Turkey Divan

What would Thanksgiving be without leftovers?  My family's all-time favorite way to eat leftover turkey is in a casserole we call, Turkey Divan.  Its so easy to make and tastes so good.  I've actually been known to make this dish with sliced deli turkey when I don't feel like roasting a whole bird or breast.

2 cups cooked rice (any kind will do)
1 regular size bag of chopped broccoli (10 ounces frozen) or similarly cooked and prepared fresh broccoli
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional, but yummy)
salt and pepper to taste
Enough leftover turkey to layer in a 13 x 9 casserole

Butter a 13 x 9 casserole.  Spread cooked rice on bottom of dish.  Top with well-drained broccoli.  Next arrange turkey slices or pieces to cover the entire casserole.

Combine soup, mayo and cheese in a separate bowl.  Spread the mixture over the turkey, to cover.  

Bake at 350 for 45 minutes, or until golden brown, and bubbly.  Serve with leftover cranberry sauce or chutney (LINK)
