Slow Cooker Turkey and Wild Rice Casserole

(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 67)

I made this Slow Cooker Turkey and Wild Rice Casserole to use up what was left of our Thanksgiving turkey.

It was a big hit with my casserole-loving husband.

Creamy, crunchy, and satisfying, I thought it was good too.

It’s a good thing we both like it, because the recipe for this slow cooker turkey and wild casserole expanded into 10 generous cups!

The toasted sliced almonds add a nice bit of crunch. But, they are optional. I skipped them when Mac, who is allergic to nuts, joined us for dinner and we didn’t miss them a bit.

Next time I make this slow cooker turkey and wild casserole I’m going to experiment with cutting back on the rice and liquid to make a more manageable amount for our little family. I think individual portions of the leftovers could be successfully frozen too.

Enjoy!

    Loved this! I used chicken in mine since that’s what I already had in the freezer and it was delicious! The family wasn’t so keen on it, but I portioned out and froze the leftovers for quick lunches. Perfect!

      Glad you liked it Helen! It can be tricky to find recipes that make the entire family happy but glad it worked for you!! It can take some time and practice and patience to help others expand their healthy eating repertoire. My husband didn’t like salads when I first met him and now he LOVES them :-)
