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
