Leftover Turkey Recipe.
Hope all of my readers who celebrate Thanksgiving enjoyed a lovely day! We had the traditional meal here with my folks. Good company, good food, good memories. Of course, one of the side benefits of having a large, traditional feast are the leftovers. It’s an excuse to eat that piece of pumpkin pie with your morning coffee (guilty as I type!). True fact: I had a moment of panic in the middle of the night that I accidentally forgot the extra gravy on top of the stove.
Oh! All that delicious gravy gone to waste!
Blessedly, the gravy had been neatly tucked away between the many tupperware containers packed in the fridge. Whew! Relief!
What are your favorite ways to use up your Thanksgiving leftovers?
This 1881 turkey leftover recipe calls for oysters – and oyster liquor – which is not a food I would typically associate with leftover turkey. But it sounds wonderful! You’ll also find the requisite grated nutmeg.
