Turkey Cordon Bleu Casserole

Updated on December 2, 2017

A Good Way to Use Up Some of Your Left Over Turkey

I have to thank Ree Drummond (Food Network Channel's "The Pioneer Woman") and her creativity for delicious casseroles for this recipe. I read her chicken cordon bleu casserole recipe, and I thought, "Why not substitute the chicken for turkey?" Casseroles are great because the whole meal is in one baking dish, and you can use up a lot of leftover ingredients you might have in your refrigerator.

So it was a no-brainer to use the turkey I had left over. Since it's still poultry, I thought it would still be good.

I was right; my family loved it. Also, you can make it ahead of time and just bake it when you are ready to eat it.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Serves six people

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups ham, cut in small cubes
  • 1 1/4 cup Swiss cheese, grated
  • 1 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 4 cups turkey, skinless and cut in cubes
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups milk, whole
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • To taste salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13" baking dish with butter.
  2. Put the ham on a paper towel-lined plate and microwave for 3 minutes to reduce the moisture content. Mix together the Swiss and Monterey Jack cheese in a bowl.
  3. Put about a third of the turkey in a layer in the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with half the ham. Sprinkle over 1/4 cup of the mixed cheese. Repeat 1 more time, then finish with a layer of turkey.
  4. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Put the breadcrumbs in a bowl, pour in half of the melted butter. Mix well and set aside.
  5. Add the flour to the remaining butter in the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, whisking out any lumps. Whisk in the milk, broth and Dijon mustard and let it cook until it begins to thicken. Remove from the heat and stir in 1 cup of the cheese until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Pour the sauce over the casserole. Sprinkle over the remaining 1 cup of cheese, then the breadcrumb mix. Bake until the top is browned and bubbly. 25 to 30 minutes. Enjoy!
