Here is a delicious recipe submitted by one of our readers. Thanks, Grandma!

Cheddar Turkey Bake

2 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
4tsp dried minced onion
2 cups uncooked long grain rice
2 cups frozen peas thawed
4 cups cubed cooked turkey
2 cans condensed cheddar cheese soup undiluted
2 cups milk
1 tsp salt
2 cups finely crushed butter flavoured crackers
6 tbsp butter, melted

In a large saucepan, bring the broth, water and onion to a boil. Reduce heat. Add rice. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and fluff with a fork.

Divide rice between two greased 9″ square baking pans. Sprinkle each pan of rice with peas and turkey. In a bowl, combine the soup, milk and salt until smooth. Pour over turkey. Toss the cracker crumbs and butter and sprinkle over the top.

Cover and freeze one casserole for up to 3 months. Bake the second at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown.

To use the frozen casserole, thaw in the fridge for 24 hours. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until heated through.

    This sounds delicious! I always enjoy reading Grandma’s comments. Lots of wisdom and common sense. Tawra and Jill, hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Again, thank you for the work you do on this site. You are what we call in Mississippi “good folks”.

      Thanks Frances.
      this is one I found and I want to try it. Haven’t yet but it sure sounded good and easy.
      You can change the soup to change the flavour and really make it your own specialty.
      I am sure it will become a family favourite for many families.
      I never follow a recipe I just get the major ingredients and mix and match things to fit.

    This sounds so great for a cold winter night. I like to make things that will make several meals for myself. One dish casseroles are wonderful!

    Jill, I thought that Grandma hasn’t been around for awhile. I haven’t seen Rose lately either, but then I can’t always check this website everyday so I wasn’t sure.
    My Thanksgiving was nice. Hope yours was too. Did you ever have raisin pie? It’s very good if you like raisins. A few weeks ago I saw a man in a grocery store and he had 4 20 ounces raisin containers that he was buying, and so being curious, I asked him what he was going to do with ALL those raisins and he said his wife always makes raisin pie for Thanksgiving and since that sounded so good to me I thought I would make raisin pie for Thanksgiving too. Good for breakfast if you have leftovers.

    This recipe sounds yummy, and like something my husband would eat. We had ham for Thanksgiving since everyone like it the best. My 6 year old grandson was disappointed there was no turkey. So I may do one for Christmas, just for him!

    I like raisin (fruit) pie ~~ Mom and Grandma both made them when I was a kid. Mom would put a little rum flavoring in hers sometimes; that was good, too! I also like a good raisin cream pie once in a while. May have to make one or both of these for Christmas. Okay, now I’m hungry! Lol!
