Over at GoodyBlog, we posted the Slashfood feed about Thanksgiving leftovers. I am still (4 days later) eating leftovers, and I’m about to burst from too much turkey, stuffing, and mashed sweet potatoes. But I’m kind of obsessed with the Slashfood feed about how to use leftovers to make the perfect turkey sandwich. I have my own genius recipe for a Cran-Gravy Turkey Stuffed sandwich. Here’s how it goes: toast 2 pieces of whole wheat bread, spread cold cranberry sauce onto the bread like jelly, warm some turkey and stuffing with a small amount of gravy in the microwave, and then layer the stuffing and turkey onto the bread. Delicious. What’s your favorite Thanksgiving leftover recipe?
Last night was our annual pre-Thanksgiving dinner at Eric’s, and he made the most amazing turkey. Click here for the recipe from Epicurious for a delicious Herb-Roasted Turkey with Apple Cider Gravy… it got 2 thumbs up from the entire party. Eric’s turkey looked much prettier than this photo, but everyone was too hungry to stop and take a photo. Sorta a bummer, but believe me when I say it looked and tasted sooooo good.
Also, the night featured a heated debate about which is better: canned cranberry sauce or homemade. I fought steadfastly for canned, but apparently I’m outnumbered according to this vote.
In case you haven’t clicked over yet, GoodyBlog is doing a 2-week-long recipe fest with tons of great ideas for Thanksgiving. I posted Jo the MasterBaker‘s Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake, and it’s been a huge hit! There’s everything from pie, to Irish cheesecake, to deep-fried turkey, and there will be more coming every day until Thanksgiving.
Also, in case you missed it, the NY Times did a huge round-up of Thanksgiving recipes that all sound amazing.
I can’t wait for turkey-day! I love stuffing so much.
And then deep fry it if you’re really a badass! Serious Eats is giving away one turkey a day until (and including) Sunday, Nov. 18. I don’t know why I want to win this so badly, but I do. I want that turkey! They’re giving away a D’Artagnan certified organic bird that’s fed organic grains and pure spring water—no protein supplements, added poultry or fish byproducts, pesticides or herbicides. Additionally no antibiotics, no growth hormones. “The result is a poultry with great flavor, tenderness, and a 25 percent lower fat content than standard commercially raised turkey,” says S.E. Come on baby—momma needs a new turkey.
