  • Yield: 6 servings
  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 50 mins

Ingredients

1-- (12 pack) King's Hawaiian Original Rolls (3 cups cubed)*
3cups diced cooked turkey
8ounces mild cheddar cheese, shredded
1tablespoon all-purpose flour
1tablespoon Dijon or spicy mustard
3tablespoons butter, melted
4-- large eggs, beaten
3cups milk
1teaspoon salt
1/4teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Place bread, turkey and cheese in a large bowl and blend with a large spoon gently. In another bowl, whisk eggs, add flour and whisk, and then add mustard, melted butter, eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Whisk thoroughly.
  2. Pour milk mixture over the bread, turkey and cheese; stir gently to blend (be careful not to over-stir as the bread can become overly moist and break apart).
  3. Let stand for five to ten minutes for bread to absorb liquid.
  4. Pour into a buttered 2-quart baking dish.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350F and bake for 50 minutes (should be lightly golden and puffed). Test with a knife inserted into center; it should come out clean with little liquid on the knife.
  6. For a lighter dish, consider using low-fat mild cheddar cheese and low-fat milk.

*Any King's Hawaiian product, cubed, will be ideal for this recipe, including Snacker Rolls or Original Round Bread.
