"I like to use this recipe after Thanksgiving or Christmas because it's a good way to use leftover turkey. If I don't have turkey, I use chicken, which is just as good. My family enjoys this dish very much."


1 (16-ounce) package frozen broccoli florets, or 2 1/2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
3cups cooked long-grain rice
4cups chopped cooked turkey, light and dark meat
1 1/3cups sliced fresh button mushrooms, or 1 (7-ounce) jar sliced mushrooms, drained
6ounces Cheddar or American cheese, grated
1/2cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 (10-ounce) can reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup
1/2cup mayonnaise
1/2teaspoon salt
1/4teaspoon black pepper
1 (2-ounce) can French-fried onions


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish.
  2. Cook broccoli by steaming until barely tender; drain well. Layer rice, broccoli, turkey, mushrooms and cheese in prepared pan. Pour broth evenly over the top.
  3. Combine soup, mayonnaise, salt and pepper in a small bowl; mix well. Spoon over top of the casserole, using back of a spoon to spread evenly. Sprinkle onions over top. Bake, uncovered, 35 to 40 minutes, until golden.
