THANKSGIVING DINNER - Use That Leftover Turkey!




Yes, the recipe says Chicken but it's perfect for your leftover TURKEY! I know what your fridge will look like on Friday morning - just like mine, full of dishes covered in foil, Tupperware containers loaded with leftovers. The biggest leftover in there will be that bird carcass - just sitting there waiting to be turned into sandwiches, soups and other dishes before it dries out completely!

I have to admit that my favorite part of turkey leftovers is making turkey sandwiches - loaded with Mayo to combat the dryness of a roasted gobbler! BUT. . . . another great way to create a great dish is to make a pot pie! You have all the ingredients already - poultry, potatoes and maybe even leftover veggies!

Obviously you can skip the steps for cooking the turkey and the potatoes. Just cube them up, jump to the steps where you cook the broccoli and carrots (unless you have some leftovers of those too) then start at the place where you saute the onions and go from there. You can even take some of the turkey skin and a bone or two and make your own turkey broth!

The sherry sauce gives your turkey a whole new flavor dimension and pot pies are perfect fall food, hearty and hot! Serve it up with your leftover jello salad and rolls!
