What are you going to do with your thanksgiving leftovers? One of the chefs on TV this morning said he made a stew out of what was left over. The following is what I remember him putting in it.
Cut up turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, turkey gravy and then chicken broth.
Frankly, that does not sound good to me. How about every one else?
I'm going to make soup from the left over turkey, but it will have tomatoes, corn, peas and potatoes as added ingredients. That sounds more palatable to me. Oh, yes, I'll add some diced jalapenos just for spice.
Pie for breakfast!
Dressing burritos are my favorite! Always save the carcass for soup too.
I agree, Sherry, that stew sounds yuck. We visited in-laws who went non-trad with smoked brisket, collard greens, baked beans, and cornbread. I'll just gladly have more of the same today.
When i was a kid my mother would make a turkey pot pie , kind of, she used the turkey and made the pot pie innards, then made biscuits to go on top instead of a crust
We ate at our oldest girls house this year, so we don’t have the left overs to try to get rid of,
We had pork loin, smoked salmon, corn, green beans, baked potato, cranberry orange relish, apple pie and ice cream. The only things left over are the salmon, pork, pie and ice cream, oh and also home made bread following the no kneed recipe that was posted on the hangout. I think my wife finished the salmon for breakfast, or she'll have it for lunch. I'll have a pork sandwich with the home made bread for lunch, and the rest of the pork with eggs for breakfast. I nibble on the remainder of the cran/orange relish until it's gone, probably by Sunday. The apple pie and ice cream will be slowly gone through over the weekend. With only the 2 of us this year we did not over cook.
We don't do thanksgiving here, but at christmas I usually made a 3 to 5 bird roast, a bit like a turducken with layers of different stuffings between the meats. I absolutely love a slice of that fried till crispy the next day with some hash browns, fried egg and good old HP sauce.
When I would Cajun fry my Thanksgiving bird we would make Gumbo from the carcass. The injectable seasoning made the Gumbo delicious. But alas my frying days have been put aside the past few years. No fry zone.
Fwiw, I just apply the KISS principle.... same as any other left-overs.... eat 'em over the course of the next day or five. However, my wife sometimes freezes some of the stuff.
None. I think that's why I find the whole concept of "string chickens" so appealing.
Two of them plus a spud, some veg and a piece of an apple or pumpkin pie fills me to the brim.
For me and my wife I prepared a simple Thanksgiving dinner of ham, mashed potatoes, corn, and chocolate pudding with a dollop of Cool Whip. This morning I made ham biscuits.
Sandwiches and pot pies from the turkey.
Potato pancakes from the mashed potatoes.
Tarts from the sweet potatoes.
After reading this thread, burritos from the leftover dressing.
My wife makes the bestest turkey dinners this side of the moon. Punkin pie
Day two....the same as Thanksgiving Day with the left overs. Punkin pie
3rd day Turkey and gravy on butter bread. Punkin pie
4th day gravy on butter bread. Punkin pie
5th day....buttered bread....no pie
6th day balogna..no bread .....no pie

I try to get as many turkey sandwiches* as I can before the Mrs. gets it into her head to make a stew. Stewing removes all the flavour, imnsho. I also go for the drumsticks. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.
The s-i-l gets the carcass for soup.
Of course, the cat gets some, too.
* Bread (whatever's around), butter, turkey, cracked pepper.
who can't make a meal out of leftover mashed potatoes ,,dressing and deviled eggs?
Turkey Pot Pie sorta. Mix the leftover veggies in with chopped up turkey and a can of cream of chicken soup, and/or leftover turkey stock. Spread the leftover stuffing over the top. cover with foil and heat in the oven until hot. Remember, it's already cooked. But it becomes so happy happy!
