Two Dishes to Make with Thanksgiving Leftovers

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

These two recipes aren’t necessarily for Thanksgiving day (although you could try them out, of course); their optimal use falls on the day after, when you have a fridge full of leftovers.

Mashed Potato & Stuffing Patties

What you’ll need:

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups leftover chopped cooked turkey
  • 2 cups leftover stuffing
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, onion and pepper. Stir in potatoes, turkey and stuffing.
  2. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, drop potato mixture by 1/2 cupfuls into pan; press to flatten slightly to form patties.
  3. Fry 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and heated through. Drain on paper towels.

Turkey Stir-Fry

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup cut green beans
  • 1 tablespoon peanut or canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cashews, optional
  • Minced fresh cilantro, optional
  • Hot cooked rice

  1. In a large skillet, saute beans in peanut or canola oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer or until fragrant.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, soy sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper. Pour over bean mixture in skillet. Add turkey and simmer uncovered, for 4-6 minutes or until heated through.
  3. If desired, sprinkle with cashews and, if desired, cilantro. Serve with dinner rolls or over rice.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 French baguettes,
    cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1½ cup melted butter

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 250°F and set out two large baking sheets.
  2. Arrange baguette slices onto the baking sheets.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter and garlic. Drizzle half of the mixture over the bread slices.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes. Turn the slices over and drizzle remaining mixture over the slices. Return to the oven and continue baking for 50 minutes – 1 hour (or until golden brown), flipping the slices over every 10 minutes.
