:: Easy Turkey & Stuffing Bake ::

Last night I ventured out and tried another new recipe from my Better Homes and Gardens special Comfort Foods edition and this time it was Turkey Stuffing Bake. The recipe makes enough to fill (almost to the top) a 9x13 baking dish so it's really good that Trev likes it cause he's going to be taking it for lunch for a while!
I did find that the turkey was little bit dry after being cooked through and then baked but definitely not enough so to make it unpleasant to eat.
I also added some frozen peas and corn for some extra veggies.....
Turkey & Stuffing Bake
3 cups water
1 cup chopped red pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
*the recipe called for 1/2 long grain rice but I substituted in a cup of brown rice*
2 boxes stuffing mix
4 cups diced cooked turkey (or chicken)
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 can cream of chicken soup
1. in medium sauce pan, bring one cup of water to boiling. add pepper, onion and uncooked rice. reduce to low heat and simmer until vegetables are tender and water is absorbed (approx. 20 minutes)
2. preheat oven to 350. in large bowl, combine stuffing mix and two cups of water. add in turkey, eggs, soup and cooked rice mixture (and this is where I added frozen peas and corn). spread into greased 9x13 baking dish.
3. bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes
4. Serve! I also shredded a little cheese and sprinkled it over top.
Bon Appetit!
