What to do with Thanksgiving leftovers - #dairyfree recipes!

Thanksgiving can be a time of feasting but often we are left with well, leftovers. And I don't know about you, as much as I do love the yummies on Thanksgiving day I get pretty bored eating the same meal day after day after day. Except for oatmeal, fruit, and a dallop of peanut butter for my almost daily breakfast. Why is that okay?

And yes, I know we can all make turkey sandwiches but in all reality, that isn't my cup of tea.

The other day I posted my recipe for Cranberry Sauce Waffles. Thank you for the wonderful feedback and comments. Today I want to share a couple more of my new creations I made this year. Don't worry, I know cooking a feast is time consuming...these recipes are not!

Turkey Quiche

Ingredients:
Frozen Pie Crust (I have found that brand name crusts are often dairy free)
7 eggs
2 cups of spinach
1 cup chopped turkey
Salt
Pepper
Parsley

Steps:
Preheat oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
Toss the eggs and spinach into a food processer and whirl away! It beats the eggs and purees the spinach.
Place the turkey into the pie crust.
Top with the egg/spinach mixture.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, parsley to taste.
Bake 30-40 minutes or until set.
Enjoy!

Servings: 4-6

Turkey Dinner Soup

Ingredients:
3 cups chicken broth (I used my homemade broth)
1 cup roasted butternut squash with apples (or other similar roasted veggies, I am not sure how sweet potatoes made with marshmallows or other sweet additions would work) - mash them up!
1 3/4 cup Broussels sprouts cut into quarters (or other veggie leftovers)
2 cups shredded turkey

Step:
Place it all into a slow cooker, set your time, and enjoy your day!
yummier than it looks!

I served darling daughter's as the soup but put mine and dear hubby's over some warmed up leftover stuffing. It was delicious!

Servings: 4

  1. TURKEY SOUP SOUNDS LIKE UTTER SCRUMPTIOUSNESS! Too bad I had NO LEFTOVERS to make it, lol! Just sounds like a dinner I am going to make myself in general ;)
