GOODe GOODeNESS: Herbed Turkey and Rice Pilaf

Herbed Turkey and Rice Pilaf is one of my newest faves from FREEZE-o-RAMA.

I have adapted a recipe I found in one of my -- you guessed it-- Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks, Best Casseroles to be exact.

Come to think of it, when choosing a book for my Goode & Gooseberry Project, if I had chosen Best Casseroles, my job would be 1/2 done! I have cooked many a recipe in this book ;)

Psst... Did ya see Gooseberry Patch's blog post about our lil' ole project? Big thanks for their support :)

BTW-- if you haven't voted yet, the voting ends at 9 pm on Wednesday for which cookbook I will be a cooking through :)

Now, back to our regular scheduled recipe:

When looking for recipes that I could adapt for my Tina Turkey, I found this and thought I could make some alterations to make the recipe a little quicker and perfect for my freezer.

I started with 1 cup of a good quality whole grain rice pilaf. Personally, I don't care for plain old brown rice (unless it is at PF Changs), so I opted for this awesome pilaf.

Add 1 1/4 Cups Water

2 Cans Cream of Chicken Soup

1 Envelope of Onion Soup Mix

Add 1 tsp "shire" sauce, 1 tsp thyme

Mix 'er up and toss in 3-4 Cups Chopped Turkey (cooked)

Freeze it up or bake it up at 350 degrees for 45-60 minutes until rice is tender.


Delicious and healthy and Miss Add approves--Mommy score!

Looks very good indeed! Thanks for your comment today! Casseroles and dish scrapers complement one another well, though I'd prefer the cooking and eating to the clean up... =)

Yummy! Thanks for sharing!
You've inspired me to take a smoked turkey out of the freezer and make it for dinner tonight . Yum!
Have a wonderful day :)

Looks simple and yummy - that's a doubel mommy score! :)
