The Inevitable Post About Turkey Leftovers..
The white meat and dark meat of the turkey were separated into two containers.. I normally would have boiled bones for stock- but didn't this time, I was too whipped! Monday night was an easy one...it's what we lovingly call a "Truck Driver Special" Sliced dark turkey(you can use beef or pork too!) simmered in leftover gravy, and placed on either toasted slices of bread, or mashed potatoes.. Simple straight-forward, and hearty! Tuesday I made a dish I hadn't in a while- Turkey Tetrazzini! Egg noodles cooked per directions, laid in a casserole dish.. Sauteed sliced mushrooms(in a half a stick of butter!), add sour cream and chopped cooked white meat from turkey. Season with your favorites- I used crushed garlic, minced onion, and Italian seasonings.. Pour over noodles, and cover with a layer of grated Parmesan cheese. Put uncovered casserole into 325F oven, heat through until cheese is bubbly-1/2 hour is plenty- and you have a rich, filling meal, from leftvers!
Tonight will be a chef's salad, utilizing yet more turkey...
