What to do with too much stuffing?!
I was wishing for someone to ask that question of; last week, when I joined this thing!
Well, I figured it out...You make a great thick crust for Turkey pot pies.
[Background story goes like this: planning on an easy meal for me and hubby ( a turkey breast, stuffing I had already made), his teenage son decides to move in with us...need a bigger meal!! They buy a turkey (frozen, prebasted, and pre-stuffed...GASP!)
I would never do that! I am a "free-range, organic, do it all from scratch kinda gal".
SO, huge amounts of turkey PLUS huge amounts of 2 types of stuffings!!! Yikes!
Well, the boys liked the one i made the best . So to use up the other type that came in the pre-stuffed turkey, I made shells of small pies and filed it with a white sauce mixed with left-over gravy, sauted onion and mushroom (my home-grown shitakis), carrots, celeriac, peas, potatoes and of course, cooked and cubed turkey.
It was a HIT...I must say! They asked; "Hey, where did you get this? It's great!" My usual "left-over meals" are met with much less enthusiasm!!!
