This is a great and easy chicken dish. It is a way to use up leftover chicken or turkey and it can be prepared beforehand. The cracker mixtures is what makes this dish so good. I have taken it to people for dinner several times and had lots of requests for the recipe.
A departure from typical leftover turkey dishes, this high-fiber burrito bake gives us our Tex-Mex fix without too much fat. You can also use a 10-tortilla package and reduce turkey by 1/2 cup to make 5 servings. I created this version as part of a high-fiber regimen to lower cholesterol.
A delicious breakfast treat I had at Parliament Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Niagara-on-the-Lake in Canada. Recipe is compliments of my hostess, Isabelle Parliamnent. The version I had was made with turkey.
An old poem about this fried bread says: Boxty on the griddle, boxty in the pan, if you can't make boxty, you'll never get a man. Serve with a tart apple sauce: or as part of an Ulster Fry, with fried bacon, fried sausage, fried eggs, fried black pudding, fried bread, fried soda bread. Best fried in baking drippings.
I have cut the bacon back in this recipe - it originally called for 4 oz. For the omelete I like to add 1 tsp flour, 2 tbsp cottage cheese or sour cream & 1/4 cup of milk to the eggs and beat well. The omelete is lighter. Another trick is make this the day after you have made oven fries, make extra fries and then chop them into 1/2" pieces and use instead of the boiled potato.
This is a very traditional Danish dish and one that merchant sailors love to make when they come off night watch and want a quick easy hot meal. It is so simple and very good. Great recipe for re-cycling left over roasts etc. Add some peas or some mushrooms, Any left over veggies. The egg is optional but don't miss out on it
Leftover turkey shines in this make-ahead curry. I often reduce the amount of curry powder as my family doesn't like it, but feel free to spice this how you please. I use fresh pineapple but it works well with the canned.
I call this "rescued", because so many people throw away the turkey carcass after a big meal. Don't! Rescue it! Making stock is not hard or complicated. You'll be rewarded with delicious soup, and an amazing aroma will fill your home as you make the stock. And you don't even have to make soup right away -- just freeze the stock!
I created this dish to use up the last 4 cups of leftover Christmas turkey I had on hand, and I think I have a winner! Substitute cooked chicken and chicken broth for the turkey if you wish, and the dish can be made vegetarian by using vegetable stock and substituting more veggies for the turkey. You could also make this dish kosher by using vegetable stock and substituting imitation crab for the turkey. Note: While the serving size states "10", expect this to serve 5 or 6 people at just one meal if you think everyone will go for seconds.
