It's never too early to start thinking about turkey leftovers!
I love turkey and I love how cheap I can find it this time of year. I will buy several, cook them and shred the meat to use for many things. Casseroles, salads, quesadillas and soup. Pretty much anything that I use chicken for, I will sub turkey.
I usually shred it and put it in 10 oz. portions in baggies and put them in the freezer. 10 oz. is good for us, it's about 2 - 2 1/2 cups.
I love this casserole. I've actually made it twice in the last couple of weeks as I had an open bag of stuffing cubes. It comes together very easily.
As you can see by the pictures, I used different kind of cheese. The first time, I used colby jack. The second time, I only had mozzarella. Both were good but I preferred the colby jack.
I use egg beaters but you could certainly just use eggs. I would say to use about 7 - 8 regular eggs with this if you are making that substitution.
