Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
I know this is the day before Thanksgiving, and food has not even yet been consumed, BUT, I’m already thinking about leftovers. Due to this fact, I’ve been reading through the food blogs I follow looking for recipes and in the process I’ve found some that I thought I’d pass along for this week’s ‘Recipe of the Week’. Three from Real Mom Kitchen and one from Recipe Shoebox…I haven’t tried any of them (yet!), but they look so good I had to pass ’em on.
And from Recipe Shoebox, here’s one (it’s actually for chicken, but you could easily substitute turkey):
– Layered Chicken and Black Bean Enchilada Casserole
PLUS, here are some ideas from the top of my head–no recipes attached, but some foods Alex, Soph and I have made along with experiment ideas we’ll be trying with our left overs 😀
Fried Breakfast Mashed Potatoes – I actually make these a lot with leftover mashed potatoes…just add some butter and fry the potatoes like you would hashbrowns; ’til they’re nice and browned…mmmm
Turkey Tacos – I’d use a cheese like Monterrey Jack, or maybe Muenster.
Wild Rice & Turkey Soup – If you make a wild rice side like we do, you can use the leftovers, along with some turkey to make a creamy, delicious soup.
Turkey Enchiladas – just thought they sounded good. I think I might be craving Mexican Food….
Turkey Pizza – With a white sauce sauce and cheese, tomatoes and maybe fresh basil. Kind of like those chicken pizzas, but with turkey.
BBQ Turkey Sandwiches – I’m thinking pulled-pork style turkey sandwiches. This will use up leftover turkey and any rolls that might be hanging around as well.
And then, for all of us who where and are fans of "Friends", we can’t forget the famous Thanksgiving leftover ‘Moist Maker’ 😀 Check out this eHow article from Sharon Potter-Case for the recipe.
I hope you enjoy these recipes and ideas for recipes and we wish you all a super delicious, relaxing and fun, family Thanksgiving!
