KATHY'S HOME & GARDEN TIPS - NOW THAT THANKSGIVING IS OVER

Kathleen Weaver Zech - Dean's Team Director of Buyers Agency Services

YUMMY THANKSGIVING LEFTOVER RECIPES!

You've probably had about as much turkey as you can handle, right?!  Today, I wanted to share a couple creative ways to use those leftovers to make yummy recipes that will "hide" the traditional leftover fare.

Turkey Shepherd's pie

Brown one half cup each chopped carrots, celery and onion until soft.

Add one teaspoon dried thyme.

Add two cups chopped cooked turkey

Cover with two cups low sodium chicken broth

Cook ten minutes on medium high until liquid reduces slightly

Pour mixture into 8x8 casserole

Drop small spoonfuls leftover mashed potatoes to make a solid layer on top of the turkey mixture.

Bake in a pre-heated 400 degree oven 20 minutes until filling is bubbly and potatoes are golden.

Cheesy Potato Patties

Combine three cups mashed potatoes with two cups shredded cheddar cheese

Add milk a little at a time until mixture is workable.

Salt and Pepper to taste.

Melt two tablespoons butter in a large skillet, add two tablespoons oil (canola or whatever general purpose oil you have on hand).

Form patties and fry until brown on both sides over medium high heat.

Turkey Chili

Sauté one half cup chopped onion and green pepper along with one chopped and seeded jalapeno (leave in the seeds if you like it hot!). When  veggies are soft add one tablespoon each chili powder and cumin.

Add two cans chicken stock and one can chopped tomatoes ( all 15oz)

Add two cups each chopped cooked turkey and whole kernel corn.

Simmer 15 minutes so flavors can meld

Check seasonings add salt and Tabasco to taste.

BON APPETIT!

GOT A SPECIAL LEFTOVER RECIPE YOU WANT TO SHARE?  Let me know.
