Winner Dinner - Ground Turkey Haystack

I am always looking for 'winner dinners' as we like to call them at Chez Coffey.  A winner dinner must be quick and simple to make, and must be appreciated and enjoyed by the majority of the family.  I was googling what to do with ground turkey after I scored a bunch on sale at our local supermarket and came across the Haystack recipe.  Easy peasy and no complaints at all from my table of food critics.

(recipe from Sugar High)
Easy Haystack Dinner-
Recipe from my mother, slightly adapted
Serves 6-7, if your family is small definitely cut in half
Printable Recipe
4 cups water
2 cups rice
2 lbs. ground turkey, or beef
1 - 10¾ oz. can cream of mushroom soup - I used mushroom with roasted garlic soup
1 - 10¾ oz. can cream of celery soup
2 Tbsp. milk
2 cups (16 oz) cooked peas
Shredded cheese for topping
In a large pot combine water and rice; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until rice is tender.
Meanwhile, cook turkey in a large saucepan until thoroughly browned. Add both cans of soup and milk; stir until well combined and creamy. Cook until warm.
To serve Haystacks put some rice on a serving dish, top with meat mixture, then top with peas and finally top with shredded cheese. If your peas are warmed the cheese should melt over them, if not you can stick the plate in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
