This casserole! When I first made it, I had three requirements.

  1. Quick and easy!
  2. Yummy (a/k/a cheesy)
  3. Low carb

When I first tasted it, I thought three things.

  1. This doesn’t taste like turkey.
  2. This definitely doesn’t taste low carb.
  3. Oh my goodness, YUM, I need more!

This Keto Leftover Turkey “Noodle” Casserole will forevermore be a holiday (day-after) leftover tradition in our house. FYI, the “noodles” are angel hair cabbage, but you’ll never know it. Cabbage is low-calorie and rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

      Sure! I divided mine into individual meal prep bowls and froze them. Then I just took them out individually in the morning when I wanted one for lunch and let them thaw in the fridge.
