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.

This year, make your Thanksgiving dinner anything but predictable! Since turkey makes its presence known at the Thanksgiving spread, why not give it a fetching flavor to match? Perhaps something bold and bright like ‘Tandoori Turkey’. I like to think of it as the turkey with an Eastern promise! Succulent slices of turkey that have been bathed for hours in a spiced yogurt marinade of ginger, chili, and fenugreek will leave you without any leftovers for those ‘next day’ turkey sandwiches.

Pumpkin Pie Fudge Recipe

BY JOANNE BRUNO

Sometimes I have days where I can make a batch of fudge and not eat three quarters and a half of it in one sitting. (In my dreams.) And then there are times when the fudge in question tastes like pumpkin and pie and everything that is right in this world.  When that happens, you have no choice. This recipe is a great option if you want to bring a new dessert to the Thanksgiving table as opposed to the regular pumpkin pie.

Piled-High Apple Pie Recipe

I am really into holidays and any occasion to celebrate, particularly one that necessitates pie. Fall has many such occasions, pumpkin pie and pecan pie for Thanksgiving, but summer has no defined pie to holiday relationships. This leaves me in place to take every chance I can get to bake a flaky-crusted, fruit-filled summer dessert.  Read More

Coconut Milk and Pomegranate Marinated Turkey Recipe

By Marcus Samuelsson | November 23, 2010

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.
