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
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.
