Curried Turkey Casserole

A member on kidney connect asked for more casserole recipes, here is one we modified from a martha stewart recipe. Let us know what you think!


  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons canola or olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 2 cups no salt added chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • ground pepper
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup chopped pepper (yellow, green or red)
  • 4 cups cooked turkey, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 3 cups white bread, diced medium


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium pot, melt 1/4 cup canola oil 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 and chicken broth, whisking constantly until mixture is smooth. Cook, stirring frequently, until sauce comes to a simmer. Stir in curry powder and season to taste with pepper. Add broccoli and sweet pepper 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 canola oil until coated. Top turkey mixture with bread and bake until sauce is bubbling and bread is golden brown, about 15 minutes.
