How to make Turkey Divan from Thanksgiving leftovers


Our family has a traditional of making Turkey Divan a day or two after Thanksgiving. It's a relatively easy to make casserole containing some healthy ingredients (like broccoli) to start easing us back into normal eating patterns.

Things You'll Need

  • Leftover Turkey
  • 2 1/2 lbs Broccoli
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 4 Tbps flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • Swiss Cheese
  • (optional) 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Cut the broccoli up into bite-sized pieces and steam it until soft.

  • Cover the bottom of a casserole dish with the steamed broccoli. This is where you get to choose how healthy this dish is - a thin layer is a token stab at healthfulness, where a couple inches starts to really mean something.

  • Cover the broccoli with a layer of leftover turkey, cut into bite-sized pieces. Either white or dark meat will do.

  • Melt the butter into a saucepan over medium heat. Add the flour and mix well. Slowly add the milk, stirring constantly.

  • Add a cup or two of grated swiss cheese to the sauce. Here's another opportunity to choose your desired level of healthfulness - a lot of cheese will be tasty, but rich!

  • (Optional) Add the wine to the sauce.

  • Add salt and pepper to the sauce to taste.

  • Pour the sauce over the turkey. Top with a sprinkling of grated parmesan cheese.

  • Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 15 minutes - until the cheese on top is melted.
