    I don't know what everyone else does with their thanksgiving leftovers, but I like to make Thanksgiving Panini's!

    Here's what you'll need to make them:

    2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    2 slices sourdough sandwich bread
    2 slices Swiss
    1/3 cup shredded leftover roasted or fried turkey
    3 tablespoons leftover cranberry sauce
    1/3 cup leftover stuffing
    2 tablespoons leftover giblet gravy
    butter, at room temperature


    Make sure that you Spread the mustard on both slices of bread, then lay a slice of cheese on each half piece. On one side arrange the turkey and the cranberry sauce. On the other side lay on the stuffing/dressing and spoon the gravy over the top.

    Mash it together quickly to keep the insides from falling out then spread the top side of the bread with 1 tsp of the butter.

    Invert the sandwich, butter-side down, onto a hot panini maker (or a grill pan or skillet over medium-low heat). Spread the top with the remaining 1 tsp of butter.

    Close the panini maker and grill the sandwich until the bread is crusty and golden, the fillings are hot, and the cheese is melted. Flip the sandwich halfway through to grill the other side
    Rolling with the Punches, folks, nothing to see here...

    Default Tomato Basil Casserole

    I could use a new turkey fryer! lol

    We usually make a casserole style dish. One of my personal favorites is Tomato Basil Turkey Casserole.

    The trick to a decent flavorful casserole is using a good pasta sauce. Don't use "Ragu" or another similar flavorless sauce or the casserole will be bland & boring.

    2 cups uncooked gemelli pasta (8 oz)
    2 cups diced cooked turkey
    1 jar (26 oz) tomato pasta sauce (any hearty or thick variety)
    1 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into slices (1 1/2 cups)
    1 can (2 1/4 oz) sliced ripe olives, drained
    1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
    1/4 cup shredded fresh Parmesan cheese .

    Heat oven to 375°F.
    Cook & drain the pasta, then mix in everything except the cheese.
    Cover with aluminum foil and bake 30 minutes. Remove from oven, Sprinkle with cheese.
    Bake uncovered 15 to 20 minutes longer or until bubbly and thoroughly heated.

    Another one is also simple Turkey Pot Pie w/Puff Pastry

    4 cups shredded turkey breast
    5 tablespoons good quality olive oil, divided
    1 tablespoon finely minced shallot
    Zest from one lemon, preferably organic
    2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf Italian parsley
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    8 ounces fresh cremini mushrooms, coarsely chopped
    2 leeks, white and pale green parts thinly sliced
    2 carrots, cut into small dice
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/3 cup dry white vermouth
    1/3 cup flour
    4 cups chicken broth or stock
    1/4 cup heavy cream, or half & half
    3/4 cups frozen peas
    1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
    1 egg, lightly beaten

    1. In a medium sized bowl, mix together turkey, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, shallots, lemon zest, and parsley; set aside.
    2. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter, with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, in a dutch oven; saute mushrooms over medium high heat until cooked through, and lightly browned; transfer to a bowl, and set aside.
    3. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil, over medium heat, in a clean dutch oven; add leeks, carrots, and thyme, and cook until vegetables begin to soften (about 8 minutes); raise heat slightly, add dry vermouth, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated.
    4. Add flour to carrot mixture, stirring constantly for about 1 minute; whisk in the stock and cream, then simmer until sauce thickens (about 10 minutes); remove from heat, and allow to cool to room temperature.
    5. Mix together cooled sauce, with the lemon-parsley turkey, mushrooms, and frozen peas; divide between 4 mini-loaf pans.
    6. Cut 4 pieces from the puff pastry, large enough to cover each loaf pan, with 1/2 inch hanging over on each side; crimp edges with the tines of a fork; tightly wrap each pie in several layers of plastic wrap, and a layer of aluminum foil; freeze up to 2 months.
    7. Cooking frozen pies: preheat oven to 400; brush tops of unwrapped, frozen pies with egg, and bake for 30-35 minutes, until tops are golden brown; let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving
