A Thanksgiving Recipe From My Home

Before The Thanksgiving Meal
The one thing I do miss about this time of year, is traveling to western North Carolina and consuming mass quantities of my step mother's cooking. She was *the* best, bar none, in the kitchen. Myra could have been a gourmet cook easily. She tried to teach me her ways in the kitchen but too no avail. Poor dear went prematurily grey from it! I'm hopeless. But I managed to save some of her recipes after she passed away in January 2004.

Below is one of her receipes that was absolutely to die for ... not literally, of course. Sweetie fixes it nearly every year (good thing he can cook or I'd starve). I thought I would share it with my bloggy buddies since we'll all be knee deep in turkey leftovers after Thursday, searching for some way to 'dispose' of all that yummy turkey! This is one tasty way that we use up those tasty remainders.

Myra's Pie Pan Turkey
2 cups chopped turkey
1 1/2 cups diced onions
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
4 1/2 ozs mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups skim milk
3/4 cup Bisquick
3 eggs

Combine topping ingredients first, let sit. Combine turkey, onions, cheese, mushrooms and seasonings in large baking dish. Pour topping over turkey mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.

What we'll all look like after the meal!!
"Oh MY goodness, I am soooo stuffed!!"
Do you have any receipes for using leftover turkey or whatever? Share it here or at your blogs. I'm sure we'll be all ears!

My favorite Thanksgiving recipe isn't a food but a drink: Festive Cranberry Martinis

Surely that's what the pilgrims had in mind...

You just reminded me to thaw the bird today! Then it goes in the brine...

Ohhh ... an adult drink ... alright! You're my kinda folks! Thanks for the recipe. I'm kinda partial to Rum or Beer, but I'll try any adult beverage once.

Sorry for the delay in posting. Traveled to Brunswick this AM for a much needed pain shot in my right shoulder. The shot hurts like stink but in a day or two I'll be right as rain.

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!! :o) ♥ ∞

This sounds good. Unfortunately I rarely have much turkey left over. My mom-in-law does the turkey and they don't always leave the left overs! but I make Parker House Rolls from scratch and they are just about right with a little slice of turkey for a tiny "next day" sandwich!

What a splendid idea. Take tiny turkey left overs and pile them on a bun or roll and make a sandwich. Absolutely scrumptious! Thanks for sharing. :o) ♥ ∞

Ya know, Sparky..we were discussing on moving to Brunswick, but, hubby wants to be closer to Chattanooga (were almost 3 hrs now)..not sure where we will end up. I hope you get to feeling better. Blessings and Happy Thanksgiving.

We make turkey ~add a touch of s/p, a schmeer of cranberry sauce and a schmeer of cream cheese sandwiches. Yummo! Thanks for the posting the recipe! Great idea, as you usually have! I hope your shot is helping! Perhaps a cortizon type?

Hi Linda, Brunswick is a nice town. If you move there, just be sure to park yourselves away from downtown. B'wick has a Hercules stump grinder plant there that is stinky .... PU!

Hi Janeen, That sounds soooo good! YUM! I'm gonna make those cream cheese sandwiches.
The shot is helping (thanks for asking). It's not cortizon, it's something that sounds like "Kennel Log" but isn't spelled that way, of course. It's smarts like fire going in and takes about 2 days to take effect. It's worth it though.

Happy Thanksgiving Y'all!! ♥ ∞
