Hot Turkey Salad

This is an actual recipe card from my mother (as opposed to “You remember me making this all the time” or scrawled in the back of my Joy of Cooking for Boys and Girls). This also is a recipe that I remember as getting rave reviews whenever my mother took it to a church potluck, ladies luncheon, etc. Interestingly, she often bought deli turkey for this or a “turkey loaf” from the freezer section. All the better to cube apparently.  It is good cold as well as hot. (Skip the grated cheese and potato chips)

Hot Turkey Salad

2 cups cubed turkey
1 cup celery
1/2 cup ground nuts (Mama used pecans)
2 T lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
about 1 t. grated onion
mayonnaise to moisten

Place in individual servers (custard cups–but you can do the whole batch in one casserole dish if making for a potluck) Crumble potato chips and a few nuts on top. Top with grated sharp cheese. Place in 350 oven about 10-15 min till cheese melts and dishes are hot through.
