Leftovers

Christmas is over. Some of you may have already taken your tree down, some may still have it up for a while, but there's one thing that almost all of us have in common right now; leftover food. I know that I get really tired of turkey sandwiches or turkey salad.

For the last few years, I have tired to come up with something different to fix with all of that leftover turkey. After trying a few different things, I found what has turned out to be one of my favorite winter dishes, Turkey Pot Pie. It's something warm to satisfy us on a cold winter day and it's full of vegetables, which we all need after eating all that holiday cookies and candy. Most important, it uses up a lot of that leftover turkey.


Turkey Pot Pie

1 can Cream of Potato Soup
1 can Cream of Celery Soup
1 C. milk
1/4 t. pepper
1 15-16 oz. package frozen vegetables
2 C. cooked turkey, cubed
1 can refrigerated biscuits

Preheat over to 400 degrees F. In a 3 qt baking dish, combine soups, milk, and pepper. Stir well. Add vegetables and turkey. Bake for 15 minutes. While mixture is baking, cut each biscuit into quarters. Remove dish from oven and stir. Top with biscuit pieces and return it to oven for 15 minutes more, or until biscuits are golden brown. This serves about 5. You can also substitute chicken for the turkey.

This sounds great, Carol! I'll have to try it! After Thanksgiving, I found a turkey tetrazzini recipe that was a hit around here.

Hope you had a merry Christmas:)

It is such a challenge to use up the leftovers. This was one of the reasons why I did not do a turkey for Christmas dinner this year.

Well Jerry, now you will be prepared for leftovers next Christmas. Thanks.
