Have too many leftovers?
We love the fried stuffing balls we wrote about on Wednesday. The recipe also turns leftover cranberry sauce into a dip for the stuffing balls.
What about too much turkey and too many sweet potatoes? Here are some ideas from Spice Islands and THE NIBBLE:
Turkey Cranberry Sandwich
Mix cranberries with mayonnaise and make a turkey sandwich on better-for-you whole wheat bread or toast. Add leftover stuffing, salad or a combination of lettuce, tomato and sliced cucumbers. As a side with your sandwich, crunch on any remaining crudités.
Turkey Pot Pie
Leftover turkey is a wonderful excuse to make pot pie! Here’s a recipe.
White Bean Turkey Chili
Use a traditional white bean turkey chili recipe with cumin—here’s a recipe from Emeril Lagasse. For a more complex flavor, add two teaspoons of vanilla to the recipe. Long a “secret” ingredient in chili, vanilla, also from Mexico, mellows the heat of the chiles, pairs well with cumin and adds a rich, earthy taste and aroma.
Sweet Potato Mash
You can turn candied sweet potatoes into mashed potatoes as a side, or sweetened to taste with sugar and pumpkin pie spices (plus some vanilla extract) to fill tartlet or pie shells.
Mix cranberry sauce with a dash of cinnamon, orange liqueur and a teaspoon of vanilla. Heat on the stove until warm and pour over vanilla or berry ice cream or sorbet.
