Creamy Turkey & Noodles Recipe @pinch

Need to use up extra turkey? Try this creamy turkey and noodles recipe. Mary is right. This dish has so much wonderful flavor. The sauce is so creamy. Mixing a packet of gravy with cream cheese adds some tang and a savory flavor. Mixing in chopped bacon brings the dish over the top with its smoky taste. Next time, we are going to try Mary's fried onions suggestion. I needed a recipe for the leftover Thanksgiving turkey. After scouring dozens of recipes, I just didn't find anything that jumped out at me. So I made my own.The problem I usually run into is the turkey casseroles and dishes don't have a lot of flavor. The cream cheese and gravy mix, along with the bacon, give this a wonderfully creamy texture with lots of flavor!This is versatile... add veggies and use chicken instead of turkey. Throw in a greased casserole dish, top with canned French fried onions, and bake for extra crunch.My husband loved it!
