iApprove: Turkey Casserole.

March 1, 2009

So, we were out pretty late today.  Went to church, spent a while chatting after church (rather, the parents did), forty-five-minute commute home… at the end, we were home at about 3:30.

Well, nobody wanted to cook anything, but we needed food, so I threw together a turkey casserole.

I love these things.  I also love tuna casseroles, but overall I prefer turkey for two reasons: (1) less mercury and (2) it does not taste like fish.  The reason I am fond of casseroles is because they are easy to make and usually contain a wide variety of nutrients in a single dish.

So here’s how I made it:

  1. Grab the cooked turkey out of the fridge.  (We’d baked one the other day, which is where the meat came from.  Casserole requires pre-cooked meat.)
  2. Put some water on the stove for noodles.
  3. Peel off large chunks of turkey breast, dice them, and put into a bowl.
  4. Put noodles into water.
  5. Thaw out some cauliflower and cut it into small chunks.
  6. Grate some cheese onto turkey.
  7. Add cooked noodles to cauliflower, drain well, and add to turkey & cheese.  Mix well.
  8. Add large amounts of sour cream and mayonnaise, as well as some salt and half an onion.

And that was pretty much it.  Were I feeling more ambitious, I would have added garlic (of which I heartily approve), but this was kind of a rush-job, whatever’s-in-the-kitchen casserole.  Basic but tasty.
