Thanksgiving is over, but the turkey remains. At least, at our house that’s the case. Usually we do a turkey breast because there’s only two adults and one picky eater here. But this year, a friend moved, and we lucked out because she gifted us her turkey – a full-sized one. Now we have a LOT of leftover turkey, so I’m experimenting with ways to get it eaten.
This is one of my mom’s old recipes. It’s actually called Gulf Coast Chicken, but I have discovered that leftover turkey works really, really well. It’s a slightly different flavor from the standard Thanksgiving fare, so it was a welcome change for our family.
And it’s super easy to make. Just throw your leftover turkey/chicken in a bowl, mix with the soup and cream, and spread over a base of crushed crackers. Bake it until it’s nice and bubbly, and then serve. Here’s video for you visual types. The written instructions are below.
