Grandma's Turkey Rice-Almond Dish

Angie Robinson


My Grandma had an old Fannie Farmer cookbook in which she also taped all her clipped recipes or handwritten favorites. I found this one that I loved, even as a picky kid.

It was topped with cornflakes in the recipe, but I like crushed Ritz. Feel free to top with the cornflakes instead. It also had a stick of melted butter on top, so I cut that back.
Use low fat cream soup and mayo to save calories.
