Thanksgiving and any of the winter holiday celebrations that follow always means there’s going to be turkey on the table. And that means Thanksgiving leftover ideas. Here are a few of my favorites to change up how you serve your turkey leftovers!
After a few days of turkey sandwiches and platters, you start thinking of other ways of transforming those leftovers into something not quite as recognizable….sigh.
Two of my favorite ways to use up leftover turkey or chicken are pot pies because I love Pot Pies! It’s a comfort food that I remember from my childhood and the perfect meal for a fall or winter night. This year I added a new twist to my Pot Pies making them Gluten Free, and you know you couldn’t tell the difference. So far being Gluten Free hasn’t been too hard and I really feel better!
While I love Pot Pies, Lisa’s favorite leftover creation has to be turkey croquettes and she looks forward to them every time I put a turkey in the oven! If you’ve never had a croquette before, it really is a blast from the past and something you’d find on every diner menu in the tri-state area. Good diner food can be a thing of beauty!
For this rendition of a diner classic, I changed up the recipe and made them even easier than ever to make using leftover stuffing, a little gravy and chopped turkey. Talk about quick and delicious!
My favorite sandwich of all times is what they used to call a Bobbie in the Delaware area, aka The Gobbler around the country. But whatever you call it, call it delicious! Turkey, stuffing, coleslaw and cranberry sauce on your favorite toasted bread….sigh.
