This easy turkey divan casserole is a snap to prepare and to bake. All you need is leftover turkey (or any cooked turkey—you don't have to make it yourself!), cooked broccoli, a little Parmesan cheese, and a simple homemade cheese sauce.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen broccoli spears, cooked and drained
  • Sliced cooked turkey, about 1 pound, enough for 6 servings
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a 1- to 2-quart saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add flour and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Remove from the heat. 
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with the milk. 
  4. Gradually blend the milk mixture into the flour and butter mixture.
  5. Return to the heat. Add dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and begins to boil.
  6. Add cheddar cheese and cook, stirring, until cheese is melted.
  7. Arrange hot broccoli pieces and turkey in layers in a 2-quart baking dish.
  8. Spoon the cheese sauce between layers and over the top.
  9. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  10. Broil the casserole (about 500 F) about 4 inches from heat until cheese is browned, about 3 to 4 minutes.
