Emeril’s Turkey Club Casserole: One-Dish of Delicious

Turkey Club Casserole

I read a plethora of magazines, cookbooks, newspaper articles, and blogs about food, so there has to be some way to keep tabs on what I hope to create in my next kitchen adventure.  For cookbooks or magazines, there is always a stack of post-it notes nearby to mark pages. Emeril’s new cookbook, Sizzling Skillets and Other One-Pot Wonders is flagged all over; each pot has a fantastic recipe waiting to fill it. On this occasion, it was the casserole dish doing its rotation with Turkey Club Casserole.

When reviewing the recipe, I immediately thought of Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner leftovers.  Many families prepare both turkey and ham during the holidays and this recipe incorporates both. Imagine the layers of a turkey club sandwich—bread, turkey, bacon, cheese, ham—layered in a deep dish, covered in an egg royale, and baked golden brown. The egg-soaked bread forms a crust over the oozing cheese and meats, reminiscent of the favorite lunchtime club sandwich, yet warm and satisfying.

We went one step further to make it gluten-free so our daughter could enjoy it too.  A good loaf of brown rice bread, sweet rice flour for the Béchamel sauce, gluten-free meats, and the recipe easily converted to a gluten-free meal.  One daughter who was absent from dinner, enjoyed the leftovers so much the next day, she came into the office to proclaim, “I don’t know what you made last night, but it was GOOD!”  I told her it was Emeril’s Turkey Club Casserole, which didn’t mean much to her, she just knew it was delicious.  Ah, music to our ears, the unsolicited delight of those we serve.

    Great that you were able to make it gluten free!

    This looks really good! We make a Reuben casserole, similar idea, so I think we’d love this. You really can’t beat one pot wonders, both for simplicity and taste :)

    This one looked so good–but I was a little scared off by what must be an off the charts calorie count! I bet it tastes amazing though!

    This looks like a great and simple recipe! I hadn’t even connected using the holiday meal leftovers. Such a great idea.

    Wow… This is kind of a mind-blowing concept to me. A baked sandwich casserole. I’m so intrigued! It seems like the perfect thing to prep in advance and serve to a crowd, perhaps for the holidays….

    What an amazing idea! I cant wait to get Emeril’s book… I need more one pot meals in my life, especially in my dishwasher-less apt :)

    I know some folks who might like this after Thanksgiving! Nice touch with the asparagus.

    This looks great! It’s so interesting to make sandwiches in a casserole! Love the idea of the egg soak… kind of like a Monte Cristo in a sense :)

    Wow, after seeing a pic of this, now I want to make it! I think I just read the title and thought, “eh… I think I’ll make something a little more interesting than a turkey club, but thanks anyway Emeril.” haha… Now that I see how it’s put together and how beautifully it presents on the plate – I love this idea! Thanks for making this one :-)

    Can the Turkey Club Casserole be made a day ahead

    • Judy November 3, 2011 at 1:31 pm #

      Hmm, the recipe indicates “up to” 2 hours for the egg-cream mixture be refrigerated once it is poured over the sandwiches. I think you could assemble the sandwiches the day before and then put the egg-cream mixture on the following day, following the rest of the recipe from there.
