Turkey Crisp

Leftovers are rarely an issue in this house, not because we eat gobble everything down, we have no problems eating leftovers.  However on big meal days, like Thanksgiving (or when I seem to have no sense of “there’s only two of us”) leftovers can eventually become a put off.  You just loose your taste for them.

That’s when it’s time to freeze or reinvent the meal. My turkey crisp is really a no-recipe kind of recipe and it certainly doesn’t miraculously change the flavor of turkey day left overs, rather it presents it in a new light.  Instead of a plate full of exactly what we had the day before and the before that, it’s new and if I may say so cute dish.  With a name like Turkey Crisp it sounds rather tasty.

You can do this as a casserole or in individual dishes (seemed like a perfect time to whip out the mini cauldrons).  It’s layers of leftovers topped with stuffing then baked until hot and bubbly.  What could be easier? A nice salad on the side and your set.

I hope that all of you had a wonderful and happy Thanksgiving!
