This easy turkey divan casserole is a snap to prepare and bake. All you need is leftover turkey, cooked broccoli, a little Parmesan cheese, and the simple homemade cheese sauce.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6 hours

Total Time: 6 hours, 10 minutes


  • 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


Melt butter in a 1- to 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute. Remove from the heat. 

In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolk with the milk. Gradually blend the milk mixture into the flour and butter mixture. Return to the heat. Add dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and begins to boil. Add Cheddar cheese and cook, stirring, until cheese is melted.

Arrange hot broccoli pieces and turkey in 2-quart baking dish. Spoon  the sauce between layers and over the top. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Broil the casserole (about 500° F) about 4 inches from heat until cheese is browned, about 3 to 4 minutes.

Serves 6.

A Delicious Turkey Classis, Member TheManMike

This recipe is really easy and the sauce is light and fluffy and blends the flavor's of that boring turkey and broccoli superbly. You could even and cauliflower too, to make it even more interesting. Just remember , KEEP stirring at a medium heat until all the ingredients have blended....takes just 3-4 minutes. Really good!! Not need to give that left over turkey to the dogs anymore!
