Scalloped Turkey Recipe from the 1800s.
Got leftovers? This is a spinoff of the turkey pie you would make with mashed potatoes. Instead of potatoes, layer a dish with breadcrumbs, a little milk, turkey, dressing, butter, and gravy. The final layer is a mixture of 2 eggs, milk, melted butter, and cracker crumbs in a thick, spreadable paste on top.
Note the use of a plate to cover the dish while the dish is baking . A pre-tinfoil solution to prevent burning. Genius.
