SCRATCH: Thanksgiving Leftovers

Yeah, I know.  That’s all we need.  Another post/blog/article on what to do with those thanksgiving leftovers.  But let’s face it people, how about making something a little different?  You know, other than turkey soup or open faced turkey sandwiches.  So I posted on my Facebook wall “What can I make tonight with the turkey?” or something along those lines.  Because I knew there would be some people that would absolutely pull one out for me.  Check it out:

Nancy in Southern California suggested Turkey Hash.  She has a recipe that calls for apples, potatoes and chicken.  She told me to use the turkey instead.

Susi in New Jersey suggested Turkey Mushroom Tetrazzini.  It seems like a pasta/casserole type of dish that is mad easy to make.  Love it.

My local people had some good suggestions too:

Tina suggested a cranberry turkey stuffing bake.  That actually sounds pretty amazing.  However I don’t think the boyfriend will go for it.  If I omit the cranberries I might.

Doug, who is an IT pro like myself suggested a stew of turkey and dumplings.  This one I’m absolutely going to do.  Eat some then freeze some.

Mom Mancini suggested Turkey Meatloaf.  That one is an inside joke.  Thanks, Mom 🙂

Sarah suggested turkey pot pie.  I have some pie crusts, but I would probably do a Shepard’s pie first.

And then there’s the other leftovers, such as the stuffing and the smashed taters.  I will probably use the stuffing for the dumplings recipe like Doug suggested.  I also saw some cool little muffin things I can do with the taters.  If I can freeze them when I am done, I will do that.

So who wins?  Susi!  I’m making that dish that she suggested.  Something totally different that I would think of doing with thanksgiving leftovers.  And, it’s lightened up!

So, what do you do with all those thanksgiving leftovers?  ::C
