Meal ideas for leftover Turkey

I hope you had a wonderful stress free Christmas day and you’ve now enjoyed a nice relaxing Boxing Day. At this point having enjoyed the Turkey hot on Christmas Day and maybe some leftover on Boxing day you are probably wondering what to do with what’s leftover?

One simple idea which I’m sure will be welcome as the weather takes a turn for the worse in the UK, is a nice hot Turkey Casserole.

There’s a good Turkey Casserole recipe over on the BBC Good Food Website which I recommend you take a look at.

As an alternative why not pull the remaining meat off the Turkey and fry it until hot and crispy with some nice spices and chilli and then serve with a salad.

There’s no need to add any oil to the frying pan, just get it nice and hot before adding the meat. The heat will release enough oil for cooking. I did how ever add a splash of mild chilli olive oil for extra flavour.  Cook the Turkey until it’s hot all the way through and crispy but be careful not to burn it.  When done mix with some green salad, tomatoes and olives and serve with crusty bread and butter.

Add some pomegranate to make it a lovely Christmas treat. This will make a nice change after roast dinner on Christmas Day and no doubt the various Christmas Dinners you’ve had at various functions in the run up to Christmas.
