PostSubject: Leftovers and how to re-invent them   Mon Dec 01, 2008 10:30 am

As it's just a few days after Thanksgiving, this is on my mind.

So far I've stripped the turkey and frozen it, the scraps, some extra meat and vegetables to save toward brown turkey stock.

I made four small turkey pot pies. I froze the rest of the gravy in cubes.

Brunch on Friday was fried ham and potato pancakes.

Tonight we're having ham and scalloped potatoes; I'll fold the rest of the mushrooms au gratin into the potatoes.

Haven't decided yet what to do with the rest of the jellied cranberry sauce--I'll probably use it swirled through a coffee cake.

The dressing (oven baked stuffing) has been frozen and I'm saving it to make a savory bread pudding.

I forgot to add the mushrooms last night, so I put together a casserole for dinner tonight with leftovers from my husband's lunch contribution on Sunday. He made elbow macoroni in tomato sauce. There was one Italian sausage left, too.

With the addition of shredded carrots, thinly sliced onion, diced red bell pepper, the leftover mushrooms, a dollop of white wine and some cream we have dinner for tonight. Parmesan cheese and black pepper over the top to finish; we'll have it with a spinach salad and a glass of red wine.

The Christmas leftovers became beef pot pie, beef stew and I made potato pancakes with the leftover mashed potatoes.

I baked a small fresh ham on New Year's Eve (didn't care for it much, I prefer them cured), but my husband has been snacking on that.

The leftover nibbles have become appetizers and such. I used the pepper parmesan cheese ball leftovers as a sandwich spread.

Oh, and the leftover filling from the hot hors d'ouvres went into the pot pies; it was minced mushroom with a dash of port.

Cross-posting, but I made savory bread pudding with leftover Thanksgiving dressing & mushrooms, cheese & bacon.

We still have some challah that's been around a while; I think I'm going to make French toast this weekend.
