Here we are, a few days after Thanksgiving and most of us probably have an overabundant supply of turkey leftovers.  Many of us are probably bored with eating our leftover turkey with gravy.

Well, we’ve discovered a way to avoid the monotony.

Say goodbye to boring turkey leftovers and hello to Giraffe’s Terrific Low-Carb Turkey Tetrazzini!

We’ve baked a delicious, rich and saucy turkey tetrazzini casserole, without using pasta. Instead, we’ve incorporated our Cheesy Smashed Cauliflower into yet, another recipe.

This recipe might take a little longer than our other recipes. However, it’s well worth the wait. My mother and husband agree, as this is one of their Post-Thanksgiving favorites.

Preparation time is about 15 minutes, while cooking time is roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes.

All that is needed for this recipe are the following ingredients:

  • 4 Cups of Shredded Left Over Turkey
  • 3 Cups of Chicken Broth
  • 3 Cups of Cheesy Smashed Cauliflower
  • 2 Cups of Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 Cups of Shredded Cheese of Choice
  • 1 2/3 Cup of Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/2 Cup of Almond Flour
  • 1 Stick of Butter or Margarine
  • 2 4 oz. Cans of Mushrooms

We begin by melting our stick of margarine on medium heat, in a large pot.

We’ll then add our Almond Flour and stir, until completely blended.

Next, we’ll add our Chicken Stock, Heavy Whipping Cream, and will bring to a boil.  We’ll continue stirring the mixture, so that our liquid does not curdle and burn.
As soon as the liquid begins to boil, we’ll add our 1 1/3 cups of Parmesan Cheese, stir, and will remove our pot from the heat.

We’ll then pour our turkey and Cheesy Smashed Cauliflower into our mixture and will stir.

Next, we’ll preheat our oven to 350F degrees and will spray our baking pan with cooking spray.

We’ll then pour our turkey mixture into a greased pan, add our mushrooms.and will stir.

Next, we’ll sprinkle the top of the casserole with 1/3 cup of Parmesan Cheese, 2 cups of Shredded Cheese, and will bake for 1 hour, or until slightly browned.

After the top has slightly browned we’ll remove our casserole from the oven and will allow to cool and thicken, for about 30 minutes.

Deeeelish!  Our dish tastes just like a turkey and rice casserole.  Enjoy your meal and hope to see you again next week!

Buon Appetito!
