I am a Good Cook Kitchen Expert and received kitchen tools to aid in the preparation of this recipe. As always, all opinions are my own.

It’s hard to think that the year is quickly coming to close. I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends and that you have plenty of leftover turkey because I’ve got a couple of quick and easy leftover turkey recipes to share with you over the next few days.

As a Good Cook Kitchen Expert I was asked to come up with a recipe using leftovers from Thanksgiving. My recipe is number 36, and is one of 101 Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes on the Good Cook Blog.

Leftover French Onion Turkey Bake
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
An easy & tasty way to use up leftover turkey
Serves: 8
  • 1 can (10.5 oz) French Onion Soup (I used Campbell's)
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1 cup Swiss Cheese, shredded
  • 8 slices thick white bread
  • 2 cups cooked turkey, cubed
  • 8 sliced bacon, cooked
Please Note: I used 2 Good Cook 9-inch Premium Nonstick Pie Pans for this recipe but if you prefer, it should fit in a 9x13 casserole dish.
  1. Beat eggs in a large bowl; add french onion soup, milk and ½ cup shredded swiss cheese and combine with a whisk or fork. Add cubed bread and turkey. Press the bread cubes into the mixture making sure each piece of bread is thoroughly coated. Pour evenly into the two 9-inch pie pans. Sprinkle ¼ cup cheese on top of each one and let stand for 10-15 minutes. While you are waiting, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the eggs are firmly set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

My family raved about this recipe and that always makes me a happy mom! We ate it for lunch, but I think it could be served for any meal.

    I use onion soup mix on my pot roast and I bet it is good with turkey, too. I just got a small turkey breast this year (also baked a ham), so I don’t have leftover turkey. 🙁
