Leftover-Turkey-Recipes,Turkey Stroganoff,Turkey Casserole



Quick easy meals using leftover-turkey-recipes are the best. Better the second day anyway, turkey-leftovers served a variety of ways prevents waste, and saves YOU time.

I don't know about you, but I love turkey dinner.

It has to be one of my favorite meals there is, and I'm talking mainly about turkey dinner with all of the trimmings like we have at Thanksgiving and Christmas as a rule.

I may curse a little, especially when preparing it all, because to put on this dinner can take alot of work and makes lots of mess. But the end result is totally worth it. And, turkey goes a long way for leftover-turkey-recipes.

I could eat turkey everyday I think.

When some people have had their fill of it one day only, I'm only too happy to have the same dinner over again the next day, preceded by turkey sandwiches during the day too.

My husband isn't that way. The next day he likes to make turkey a la king. I worry that he's going to take too much of the bird away, but there are lots of turkey-leftovers to easily make this turkey-recipe. It's simple, fast, and pretty tasty. If you have lots of turkey, these are 2 simple leftover-turkey-recipes to make use of.

One of my favorite leftover-turkey-recipes is a simple casserole. Very filling, very yummy. It's just a matter of layering whatever leftovers you've got.

To be honest, my husband doesn't love this, but I think it's because it isn't sopping and soaked in gravy. Now that's how he likes his leftover-turkey-recipes made, but the nice thing about this, is that it "holds well"....a nice perfect little square and not a big mess. And it's got just enough of everything to be delicious.

TURKEY LAYERED CASSEROLE

13 x 9 baking dish

Bisquick

turnip, carrots, squash "whatever you have"

Gravy

Mashed potatoes

White and dark turkey slices

Method

Spread a little gravy in the bottom of your dish. Add slices of turkey to cover.

Next, layer vegetables. Add a bit more gravey and turkey.

Finish up with mashed potatoes. Add a bit of salt & pepper, and drizzle some gravy if you like.

Mix up two cups bisquick as per instructions on the box. Spread over top of mashed potatoes like icing on a cake; not too thick.

Place on a cookie sheet to catch drips, and bake at 350 degrees F., until bisquick mixture turns golden, and filling is bubbling.

A little cranberry sauce on the side is nice with this. Refrigerate with saran over top. Reheat in oven with foil over top, or zap a piece in the microwave.
