Default Leftovers!

Perhaps the best part of Thanksgiving are the leftovers. Anyone have any leftover traditions, like making a big thing of turkey noodle soup or a particular sammich like a turkey, dressing, gravy, and a smidge of cranberry sauce in it?

I am planning on starting a new tradition myself by making turkey noodle soup tomorrow. I'm at my folks place for the weekend, so I'll take the turkey carcass from today after the meat is picked off, let it simmer in a pot of water for about an hour and a half. Once that is done, make up a quick roux then add some onion , a bit of garlic, and add the turkey stock after they cook for a bit. Oh, and add a bunch of egg noodles and turkey meat, and should be good to go. Anyone that makes this often and have tips feel free to let me know. Thanks! And Happy Turkey Day!

My mom makes turkey pot pies with a lot of the vegetables, mashed potatoes, gravy, and everything. They are delicious.

I think she does it because it is the best way to freeze leftovers. That way you don't have to eat leftovers every day for a week. No matter how tasty you make leftovers it can still get boring eating the same thing over and over again.

Plus it is always good to have something in the freezer that is basically a complete meal with meat and veggies and everything it it.

Can't have chicken noodle soup without some carrots. Maybe make some glazed carrots as a side dish then use the leftovers in the soup.

I also love celery and peas in my chicken noodle soup.

That actually sounds really good.

I am always rolling up leftovers in flour tortillos like meatloaf and mac-n-cheese.

There's nothing so good as a cold white meat turkey sandwich on whole grain bread with sea salt, pepper, and some nonfat mayonnaise on it. I'm having one of those right now for lunch with a cold glass of aerated Merlot. My taste buds are so happy that they need to get a frickin' room.

It is flat out tasty.

Thanksgiving Hash
- leftover turkey broken up in pieces
- stuffing
- cranberry sauce
- mashed potatoes
- gravy
- yams
- wild rice

Mix all the ingredients in one big bowl.
Cover and refrigerate.
Scoop out the portion you will eat and microwave.
Makes for a good quick no-fuss meal.
I use potato bread to make sandwiches from it.

I have about 1/4 ham left I'm trying to figure what to do with today. I was thinking of dicing it up and possibly making some kind of soup. I have ate ham for the last 4 days and I never get tired of it, but I have to do something before it starts to go bad. Therefore, if I put it in a soup and then freeze it, it should stay good until thawed and reheated right?

You don't have to put it in soup to freeze it. Just freeze the ham as it is. All you have to do is make sure you heat it thouroughly when you thaw it out and eat it immediately.

I like to take slices of the breast and fry them in a little bit of butter, then make a sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Heavenly,

Also english muffins freeze very well unlike most breads that get tough when you freeze them. So if you want to you can make ham and cheese muffins and freeze them individually. Then when you want one just get it out and microwave it.

I have done this befoe and I even went to the trouble of making ham egg and cheese muffins. It was a lot of trouble to make them all up, but they worked out great.

I will eat food a week later. After that, it's usually thrown away. My wife freezes soup after it's made the first time, so that stays a lot longer. No leftovers this Thanksgiving for me. They frown upon that on an airplane, but this is usually my favorite holiday for them.

Yup, or just freeze it as is. Ham will go bad eventually but its smoked and salted which helps keep it fresh longer than some other meats
