Resurrecting Leftovers to a Higher Quality Standard – (Part VI) Dailey Musings


What in the world to do with enough turkey to choke an army?

“Oh, no! Not turkey again.”

Meet the challenge, surprise children with a variety of good tastes, and delight Saturday night dinner party guests.

Here are a few ideas from my cookbook

(ISBN = 978-1-4327-2254-8),

 Confessions of An Oenophile *:


Gin’s Chinese Turkey Salad

Tiger’s Polenta and Turkey

Uncle Stan’s Turkey Tetrazzini

Cheddar, Bird, and Broccoli Sidedish

Tom Turkey Chili

U. S. Navy Bean and Turkey Soup

BBQ Sloppy Joseph


It will take little time finding out how sick your loved ones can get of eating cold turkey sandwiches or how lame it becomes trying to disguise turkey meat with gravy.

As long as the leftovers are stored safely, the meat can be used for days. Varying the spices is the key. Don’t be afraid of experimenting with small batches.


* Confessions of An Oenophile – An American Family Cookbook was published in 2008 by Outskirts Press and may be ordered for your kitchen collection and folks on your Christmas gift list from Amazon and Barnes & Noble for $29.95 plus shipping and handling.
