Leftovers Reimagined - Turkey Rice Bake

I love challenging myself to reinvent leftovers, especially since my husband for a long time would not eat any leftovers.  Being thrifty and always looking for a way to present the same ingredients in a different format I utilized the following for tonight's hearty Turkey Rice Bake:
  • 1 cup chopped turkey meat - leftovers from Sunday's Roasted Whole Turkey
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup frozen sweet corn
  • 1 small container of white rice from Chinese leftovers earlier in the week
  • 1 can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 3 ladles full of homemade turkey stock from the before mentioned roasted bird's carcass
  • 1 can of mushroom pieces, drained
  • 1 bunch of scallions
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of Hot Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons of shredded cheese
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley
Combine everything in a non stick pan, mix till combined and heated through, pop in a 350° F oven for 15-20 minutes (until the top starts to crust/brown).  Serve in a bowl with a spoon and a fresh side salad for a complete meal.
