Happy Day After Thanksgiving! I hope you all were stuffed and roasted this holiday.

It was quite a feast around the ol' Manor.... we had tons of roast beast, and the gobblin gravy was flowing! But even with all of our guests, I've still got tons of leftovers.... oh what to do?

There are so many leftover turkey recipes out there, but here's my favorite:


~1-1/2 pounds shredded turkey meat
~1/2 cup chopped onion
~ 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
~ 1 cup salsa
~ 1/2 cup chili sauce
~1/2 cup black beans
~ 1 cup frozen corn
~ 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
~ 2 tablespoons brown sugar
~ 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
~ 1 egg
~ Orange paste food coloring


In a large skillet, heat shredded turkey and onion over medium heat until onion is cooked. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salsa and chili sauce until blended; stir into skillet. Add the corn, chilies, black beans and brown sugar.

Transfer to a deep-dish 9-in. pie plate. Unroll pastry; place over filling. With a sharp knife, cut out a face to resemble a jack-o'-lantern; flute edges. Beat egg and food coloring; brush over pastry.

Bake at 450° for 9-11 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. This recipe makes about 6 servings. You can also replace the turkey with ground beef, for this recipe, it's a fun one to expreiment with. So give it a try, and have fun. Now, what to do with all that leftover gobblin gravy????
