EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Ketchup can be used in place of the chili sauce for this delicious casserole.

When you cook a turkey, freeze leftovers to use in recipes. Cool the turkey completely, then package it in small measured amounts. Label and date the packages.

Serve this southern-inspired casserole with thick slices of whole-grain bread and lots of fresh fruit.
