Turkey Divan © 1971

Today's recipes were designed to incorporate those wonderful post Thanksgiving ingredients: leftovers.

Turkey Divan*
2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen broccoli spears
6 slices turkey, about 1/4 inch thick
6 slices process American cheese
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup


1/3 cup milk
1 can (3 1/2 ounces) French fried onion rings

Heat oven to 350º. Rinse broccoli with small amount of running cold water to separate and remove ice crystals: drain. Arrange broccoli in ungreased baking dish, 11 1/2 x 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 inches. (If broccoli stems are more than 1/2 inch in diameter, cut lengthwise in half.)

Top with turkey and cheese slices. Cover with mixture of soup and milk. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with onion rings; bake 5 minutes longer. 4 to 6 servings.

Substitutions
For broccoli: 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen asparagus spears.
For sliced turkey: 1 1/2 to 2 cups cut-up cooked turkey.

VARIATION
Chicken Divan: Substitute 1 1/2 to 2 cups cut-up cooked chicken for the turkey slices.

And don't forget these great recipes in the archives:
Cheddar Turkey Casserole
Cranberry Pork Chops
Potato Puff Dinner (*Contains turkey)

*When I initially saw the name of this recipe I had to snicker because where I was raised a "divan" is a fancy word for 'sofa' or 'couch.' And who wouldn't love a hot, steamin' portion of Turkey Couch? M-m-m-m! LOL!

ALthough I normally hate leftover Thanksgiving recipes, preferring to have one, and only ONE, turkey sandwich and trash the bird, I have to say that this looks pretty good and I may even get my lazy ass up and make it for dinner tonight. Anything with cheese and mushroom soup HAS to be good. I think a nice steaming side of rice would go nicely. Thanks!

Terri-
Ooh, yeah, rice does sound like a good side dish. Something to break up the richness. I loves me some toikey, so there's not much that isn't good about turkey...except the dark meat. *shudder*

I'm glad someone besides myself is actually contemplating making some of these recipes! :)
