Smoked Turkey Breast Noodle Casserole
Smoked Turkey Breast Noodle Casserole - The Fall Season has finally arrived here in Northern California albeit a wee late ... The 90º to 100º weather we've been experiencing in the last few weeks has finally given way to mid 70º to low 80º weather. We all enjoy an Indian Summer but I've been ready for a long time to start enjoying the cooler weather that Fall offers.Time to start dusting off those sweats and cooking some good old fashioned comfort food.
I was searching on the internet for a way to use a leftover smoked turkey breast, from a previous turkey cook, in a casserole when I came upon a recipe at Campbell's Kitchen for a turkey noodle casserole. The posted casserole turned out to be similar to a classic tuna noodle casserole but uses turkey instead. Perfect foundation for my casserole. Took the basic concept of the recipe and added my personal touches to reflect my preferences and taste. I think you'll enjoy the resulting smoked turkey breast noodle casserole recipe.
- 4 cups smoked turkey breast, cubed
- 8 ounces medium egg noodles, cooked and drained
- 2 cans (10½ oz each) condensed cream of chicken soup

So glad I found this recipe and not the basic one! Your enhancements were great, very classic comfort food. Family loved it.
Thank you. I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe. I really love comfort food and like to incorporate a lot of my meat leftovers to enhance basic recipes.
I made this last night. Not alot of recipes for smoked turkey. This was deliscious.
Glad you enjoyed the recipe
How many people does this recipe serve?
Depending on what you serve with this Smokey Turkey Breast Noodle Casserole of mine from six years ago, I believe you should easily serve 6 to 8 people. I have a large appetite and I love comfort food so six people for me. Maybe a nice green salad as a side and some dinner or crescent rolls. I just vacuumed sealed a couple of smoked turkey breasts from a couple of days ago and since I have all the ingredients I believe I’ll make myself this casserole again. If you cook this recipe, let me know how it turned out for you. Enjoy …
You might also search on Turkey Tetrazzini and or Turkey Noodle Soup. Both are a great way to use leftover smoked turkey. Don’t forget that these recipes also work well with rotisserie chickens.
