Turkey Tetrazzini is the perfect Thanksgiving leftovers recipe. For many, it’s almost as much of a tradition as the actual Thanksgiving meal. I like it because no matter how you slice it, turkey dries out so this creamy noodle dish is a great solution.
The ingredients are likely things you already have in the pantry and fridge so no need to run to the store.
1 (12 ounce) package uncooked egg noodles
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups milk
1 2/3 cups grated Parmesan cheese
4 cups chopped cooked turkey
1/4 ounce breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking dish.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add noodles, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, and place in the prepared baking dish.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour. Mix in chicken broth and milk. Cook and stir continuously until the mixture comes to a boil. Stir in 1 1/3 cups Parmesan cheese, and remove from heat.
Mix chicken broth mixture and turkey with noodles. Top with remaining cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until surface is lightly browned.
