Curried Turkey Casserole

Source: Everyday Food, November 2010


  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups whole milk, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 6 1/2 cups broccoli florets (from 1 bunch)
  • 4 cups cooked turkey, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 3 cups day-old bread, diced medium


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium pot, melt 1/4 cup butter over medium. Add onion and garlic; cook until slightly softened but not browned, about 7 minutes. Whisk in flour and continue to whisk 1 minute. Slowly add milk, whisking constantly until mixture is smooth. Cook, stirring frequently, until sauce comes to a simmer. Stir in curry powder and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add broccoli and cook just until beginning to soften, 5 minutes. Stir in cooked turkey. Transfer mixture to an 8-inch square baking dish.

  2. In a small bowl, toss bread with remaining 2 tablespoons butter, melted, until coated. Top turkey mixture with bread and bake until sauce is bubbling and bread is golden brown, about 15 minutes.

    Loved this! Easy and smells great while baking. Buttering the bread topping gives a nice crunchy texture on top of the casserole.

    This was excellent!! If you love turkey pot pie, this is a great quick alternative. I used ground turkey cooked w/oil, salt, pepper, vegeta and curry powder. Next time I might blanch the broccoli before adding it to the cream sauce because it took a while to cook but other than that, this is a stellar recipe.
