Every year, my husband gets a turkey given to him by his work. I always keep it in the freezer for as long as possible, because we go to other places for the holidays. There is no reason for me to make a great big turkey around that time. So, it usually gets saved until around the early spring time. Then, when every gets over being tired of eating the bird, I will make it up and it’s a really special treat. The only problem is, we always have tons of leftovers. Our little family of four simply can’t eat an entire turkey. Some of it gets frozen, we make sandwiches and pot pies, but there is still some left. I’m always on the hunt for what I can do to reinvent it in a way that my family is going to eat it without complaint.
This turkey tetrazzzini recipe from Spend With Pennies is one that I always use that is usually a pretty big hit. It’s creamy, cheesy, and delicious, and it doesn’t make me feel like I’m eating turkey for the third day in a row, which is most likely the case.
The family even likes this, even though they are usually sick of the meat after the first day. I think it’s probably all the ingredients that combine to make this a huge crowd pleaser. It’s pretty versatile too, so feel free to make it your own.
