Leftover Thanksgiving Hash Recipe

In Sweden there’s a dish called pytt i panna that’s literally translated to little pieces in a pan. Here, we call it a hash and there’s no better way to use your Thanksgiving leftovers (or any leftovers) than to fry them up with some potatoes and throw in some kind of protein. Here I use fingerling potatoes, brussel sprouts, leftover turkey, and drizzle it with some turkey gravy. The best part? The fried egg on top.

 

Stuffed Mac-n-Cheese Recipe

Folding leftover stuffing into freshly made mac-n-cheese isn’t for the faint of heart. But it’s definitely an easy and fun way to use up what’s left. Serve with a side salad and plenty of fresh vegetables to offset the richness of this dish.

Ramen with Turkey Broth Recipe

After Thanksgiving, most people opt to just use the leftover meat for sandwiches and casseroles. But in my house, I like to go 360 degrees on the bird which means using the bones and carcasses to make a rich turkey stock that’s the perfect basis for a hot bowl of ramen the next day.

Coconut Milk and Pomegranate Marinated Turkey Recipe

This year, I’m trying something new for my Thanksgiving turkey.  I am making a marinade of coconut milk, buttermilk and pomegranate juice.  I think this will ensure a really moist holiday bird.

You can make this recipe yourself!  Start this tomorrow by brining the turkey in a saltwater mixture.  Then, on the morning of Thanksgiving, transfer the turkey to a flavorful marinade that will seal moisture into the bird.  With a 2 1/2 hours of roasting, you will have plenty of time to get your other dishes done in the kitchen.

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I have chosen most of the components for my perfect holiday dinner.  One of the last dishes to plan is a healthy green side dish.  A Green Bean Salad from New American Table fits the bill perfectly.

For a delicious take on the healthy side of your meal, I dress up green beans with jalapeño, peanuts and fried garlic and shallots.  I’m excited to include these savory beans in my meal this year!

Combine these green beans with my other Thanksgiving-appropriate recipes: Oysters with Green Tomato, Carrot-Cranberry Chutney, Harissa Roasted Turkey, Corn Bread, Corn Mashed Potatoes and Pear-Pumpkin Salad.

Because I’m lucky enough to have been invited to a Southern Soul Food themed potluck I won’t be cooking the entire Thanksgiving meal this year – I’ve been assigned to dessert (Sweet Potato Bourbon Bundt Cake) and a side (Classic Collard Greens). I’ll also be making a Festive Fall Sangria as a treat for my hosts.

Thanksgiving Corn Bread Recipe

With one of my favorite holidays coming up next week, I will be posting one thanksgiving recipe every day until the big day. Today I’m thinking about what I baked good I will serve on the side of the meal. For easy shopping, if you’re planning on making my Corn Mashed Potatoes Recipe for your Thanksgiving, pick up an extra four ears of corn for my spiced cornbread. Baking the loaves in a water bath gives them a creamy texture, with a perfect crust. It makes two loaves, which will be enough for all your hungry guests.

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and I think everyone, especially those who care about food are starting to think about Thanksgiving dinner. Traditionally, there are several Thanksgiving staples that we tend to focus on when we think of the big dinner: turkey, stuffing, gravy, potatoes, cornbread, green beans, creamed onions, Brussels sprouts etc. Some families cook all of these things in fairly traditional ways while others cook some of these dishes and substitute for others while others, (especially in a city like New York) put their own multicultural twists on Thanksgiving fare.

Thanksgiving for me has always been about spending time with family and friends, hopefully enjoying a nice meal and then probably falling asleep somewhere warm, hours before I’m supposed to go to bed. Read More
