Leftover Turkey Suggestions

Thanks Sylvia!

I checked out "Julia and Jaques Cooking at Home" DVD series from the library.

You should see what they do with a turkey!

Abbreviated version, cut the legs off, cut the wishbone out of the breast, cut the wing tips off, stuff the legs with corn bread stuffing and seal with aluminum foil, stick the turkey breast on top of the stuffing, add the legs, roast at 330 degrees for an hour, add veggies, roast another hour and carve. Meantime they make giblet gravey with potato starch, mashed potatos, sweet potatoes, creamed onions.

Everything was gluten free with the possible exception of their corn bread, which is an easy remedy.

2 1/2 weeks until the holiday, Ho Ho Ho.

I never have had a problem with ham, but I check the labels.

I think a lot of people buy huge turkeys because the price per pound is lower. But if you throw away half of the meat and all of the bones you are really paying much more than double what you thought you paid. I think it's better to buy a bird of the size you can/will eat.

As for what to do with it, you can always chop it up and mix it with chopped onions (50/50 turkey to onions) and mayonnaise and season it as you like. For example, you can put in some Thai chili, garlic, ginger, peanut butter and lime to give it a Thai-ish flavor. Or you can just use Tarragon if you like milder flavors. Put a big plop of it in the middle of a big salad, use olive oil instead of packaged salad dressings, and you will have a tasty and relatively healthy meal.

That sounds good, thanks!

Turkey enchiladas, turkey soup (like chicken soup, but with turkey), and turkey sushi! (No, not raw. :) )

Sorry...a bit late...but here is my Turkey Leftover (or any other) meat Enchiladas

Creamy Garlic Enchiladas

  • Corn Tortillas - Rice work too, but corn are better
  • Grated Jack Cheese - about a pound for a single pan
  • Any meat -- Turkey, Chicken, Pork -- leftovers work great. You can also use shirmp, crab.
  • Sauce
  • Diced Tomato and Green Onion for garnish on top

Yesterday I used an inexpensive pork roast -- had pork roast for dinner on Friday and just cooked extra meat then.

In blender:

1 and 1/2 Cup Cream

4 or 5 Cloves Garlic

Handful Fresh Cilantro

1/4 Cup Green Salsa (any brand)

1/4 Cup Sugar

Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper

Blend until well mixed - careful not to go too long or you'll have whipped cream - if it does thicken a bit too much just add a bit of water to thin. Thick is fine, just don't want "whip cream peaks" -- it should still laddle or pour.

Assemble in rectangular baking dish -- I use three different sizes depending on the crowd coming. If this is the main entree I make 2-3 per person -- if it is a side dish 1-2 per person. I live with my hubby and two teen/young adult men -- I make 4 each for them so there'll will be a few leftover. My Mom and Sister generally eat 2 each.

  • In front of you is a rectangular pan, a bowl of grated cheese and a bowl of meat and the sauce
  • Heat the tortillas in a plastic bag in the microwave OR steam them in a covered sauce pot on the stove.
  • Pour or laddle enough sauce to lightly cover the pan then start rolling
  • One tortilla...small amount of meat along with a small amount of cheese - Roll as tight as possible..can be frustrating, but easy to learn -- keep rolling until the last enchilada holds them all in place.
  • Pour sauce over the tortillas -- you don't use it all...I pour or laddle along the center - leaving the ends kinda dry
  • Cover with more grated cheese
  • Sprinkle with diced tomato, green onion and black pepper

Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 -- these can be made up to a day ahead and then baked when ready. If they've been in the frig you may need more baking time -- they should be kinda bubbly and just starting to tan.

Awesome!

Yeah, it was a long time ago, so I don't remember the details. Some of the leftovers sushi was really quite good (turkey and avocado, iirc), but some of it was just... well, not "bad", but not anything you'd want to bother with making again. :P

I go for the straight up pig on a bone just like my grammy always made. That's it, someone took a pig, killed it, cut off it's leg and turned it into a ham. BAM! Christmas dinner. Zero gluten worries there, not that I don't read the package but it's pretty hard to screw up pig in plastic.

We raised pigs (for our own consumption only!) when I was a kid. Man, I am glad I don't do that anymore! But if you live in or near the country there are probably butchers around who will butcher a hog and take a percentage of it instead of money - then they sell the meat. It's one way to get unprocessed pork (beef, too) and at a good price if you buy a lot at once and freeze it. I think many of the smaller outfits can even give you "provenance" on your meat - who grew it and if it is "organic", grass fed, etc.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
