We know. You totally didn’t listen to us and you made a turkey. Sigh. It’s okay. Everyone does it. Not only did you make a turkey, however, but you made way too much turkey. Everyone in your household has been eating turkey sandwiches like they’re going out of style, but there are still, somehow, endless leftovers. Because we’re getting into a holiday-inspired giving mood, here are some thoughts on what to make now that sandwiches have gotten dull.
•Even we are down with turkey when it’s used as a topping for nachos! We’d recommend adding some guacamole to the recipe, but other than that, it sounds like the perfect accompaniment for a night spent watching The Hills.
•You know what makes everything better? Cheddar cheese. This turkey potpie with a cheddar crust will probably be just the thing with a nice bottle of stout. Mmmm, just like being in a cozy pub.
•Screw this December 22 nonsense. After Thanksgiving, it’s totally wintertime. And what’s better in winter than soup? This Italian turkey soup is packed with turkey and hearty veggies and boasts a heavy dose of ravioli to boot. So satisfying on a cold night!
•Even if you are more of a turkey enthusiast than are we, you can’t deny that pork makes turkey even tastier. This recipe for spicy turkey paella marries smoked sausage with turkey. The result is delightfully savory.
