Substitution
We like the combination of the two rices, but you can make it with all brown rice or all wild rice, if you prefer.
Variation
You can use cooked chicken instead of the turkey, if you like.
Do-Ahead
It's easy to make this casserole up to 8 hours in advance, simply cover and refrigerate without the topping. Then, sprinkle with the bread crumb mixture just before baking.
