Low Carb Cheesy Turkey and Rice Casserole

Keto Cheesy Turkey Rice Casserole

It’s that time of year again when you find yourself thinking what am I going to do with all this leftover food!?! But I can help! Instead of making soup, why not dress up your leftover Thanksgiving turkey and turn it into this easy turkey rice casserole!?!

It’s super tasty and a great way to use cooked turkey just hanging out in the fridge

This Turkey Rice Casserole is the perfect way to use up your leftover turkey after Thanksgiving or Christmas. This dish only takes a few minutes to put together and it’s creamy, hearty, and filling. This leftover Thanksgiving casserole is a real crowd-pleaser.

This leftover turkey casserole is filled with turkey (of course!), cauliflower rice, and tons of other delicious flavors.

It’s a great opportunity to use up extra ingredients that you didn’t end up needing for the holiday feast. And you can always make substitutions based on what you have. I used broccoli, but other veggies would be great too!

Casseroles of this kind, often use condensed soups….. This casserole has its own velvety sauce that is made from scratch!

It works perfectly for creating that mild, creamy texture for which casseroles are known. Creamy. Yummy. Nothing from a can. Win/Win for my family, and our low carb lifestyle.

While this casserole is wonderful for Thanksgiving, turkey leftovers… Any type of cooked chopped meat would be delicious here.
