Leftovers, ME News, Vol. 1, Issue 40
Well, thanks to my sister-in-law, I’m still celebrating Thanksgiving 2008. I got off way easy this year. My assignments were devilled eggs and fruit salad. The whole meal included turkey breast, smoked turkey breast, stuffing/dressing (depends on who you ask what it’s actually called), mashed potatoes, cranberries, devilled eggs, fruit salad, pumpkin pie, and oriental cabbage salad. (Hey, we’re not all traditionalists!)
Here’s the best leftover turkey recipe ever:
Amy’s Turkey Casserole
One large casserole dish layered with:
½ of the leftover mashed potatoes, turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, green bean casserole, rest of the leftover potatoes.
Cover with foil. Refrigerate until needed. Reheat in 350 degree oven until hot (about ½ hour). Maybe add some shredded cheese on top (that’s my idea!)
Make this casserole right at the table before you put anything away. Cuts way down on searching for storage containers, trying to jam them all into the fridge, and then having to clean them all out later. Best of all you get to re-live your complete Thanksgiving dinner a day later, with only one dish to clean up!
Or, in my case, you may still be enjoying it almost a week later. I think tomorrow night I might see the last of the turkey casserole that came home with me on turkey day. Such sadness.
