(Don't miss our special Thanksgiving Headquarters: A to Z)
You slaved in the kitchen for hours or even days preparing the perfect Thanksgiving meal. Let's face it: you're pooped!
Leftover turkey is great for just hacking off, sprinkling with salt and munching on, standing around the kitchen with family and friends. But sometimes you want a more substantial meal using the leftover bird, such as Rick Rodgers' Turkey Tetrazzini Gratin or a Mongolian Turkey and Broccoli Stir-Fry. Problem is, these recipes require getting back into the kitchen in a serious way, cutting and chopping and cooking again.
How about a simpler meal, one that comes together quickly and painlessly, but tastes like a world-class specialty? If this idea sounds appealing to you, consider what three ingredients you might pair with turkey to come up with a complete meal.
I've created two turkey-combo's to try: Mooshu Turkey and Turkey in Saffron Cream Sauce. But the possibilities are endless. Whether you pick stir-fry, sauté, hot casseroles, or cold salads, consider combining these ingredients with diced, cooked turkey:
These are the basics, and a simple touch of a flavored pasta, sesame oil, garlic or spices can further heighten the flavors without a lot of effort.
