Roast Turkey

Great in soups and stews, casseroles and of course sandwiches, leftover turkey is even better when recast in unexpected dishes.

Our Secret Twists 

  • Wontons: Pulse 1 cup chopped turkey, 1 cup sliced shiitakes, ¼ cup chopped green onions, 2 teaspoons soy sauce, and 1 teaspoon grated ginger in a food processor until minced. Add 1 egg white; pulse 2 times. Fill wonton wrappers; simmer in turkey stock or broth.
  • Turkey patatas bravas (a riff on hash): Cook a 20-ounce package diced potatoes with onions per directions. Add 1 cup chopped turkey, 2⁄3 cup tomato puree, 4 minced garlic cloves, ½ teaspoon ground cumin, and ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper; cook 2 minutes.
