Three Alternate Ideas for Turkey Leftovers

If you're tired of turkey sandwiches on Black Friday, here are three quick ideas for more "international" ways to cook up your leftovers...

1. Break up nice chunks of turkey by hand and fry them in a pan with Korean kimchi. I personally prefer using cabbage kimchi, cut into bite-size pieces with scissors. Serve over rice.

2. Shred the leftover turkey and mix it with shredded pepperjack cheese and minced garlic. Stuff into whole cubanelle peppers after removing just the tops. I use a grapefruit spoon. Let them then sit in the fridge for a few hours to harden. Take out and grill or bake till the peppers blister and the cheese melts.

3. Fry bite-sized cubes of turkey with olive oil, diced onion and chopped garlic. In a separate pan, heat some dry white wine then add in heavy cream and a few pinches of coarse black pepper. Reduce till it thickens into a sauce. Add in the turkey you fried. Then mix in penne al dente and saute it all on low heat for a couple minutes.

Anyone got any other simple, original ideas? Please share.

Sorry for interrupting your blog, but I am looking forward to the collection of your Wonderlost comics. Any news on that? Is it out yet? I can't find a site where I can order a copy.

Sliced long and thin, the turkey that is. Some green onions roughly the same same size. Some garlic, the big cloves whole (their not as strong). Stir fry it all in some red miso, thinned with a little shoyu, and a little sugar added while frying to make it all caramelized. Nice with rice or dropped on top of a bowl of cooked ramen ;0)
