Poppy Seed Turkey Casserole

If you are wondering what to do with what’s left of the Thanksgiving turkey, this sensational casserole won’t reveal your secret of using leftovers.  Creamy ingredients and a crunchy, buttery topping make this dish delicious.  Don’t have any leftover turkey?  Simply substitute with cooked chicken breasts.


  • 5 cups cooked turkey (or chicken), chopped
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cups sour cream
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted
  • 1 tbsp poppy seeds
  • 2 cups crushed Ritz crackers
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375*.  Lightly spray a 13×9 baking dish with cooking spray.  In a large bowl, combine turkey, soups, sour cream, almonds and poppy seeds.  Blend well and pour into baking dish.  In a smaller bowl, combine crackers and melted butter until mixed.  Top casserole with buttered crackers.

Bake covered for 15 minutes.  Uncover and bake 10-15 more minutes or until golden and bubbly.  I served this with broccoli and carrots.  You can serve it over cooked rice if desired.  ENJOY!
