Turkey and Stuffing Casserole

This is a fun casserole using stuffing as a "crust" and then filling with cubed turkey or chicken.

1/2 cup butter
1 1/4 cup boiling water
3 1/2 cups seasoned stuffing mix
1 - 2.8 can french fried onions
1 can cream of celery soup
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups cooked turkey, cubed
1 - 10 ounce package frozen peas, thawed

Mix the butter and water and stir until butter melts. Pour the water over the stuffing mix and toss lightly to coat. Stir in half of the onions.

Spoon the stuffing into a 9 inch baking dish. Press the stuffing up the sides to form a "crust."

In a bowl, combine the milk, soup, turkey and peas. Pour into the baking dish, on top of the crust. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Top with remaining onions and cook 5 minutes longer.

Note: Try other soups such as cream of mushroom or cream of asparagus. You can also use mixed vegetables instead of peas.
