>My Turkey Leftover Recipe

>We were tired of the complete Christmas dinner leftovers tonight. I was determined to figure out a new way to eat that turkey with what we had on hand — and we still had a bunch of veggies left (some raw, some cooked, some frozen). Thought I’d try something inspired by hubby’s favorite Stir-Fry recipe. So here is what we made tonight for dinner:

My Turkey Leftover Recipe:
1 large onion, chopped
3 TBSP WT Garlic GSO, divided
1 1/2 cups turkey. cooked and chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
1 cup broccoli, lightly steamed
1/4 cup frozen peas
3 TBSP WT Rancher’s Steak Rub, divided

Preparation: Put 2 TBSP of Garlic GSO in large skillet on Medium Hi heat. Add onion and cook until translucent. Then add the remaining vegetables (use whatever vegetables you have on hand) and 2 TBSP Rancher’s Rub. Saute for a few minutes until frozen peas are soft and mushrooms are lightly browned. Then add turkey, seasoned with remaining Rancher’s Rub. Heat through and serve over par-boiled, butter-flavored potatoes.

To make the Potatoes:
6 medium potatoes, peeled, diced
2 – 3 TBSP WT Butter GSO
Coarsely ground Sea Salt, to taste

Place potatoes in pot of boiling water. Boil until slightly tender but still firm. Remove and drain. Drizzle with Butter GSO and sprinkle with salt.

If however you get distracted by the kids (or whatever the distractions are in your house) and over cook the darn potatoes. Just pull the milk out of the fridge and add a bit to the potatoes and mash them. The kids like it better this way anyway — I’m sure their whole escapade was a distraction conspiracy so that I’d overcook the potatoes and my only option would be to mash them.

But anywhooooooooo ……

If you have broth or gravy on hand and prefer a saucier dish add it. You can thicken any broth with some melted butter and flour/cornstarch added to it before stirring into the skillet.

It was a great meal, loved by all ages (2 – 70 to be exact). Let me know how it turns out in your home or how you made your own special turkey leftover recipe.
