Turkey Divan © 1971
Today's recipes were designed to incorporate those wonderful post Thanksgiving ingredients: leftovers.
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.
For broccoli: 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen asparagus spears.
For sliced turkey: 1 1/2 to 2 cups cut-up cooked turkey.
• Chicken Divan: Substitute 1 1/2 to 2 cups cut-up cooked chicken for the turkey slices.

*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!
