Leftover Makeover For Turkey
Hello everyone, So as promised I have a new recipe for you all and be sure to check one of my husbands blogs to see the review for this recipe. Just copy and paste this: www.becausetobysaidso.blogspot.com and you will be able to read his review of this recipe. Ok so lets get started shall we?
2 cups of diced cooked turkey
1/3 cup of butter or extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup of flour
1 can of chicken broth or chicken bullion
1 large onion
2 cloves of minced garlic
2 diced stalks of celery
2 diced carrots or about a cup of diced carrots already cooked
1 teaspoon of curry
pinch of salt and pepper to taste
1 80z can of diced pineapple or use fresh if you have it
In a large skillet add your butter or oil and after warm add your onion, garlic, celery and carrots. We dont want to brown the veggies we want them to get soft and release their sweet flavor. From there we add our flour and whisk until all the flour is combined with the veggies and then add your chicken broth or stock. Whisk until smooth and then add your seasonings, pineapple and turkey. Keep on the burner until hot, serve it over rice and you have a revamped meal with leftover turkey that in no way tastes like Thanksgiving.
I hope you try this recipe and I hope you enjoy as my family and I did. Be sure to look at my husband's review for this recipe. Be on the look out for a new recipe tomorrow from me too. Have a wonderful day everyone and be sure to live, laugh and love.
When cooking rice to add more flavor without adding a lot of salt use a tablespoon of a mild hot sauce. Just add it to the water before you add the rice, it gives it a hint of flavor and there is no need to add salt.
