Whether you are home or in your RV for Thanksgiving dinner, you’re bound to have leftovers. Depending on the space you have available in the freezer, you can freeze the leftovers – or you may have to use them right away.
Many RV models at Specialty RV Sales have larger freezers so you can store some of the leftovers for later, especially for a day when you have been busy all day and just don’t feel like making a complete meal.
Purchase individual sectioned trays like those used for TV dinners. Portion out the leftovers, then wrap well and freeze. You have instant TV dinners for those nights you don’t want to cook. You can also freeze baggies with enough for your family – ‘x’ servings of turkey in one bag, ‘x’ servings of potatoes in another, etc.
A cold roast turkey sandwich loaded with lettuce and tomato is one of the best comfort foods you can make. Some like to take it to the limit and add potatoes, cranberry sauce, squash, stuffing and other turkey dinner leftovers to the sandwich. Other sandwich ideas include grilled turkey, cheese and tomato sandwiches and turkey clubs.
Thanksgiving Day Every Day
Some just like to put everything in the fridge and eat Thanksgiving dinner every day until the leftovers are gone. If you have the space, this is great for making quick lunches or even suppers. You’ll probably run out of the “sides” before you run out of turkey, but that’s when the turkey sandwiches come into play.
Make turkey hash – instead of corned beef hash – and serve it with eggs, preferably sunny side up. You can also make turkey sausage if you prefer that over pork sausage. If you have too many sweet potatoes left over, make sweet potato waffles or pancakes. That’s a great spin on the pumpkin pancakes that are so popular.
Turkey Pot Pie
A great comfort food, especially on a cold night, is turkey pot pie. You can make this as easy or as difficult as you want. To make it really simple, use one can of condensed cream of broccoli soup and one can of condensed cream of celery soup. Pour the soups together in a deep-sided baking dish. Add ½ to 1 can of milk, depending on how thick you want the “gravy.”
Add a bag of frozen mixed vegetables. Chop up whole boiled potatoes into small pieces. Mix the vegetables into the gravy. Cut leftover turkey into small pieces and mix that in. Add salt and pepper to taste. And, if you want a little kick to it, add a dash of cayenne pepper.
Prepare biscuits as directed by Bisquick or Jiffy. Drop the biscuits on top of the pot pie mixture. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit until the biscuits are browned and a toothpick comes out clean. If the biscuits are browning too fast, you can cover the dish with foil.
