Here's a favorite recipe for using leftover turkey that's been in my repertoire since the 1959 issue of WOMEN'S DAY, where it first appeared: Cook the rice as usual.

Make a sauce with next 4 ingredients. Add mushrooms, parsley, onion, sage, and half the cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Stir in rice and turkey; season with salt and pepper to taste. Put in shallow baking dish, and sprinkle remaining cheese and paprika on top. Bake in 374-degree oven about 30 minutes.
