Turkey, Turkey Everywhere!
by Rochelle Griffin
It’s that time of year again when we are inundated with turkey post our Thanksgiving feast. If you are just as tired of turkey at this point as I am, you’ll find this article helpful. It’s one that I’ve had for years and therefore am unable to say where I got it. Memory as alluded me.
Many times I’ve used these suggestions to change up the way that I serve leftovers to keep the family happy.
Leftover Turkey sandwich recipes
Use generous slices of moist and juicy turkey breast. Try turkey in ciabatta rolls, baguettes, between thick slices of warmed wholemeal bread, or sandwiched in toast. Pair the meat with other ingredients, such as:
- shredded salad leaves
- thinly sliced avocado or onion
- tomatoes and cucumber
- fine slices of cooked ham
- crumbled crispy bacon
- sliced hardboiled egg
- sliced blue cheese
- Add extra flavor with mustard, cranberry sauce, leftover turkey stuffing, pickles, mayonnaise, sliced gherkins, or radishes.
Leftover Turkey Hot dishes
- Turkey pasta Mix diced turkey into a rich tomato sauce and serve with rice or pasta.
- Curried turkey Turkey makes a great curry Serve with rice and naan bread.
- Tarragon turkey Add cubed turkey to a white sauce made with semi-skimmed milk. Flavor with tarragon, add sweetcorn and mushrooms. Put in a pie dish, top with pastry and bake. For an even easier version, top with mashed potatoes and brown in the oven.
- Leafy stir-fry Add shredded turkey to stir fries, made with shredded Chinese leaves, onions and other vegetables, and served with noodles.
- Chinese turkey Cook diced turkey with onion, baby corn and bean sprouts. Coat with sweet/sour sauce made from orange juice, soy sauce and a little honey, thickened with corn flour.
- Turkey hash This dish is a great standby. Saute chopped onions and peppers, add diced turkey and cook through. Make hollows in mixture, break an egg into each one and cook under hot grill or bake in oven until set. Serve with crusty bread and a tomato salad.
- Turkey soup Make a batch of warming turkey soup.
