We were a bit tired of turkey on the 3rd day, so I came up with a way to change up the flavor. Swiss cheese did the trick! My hunny thinks he doesn't like Swiss cheese and he loves this dish. Go figure... LOL.

When wondering what to make with leftover turkey, give this broccoli casserole a try. It's savory, creamy, cheesy and really easy to make. The Swiss cheese and butter cracker crumbs on top are a nice finish to the dish. This is a filling casserole and a great way to use Thanksgiving leftovers. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
