One of the most flavorful and popular dishes using Thanksgiving leftovers is turkey and broccoli casserole. This recipe can be easy to make, as well as great tasting.
To make this dish, you need to visit the supermarket and buy two ten-ounce packages of broccoli, as well as two cups of coarsely diced turkey, a can of cream of mushroom soup, a half cup of skim milk and half a cup of grated cheddar cheese. You can substitute light or sodium free options for many of these ingredients.

You will find that this casserole becomes a family favorite, and you might decide that it should become part of your regular menu, and not just reserved for disposing of those Thanksgiving leftovers.
