Mom's Turkey Divine {RECIPE} and {GIVEAWAY}

Did you know that this week is Turkey Comfort Food Makeover Week?

With Christmas approaching, we find ourselves looking forward to our next large family meal together where we will enjoy turkey. Turkey is delicious and nutritious and if you cook a large one, there are plenty of opportunities and ideas for how to use up your left overs.

The following recipe is something that I associate with Thanksgiving and Christmas time as my Mom always uses her turkey leftovers to make this yummy casserole!

Add a stock cube if desired for additional flavour.
