Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes

Ingredients

Casseroles

  • 25 pound turkey, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 pound Uncle Ben’s rice
  • 6 ounce diced pimentos
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1 quart milk
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1 pound loaf of bread, cut into small cubes

Gravy

  • 2 quarts chicken broth (it’s even better if you use some pan drippings as part of this)
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 2 cans of mushrooms
  • Kitchen bouquet to flavor, or use 1 tsp sage, onion powder and thyme. I used a little less sage than suggested because some people in my family don’t like the flavor it adds.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. 
  2. Mix all ingredients together and divide among 3 greased 9×13″ pans. 
  3. Bake for about an hour.
  4. Cut into squares and serve with the gravy on top.
  5. To make the gravy, mix the broth and starch together so you don’t get lumps.  Pour into a saucepan along with the mushrooms and seasonings.  Cook, stirring often until it is the consistency of gravy. 

Notes

This recipe was written using converted rice. To use standard long grain rice, tightly wrap the casserole dish with aluminum foil and add 10-15 minutes to the bake time.
