Soon enough, chances are we will all be in the same boat. Surrounded by lots of leftover turkey and ham– wondering what to do with it. Sure, you could just heat it up the first time and repeat the holiday meal, but that gets old quick. I know for us, I buy a 17 lb turkey so we have lots, and lots of leftovers.
That leaves me in a position to get very creative in the kitchen.
We have the obligatory turkey sliders, the turkey casserole, and the turkey salad. If you are sick of the same old leftovers, you must scroll down for my Leftover Ham & Turkey Cheesy Rice Casserole.
This recipe is cheesy, has lots of creamy cheese flavor, and did I mention is is cheesy? Can you all tell we love cheese here? In all seriousness, this casserole reminds of broccoli cheddar soup but in an even better form.
Of course, if you do not have both turkey and ham leftovers, this recipe can easily substitute for either or. I used extra deli meats I had but plan on recreating this with the real deal after Thanksgiving.

Ham & Turkey Cheesy Rice Casserole Recipe
- 1 lb of leftover, fully cooked ham or turkey. *You can also use deli ham or turkey
- 1 package of Knorr® Selects White Cheddar Broccoli, and Four Cheese Risotto
- 2 cans of cheddar soup
- 2 cups of milk (rice prep)
- 3 cups of water (rice prep)
- 1 cup of shredded cheddar
- 2 cups of broccoli florets
- 1 small sweet onion diced
- 2 tablespoons of butter
Prepare both rice packages using the water & milk (follow cooking directions, but you will be making them both in the same pan). I also subbed the olive oil for 2 tablespoons of butter.
Once rice is prepped, pour into a casserole dish
Add broccoli and chopped onion, and mix in.
Add cheddar soup and mix in.
Add meats and mix in.
Top with shredded cheddar mixture.
Bake for 25 minutes at 350.
