The day after Thanksgiving is the day we realize we have a lot of leftover turkey. Enjoy my ideas for how to use this meat.
In past years I’ve come up with several ways to use Thanksgiving leftovers. After I clean the carcass of most of its meat, I make a hearty turkey soup with onions, carrots, celery ribs, parsley, long-grain white rice and seasoning. The actual meat can be made into turkey enchiladas, turkey tetrazzini (spaghetti, mushrooms, turkey, almonds and seasonings), or a grilled cheese sandwich using cranberry mustard, sliced turkey, avocado, cranberry relish and Havarti cheese.
But, my favorite is Turkey Hash, the perfect brunch dish for Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. This dish incorporates potatoes, leftover turkey, and a few veggies, topped with two fried eggs. If you like food spicy, get out the Tabasco sauce.
