If you followed Munching Madness, then you already know of my penchant for re-making leftovers into something different and delicious. If not, you will soon see.
There was a ton of turkey leftover from my last stock-making fiasco. In addition, I had a cup or two of brown rice waiting to be used up. When I was cleaning out the fridge I threw them into a bowl to save room, assuming I would make something yummy with them later. Boy, was I right!
I decided a casserole was in order. It is cold cold cold here in NJ, and warm comforting meals are in order. To start, I copped up a heaping cup of carrots and celery. It went into a pan with lots-o-butter and 3 enormous cloves of garlic (chopped).
When they were starting to soften and smell good, I added chopped up parsley, salt, pepper, and about 3 T of flour.
A little more butter was added and it was mixed together. I probably should have let it cook a little longer, but I got impatient.
The liquid was added next. 3/4 cup stock and 1/2 cup milk went on in and the stove was turned up to medium/high.
When it came to a boil, it was mixed together with the turkey and rice in a Pyrex dish.
It was covered with some tin foil and baked at 350* for 10 minutes (until it was warm).
HOLY COW! I can’t even believe how yummy this was. I would eat this all. the. time. It is THAT good. Try it!
