Crock-pot Turkey Tetrazzini
My favorite part of preparing the Thanksgiving meal is having turkey for leftovers. That is the reason I make two turkeys, one turkey baked and one turkey slow cooked in the crock-pot. Since I am already doing the work to prepare one bird, why not cook two? This is the biggest time saver in the kitchen I know, since it saves a tremendous amount of time on preparation and clean up.
I love to make a variety of dishes out of shredded turkey and chicken. It’s great to have a variety of flavors and options instead of always having a plain chicken sandwich (those can be great, too, though). Tetrazzini is a dish we might have once a year at Thanksgiving time for a different kind of leftover. This year I have experimented a few times with chicken and turkey, loving both.
The Verdict: I can’t believe how creamy this comes out, especially without dairy! I am getting really excited about using coconut milk as a non-dairy alternative.
Looking for other recipes to vary your turkey leftovers? Let me count the ways. Shredded turkey can substitute for shredded chicken in any of these dishes.
What do you do with your turkey leftovers??
