This is a really easy recipe for breakfast if you have leftover lovers like we have in our home. The ingredients aren’t important, what’s important here is how you layer it in order to get the crispy bottom.
Saute in oil a little bit of onion.
Drop in turkey pieces that you pulled apart – sprinkle it around the pan. The idea is to build up your hash so there’s a little bit on all sides of the pan. Heat each layer before adding the next. The plan is to get a crispy bottom. If you put too many ingredients in at once you will end up steaming instead of crisping.
Sprinkle stuffing around on top of the turkey. The layers shouldn’t be too thick, or you will end up with a soggy middle.
I use my hands for this part (well for most parts) and pull the cold mashed potatoes out in little tiny balls and sprinkle all around the pan.
Stir a little, and if it needs vegetable spray to keep it from sticking spray a little on.
When it’s just about ready, crack your eggs out on top spread …Diana
The time has come to start the Thanksgiving dinner recipes. Dressing or Stuffing what’s the difference. Where I came from, everything was called stuffing, here in Ohio, mostly it’s called dressing so I always thought it was a regional thing. Whatever – you can also call it stuffing if you stuff it, and dressing if you don’t. Usually I don’t stuff the turkey, I bake the stuffing (or dressing) and serve it as a side dish – because I like it that way. I love apples and pecans in my dressing (stuffing) and sometimes I throw in some raisins. Here’s a recipe developed by the Deen Brothers. Oven dried bread means cube it and toast it on low until the bread is dry enough to use for stuffing.

It’s not too early for Thanksgiving turkey recipes, right? Halloween is over, but we have to think about the next big meal. This is the big kahuna of family meals so when you invite your family or your in-laws to your Thanksgiving dinner, it had better be good. I remember going to my sister-in-law’s and how they tormented her about whether her turkey would be dry. I felt so bad for her, but she was used to it, growing up with 5 brothers who show no mercy. In our family the women were the forced to be reckoned with, so the dynamic was more of encouragement. Either way, it’s nerve wracking to try and come up with a dinner that everyone will be tasting, so I’m sharing an interesting twist on turkey using one of my favorite ingredients – Tequila. This is a sweet citrusy turkey with a little tequila kick for your Thanksgiving Dinner. I hope this month brings you plenty of dishes to load your table up for the family to enjoy.
Turkey leftovers on Friday are always great. You shouldn’t want to do a huge preparation, just a little relaxing cooking for the day after Thanksgiving meal. I have this lovely chard colored red, yellow and green growing in my garden. No dyes involved in case like my kids you were wondering. We planted this in the raised beds earlier this past summer, but since Chard loves cool weather it is thriving and growing enthusiastically. Isn’t this just gorgeous?
I also had some Ruby Red Jasmine Rice to try out, which I thought would look awesome with my chard.
I pulled off the chard stems, chopped them and steamed them in the rice cooker along with the rice. My rice cooker has a steam tray that sits up from the rice.
Pace Picante sent me some great leftover ideas to go with your Thanksgiving dinner. Salsa is one of the best ways to liven up your leftovers. If you want to give them a little zing, try some of these recipes.

I’m making Cinnamon Apples – in a crockpot (College Girl and Teen Boy did most of the work)
Mashed Potatoes – crockpot
2 loaves of bread
Cut up apples and pineapples to munch on
Carrot Cake – College Girl did this – glaze for the top coming
Then we pack it all in the car along with some ice cream (to top the apples) and drive to the in-laws. Nothing fancy, don’t need to be a gourmet, just a little cutting, stirring and cooking and you have something decent on the table. Enjoy your family time, don’t spend too much time cooking, and let someone else clean up.Diana
My husband’s family loves mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving. We always ate sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes for our Thanksgiving. Later on, we decided not to bother with all the mashing, so my mom put the sweet potatoes in the oven whole, and we slit open the potatoes right on our plates, added some butter (which would melt on the hot potatoes) and eat them that way skin and all. (I may be leaning towards clean eating more than I thought.). Thursday I’ll be bringing mashed (white) potatoes to Thanksgiving dinner. I do have sweet potatoes in the cupboard though, because we love them so much, we’ll have them another day too.
- 2 lbs potatoes (this year I’m using red potatoes)
- Cold Water to cover
- 1 cup heavy cream or milk
- 6 tbs unsalted butter
- Salt & pepper
Quarter potatoes with skin on. Put into a saucepan with water to cover. Boil until fork tender. Drain water – and important – put back …Diana
I’m not a big fan of sausage or meat-turkey stuffing recipes. I added apples and raisins to my turkey stuffing a few years back and it became a big hit with my family. You could go totally vegetarian by using a vegetable stock instead of turkey or chicken.
3/4 cup butter melted 1 onion chopped small 1 celery stalk chopped small 1 apple peeled, cored and chopped 1/2 cup golden raisins 1 1/2 cups turkey or chicken stock (may substitute vegetable stock) 5 cups dried(or lightly toasted) bread cubes 1/8 tsp sage 1/8 tsp thyme Salt & pepper
Sauté slowly onion and celery in butter. When soft, add raisins, apple and stock, bring to boil. Mix with bread crumbs, sage, thyme, salt and pepper, put in butter baking dish, cover and bake in oven at …Deb Ng

Probably now you’re shopping and chopping in anticipation of Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day feast. 20 minutes after you set the food out to the table all your guest will be sipping wine or falling asleep on the couch while your table is left a shambles of turkey carcasses and large half-filled food bowls. You know you made too much food. In fact you probably did it on purpose because we all know the leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving dinner. So what are you going to do with all that leftover turkey?

- Defrost your turkey. You’ll need to keep it in the fridge for a few days in order for it to defrost. It takes longer with the giblet packet inside, so as soon as you can, take it out. If you didn’t leave enough time to defrost it totally, you will need to submerge your sealed Turkey in a big pot or sink full of cold water. Change the water every 1/2 hour. Whatever you do, put your arm all the way through from one end of the turkey to the other and make sure you get every single one of those giblet parts out.
