My favorite comfort food on a cold day. It makes your house smell amazing! It makes a huge batch, however can be 1/2ed or doubled easily depending on your groups size. You can used leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken too, great way to use up leftover meats and veggies. I serve this with my Loaded Foccacia Bread and everyone's happy! I made the seasoning amounts a little vague because you should taste the soup as you season so it works according to your tastes.
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!
This is a recipe that I found in a magazine. It is from Betty Jean Nichols of Eugene, Oregon. It is a fabulous recipe for leftover turkey and mashed potatoes. Perfect for the days after the holidays, a savory meal on a cold night. The best turkey chowder that I have made!
A good use for turkey leftovers--I've made this after Thanksgiving for decades. Amounts are approximate estimates. Nowadays I often cut the butter to 1 Tbs or just use nonstick cooking spray in place of butter.
This is a great way to use leftover cooked turkey or chicken. It's also an easy one dish casserole that everyone in the family enjoys. The recipe started life as a Cooking Light recipe in a recent issue. I made modifications to suit our taste.
This is a tasty, simple and convenient way to use leftover turkey and/or leftover rice, and a great casserole to take to a potluck.
Note: Edited on 1/1/08 to reduce milk in ingredient list from 1 3/4 to 1 1/4 cups. I actually just fill a soup can with milk, but the ingredient list requires a measurement, and I took a guess.
This sandwich is a popular Panera Bread sandwich. It has a great spicy dressing and is served on their fabulous tomato basil bread, but it's also delicious on any hearty bread. My son works for Panera Bread and this is his favorite menu item. This recipe is typical of a California style gourmet sandwich, and represents the Western U.S. region.
This is a very simple recipe, and tastes delicious. I just whipped it up with ingredients on hand, and wanted to record it to refer to next time. It's great for the South Beach diet, too. I used left over turkey breast (my standby - Herbed Turkey Breast by Kate in Ontario #22235). Note to World Tour participants - California is a large producer of walnuts. This recipe represent that state.
I love havarti (and bacon and turkey!) and this is an excellent sandwich. If you can't find havarti, muenster can be substituted. I also use the precooked bacon, heated up in the microwave according to package directions. The sandwich can be made ahead. Chilling time is not included in the prep or cook time. The recipe is adapted from a magazine.
