I had this on my menu plan to use Chicken leftover from Tuesday but I never cooked that and had a bunch of turkey in the freezer that I wanted to use up. I’m sure chicken would work just as well.
The original came from Taste Of Home‘s Cookout/Potluck super Magazine, but you can find it on their website.
You will need:
- 2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
- 4 cups cubed cooked turkey
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1/3 cup butter, cubed
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1-3/4 cups milk
In a greased 2-qt. baking dish, layer the turkey, cheese and ham; set aside.
In a large saucepan, saute the onion in butter until tender. Stir in the flour, mustard and nutmeg until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Pour over ham.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
Yield: 6 servings.
COOKS NOTES: The original recipe includes a bread crumb topping, but everytime I make one, it stinks. I scraped all mine off–I just can’t seem to get it right. Also, the ham I had was thin sliced lunchmeat-style and so I just shredded it fine. If you use chunks, the original has you browning the ham first.
