R,S,C Recipes

Here are the recipes from our latest round of Ready, Set, Cook.

From our very own Compulsive Writer:

This is something I have made before with leftover turkey.

Turkey a la anything

Steamed broccoli florets
leftover turkey--white and/or dark--pulled into pieces with a fork
grated cheese (cheddar, monterey jack, mozzarella-whatever
mild-to-medium cheese you've got that will melt half-way decent)

Steam rice or boil up a bowl of your favorite pasta. Prepare a basic
white sauce. Stir broccoli and turkey into white sauce. Heat through.
Stir in cheese till melted. Serve over rice or pasta.
From Laura the "cookware store manager at Montgomery Mall" ;)

I use leftover turkey for this at least half the time....serve over rice. My family loves it!

And lastly, from Wadaiko-not a full recipe but she sent this idea:

I was thinking about this while cooking dinner here-very boring, yaki-niku...I havent eaten much turkey, but if its anything like chicken, my IDEA is Turkey Balls(mince meat with perhaps cheese in the middle), and served with a white sauce made green with the broccoli.

Sorry I missed this! I probably would have thought of Chicken (excuse me, turkey!) Divan, too -- my girls love it.
