Happy Thanksgiving to my dear readers!  I am thankful for you!

If you do end up with any leftovers, I have two ideas for you:

The Kentucky Hot Brown

4 thick slices of white bread

sliced roasted turkey

Mornay sauce – recipe below 

shredded parmesan cheese

tomato sliced in 4

8 bacon slices, cooked

Preheat oven broiler with rack 6 inches from the heat

Place bread slices on a baking sheet and broil for 1-2 minutes each side or until toasted light golden brown

Top bread with turkey.  Pour sauce over turkey and sprinkle with cheese.

Broil 6 minutes or until bubbly and remove from oven.  Top with tomato slice and bacon and serve immediately.

Mornay Sauce:  

1/2 c. butter

1/3 c. flour

3 and 1/2 cups milk

1/2 c. shred parmesan cheese

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper 

Melt butter in saucepan over med-high heat.  Whisk in flour.  Cook, whisking constantly for 1 min.  Gradually whisk in milk.  Bring to a boil and cook down until thickened.  Whisk in cheese, and salt and pepper and you are done!  


Southwestern Turkey Soup

combine cooked and cubed or shredded turkey with:

1 12 oz. jar salsa verde

1 15 oz. can of cannellini beans, drained 

3 cups chicken broth

1 tsp. cumin

Serve with a bit of sour cream and possibly shredded Mexican cheese on top and some tortilla strips


What is your favorite thing to do with leftovers?  

Let me know if you try these!
