Leftover Turkey Ideas

Leftover Turkey Ideas - Even if you didn't cook at your house this Thanksgiving, chances are you were sent home with a few Tupperware containers stuffed with leftovers. If you are like me and you don't care for eating the same meal more than two days, there are many different ways to transform your turkey leftovers into delicious new meals. Here are a few of my favorite leftover turkey ideas:

Turkey Noodle Soup - Put some of your leftover turkey pieces to good use by transforming them into a delicious, hearty soup. My Mom always makes this after Thanksgiving and I love how delicious and comforting it is. You can even make a big batch freeze some of it so you'll have some for the next time you catch a cold.

Turkey Pot Pie - This is made just like Chicken Pot Pie. The only difference, obviously is the meat. The popular website, Allrecipes has a very highly rated recipe for turkey pot pie.
Thanksgiving Leftover Bowl - This is kind of my take on KFC's Mashed Potato Bowl. Layer your leftover Turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes, corn, and green beans all together in a bowl and enjoy.

Turkey and Swiss quesadillas with cranberry relish - This recipe is a clever way of using leftover cranberries or cranberry sauce. Spray a skillet with non stick cooking spray. Place a tortilla on the skillet, add turkey and shredded Swiss cheese. Place another tortilla on top and cook until tortilla is golden brown, turkey is heated completely, and the cheese is melted. Serve with cranberry relish or sauce.

Classic Turkey Club Sandwiches - I don't know anyone who doesn't love a good club sandwich and this is a tasty way to enjoy turkey leftovers. I particularly love the recipe from the Food Network. They suggest serving with chips and a pickle spear. I prefer using turkey bacon in my club sandwiches.

Turkey Turnovers - This recipe uses crescent rolls, found in the refrigerated section. Unroll them, layer turkey, and cheese and anything else you might want to add. If you're like me and enjoy the combination of turkey and cranberries, use them in your turkey turnovers. In this case, I omit the cheese.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
