On the Table: Turkey Leftovers

There’s a good chance that you’re staring down a hefty amount of turkey leftovers today. If that’s the case, then think about skipping the straight reheating-route, and whip up something entirely new with the remnants from yesterday’s meal. Check out these options from 2013 Austin FOOD & WINE featured chefs Andrew Zimmern, Marc Murphy and Susan Feniger.

Marc Murphy’s Turkey Shepherd’s Pie

If you’d rather enjoy a new take on an old classic, then try Marc Murphy’s Turkey Shepherd’s Pie. All you need is what you probably already have — turkey, stuffing, gravy, chicken stock, mashed potatoes and cheese. Just serve with some cranberries for Thanksgiving Round 2.

Susan Feniger’s Turkey Tamales

While these turkey tamales with cranberry salsa might seem a little more time intensive than your typical leftover-based meal, Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken show you how simple they actually are. Spice up your leftovers and give them a shot!
