman


I remember some 30 years ago, my mom making this for the first time and serving it. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! But, then again, I have always liked casseroles. I usually add more celery and green bell pepper than the recipe calls for. Use your own discretion for the amount of bacon, sautéing medium, etc. Recipe is easily tweaked for personal preferences. We have used chicken and ham in lieu as well. As a lazy cook, this dish causes me a few more dishes to wash than I like to, but it is worth it! Thank you, Mom!

Minus the topping, this also freezes well, ahead of time
