Creamy Turkey & Noodles

I needed a recipe for the left-over Thanksgiving turkey. After scouring dozens of recipes, I just didn't find anything that jumped out at me. So I made my own.

The problem I usually run into is the turkey casseroles and dishes don't have a lot of flavor. The cream cheese and gravy mix, along with the bacon, give this a wonderful creamy texture with lots of flavor!

This is versatile...add veggies and use chicken instead of turkey. Throw in a greased casserole dish, top with canned french fried onions and bake for extra crunch.

My husband loved it!
