The guests are gone, but what are you going to do with that picked over turkey and trimmings still sitting in the kitchen?
FOX News Radio’s Lilian Woo reports:
Leftover turkey may be just fine for sandwiches the day after:
Bishop: “But when you get further out, you’ve got to get more creative. Think turkey pot pie, think turkey tetrazzini.”
Jack Bishop, Editorial Director of America’s test kitchen says, for the pot pie, sautee some aeromatics; celery, onion, carrots, add flour, some broth or stock:
Bishop: “A little bit of half and half and you make a sauce that you can then add the turkey to and you put some biscuits on top and it is a perfect sort of comfort meal that uses the turkey in a way that might be even more delicious than Thanksgiving dinner.”
But most of all:
Bishop: “Do not throw out the turkey carcass. It is the best leftovers that you have from Thanksgiving. Use it to make soup.”
Four quarts of water, two cups of white wine, veggies and herbs. Now you’re set for some turkey noodle soup.
