The Skinny on Slow Cooker Turkey & Wild Rice Casserole
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!
