Creamy Baked Turkey Recipe


Regardless if you work outside or inside the home, your day is jam packed with activities and appointments that can make supper time a challenge. Getting a warm, homemade supper on the table can be a family’s biggest obstacle of the day and one that we all strive to overcome.

How do we do it?

Some nights we do better than others, but if you are like me, you still always want to do better for your family. Simple recipes that include few ingredients and little cooking time are popular at my house on these busy evenings. I love knowing that with just a few ingredients I generally have on hand in my refrigerator and pantry, I can have supper on the table in less time than it would take for take out to be delivered or to drive through the fast food line and make it back home.

I was so excited when I was asked by BlogHer to participate in their Hellmann’s and Best Foods review. All of the recipes presented to me sounded delicious and like something that my family would enjoy. In less than 30 minutes, I had a delicious, piping hot supper on the table that my family absolutely loved.

The best part?

The recipe was so simple my son enjoyed helping me prepare it. I love knowing he joined me in the kitchen making our supper while sharing with me what happened during football practice that afternoon. As I was cleaning up dishes after getting Little Buddy to bed, I realized supper times just really can’t get much better than this.

Here’s the recipe.

Recipe Review


  1. Now I am really wishing that I had some leftover turkey to make this. It is going on my must make list and being pinned:-) My biggest challenge in cooking dinner is the timing. I tend to lose track of time throughout the day and then it is dinner time and have to make something fast.

  2. Its just me and my husband so sometimes i just can’t bring myself to cook a nice meal for just two! And the dishes are the worst part! I hate them lol

  3. My biggest challenge this week was offering to do too much and I ended up baking for 5 different Thanksgiving dinners! Never again!

  4. OH! Robyn! Does that look good! Going to buy some tenderloins to make this for the weekend. One question, in that GORGEOUS picture – what exactly is the topping? Did you use shredded parmesan? I want my casserole to look exactly like yours, please!!!!! Thanks!

  5. We eat a few meals of all the leftovers and make grilled turkey and provolone sandwiches. Then I freeze the rest already cubed into 3cup portions to add to homemade turkey pot pie or turkey/noodle/veggie soup on those cold days in Wisconsin!

  6. I was planning on putting them into a pot pie but they got eaten when people came home from school and from work for a snack.

  7. I like to cut up some turkey, place it in a bowl and mix it with some seasoning, flour and bread crumbs. Then I will fry it along with some cut up potatoes!! yum!!

  8. Hi!
    I was invited to Thanksgiving this year so I don’t have Turkey leftovers but this dish sounds wonderful and I will have to use it for Christmas leftovers or it sounds so simple to use any time! πŸ™‚ Love it! Thank you for sharing it! πŸ™‚ I also use leftover turkey in turkey tettrazini or for sandwiches. πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the chance!

  9. Biggest challenge on getting dinner on the table during the week..? Being busy! No kids yet, but I’m working and going to grad school classes a few nights a week. Looking forward to the holidays for a break..! πŸ™‚

  10. We’re always running out of time or too tired to cook after work, so we just eat out. I’d like to cook more though, be more healthy and save money. Thanks for sharing the recipe and giveaway!

  11. My biggest challenge for getting supper on the table is my kids’ sports schedules. We live in the middle of nowhere and if my son has an after-school activity, it requires transportation. It’s difficult to plan a meal that I can get ready and that we will be able to eat with everything that’s going on!
    Your recipe sounds delicious! I think I’ll try it this weekend.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  12. I’ve been throwing turkey into just about everything this week.
    I’m going to have to try that recipe! Turkey sandwiches are one of my fave’s!

  13. I like to make stock out of the turkey bones and serve the broth with leftover meat, water spinach and noodles. Garnish with coriander.

  14. Time is my biggest challenge in getting meals on the table. I both work and go to school and my class schedule makes it difficult to cook and get a nice, well balanced meal on the table. I’m always on the lookout for simple, yet healthy meals that can be whipped together in no time!

  15. I used the turkey leftovers to make turkey sandwiches with my homemade wheat bread adding lettuce, mayonnaise, mustard and pepper. Thanks for this great giveaway.


  16. We like to make Turkey Subs, loaded with lettuce, Mayo, tomato and sliced red onions and quesadillas!

  17. The biggest challenge is trying to get dinner served early, so the kids can get homework done in time to head out the door for the girls cheer practice, big guy scout meeting, and the 1 year old fussy with teething and wanting to be held.

  18. I saute some curry powder & a finely diced shallot in olive oil.
    I mix this into mayonnaise and stir in cubed turkey meat for a salad or sandwiches.

  19. My biggest challenge is not having a plan before I get home. Then it’s 6pm, we all hungry and desperate for something to eat.

  20. I am actually a vegetarian and have been for over 11 years; however, I remember cooking turkeys before making the change. The BEST turkey leftover that I remember was veggie soup. We would take the left over gravy, any left over veggies, and left over turkey that was chopped up and put it all in a crockpot. Cover with water and season with poultry seasonings and cook. WONDERFUL stew!
