This is my adopted recipe, I haven't made it yet.
All the flavors of the South baked into one casserole. If you don't like asparagus, you can substitute 2(10oz) pkg. Frozen broccoli spears, cooked, drained and chopped. Cook time includes cooking the rice.
This is my adaptation of a recipe that appeared in Woman's Day magazine in 1986. It is my favourite way to use up leftover roast turkey but can be used with what ever meat you happen to have on hand. The original recipe suggested lunch meat and ham or sausage should also work. My family enjoys this and like many other fried rice recipes it can be adapted or tweaked in many ways to suit your own personal taste or whatever you have on hand. If you like your foods spicy, sprinkle in some dried crushed chilis while preparing the veggies or rice. I add the soy sauce the way the original recipe called for but you could leave it out and allow folks to season it to their own tastes at the table. You could use prepackaged coleslaw veggies to speed up preparation for this. Other crisp veggies such as broccoli, pepper strips, bok choy, and peas (in pods or not) could be added. Use your imagination! Just make sure that you have between 4 and 5 cups of veggies if you want to have your 4 serving yield.
The BEST WAY to serve leftover mashed potatoes. We always make sure we have leftover potatoes at our house. These are sure to be a hit with your picky eaters. Really easy to vary ingredients with this dish.
I found this recipe in a magazine years ago and lost it! I just found it again on the Fleischmann's website! It's delicious! The bread part could probably be adapted to a bread machine, although I have not tried to yet. Please let me know if you do!
Another way to use up some of that left over turkey. A bit of work cooking the mushrooms, onions and noodles, but it comes together quickly when that is done. Economical and tasty. Can also be assembled to the baking stage and refrigerated up to 6 hours before cooking.
This is an old Dutch recipe. Options have been noted for making it lighter in fat and calories. The flavor doesn't change much when making it lower fat. Nutmeg is very common in Dutch cooking. It's used to flavor vegetables and meats. You might use it lightly until you are used to the taste in this type of dish. We love it. Maggi aroma (dark liquid in a small bottle)is found in the ethnic foods isle in my supermarket. It could also be found near the gravy seasonings or condiments. If you can't find it at all, try a little soy sauce or Worcestershire, although the taste will be somewhat different.
This could be THE best way to use up leftover turkey. Comfort food at its best - what could be better on a cold January day than a steaming bowl of creamy, delicious soup!! This recipe comes from the 2005 Kraft Kitchens Calendar.
