Turkey Pot Pie




So on my quest to use up ALL of the Thanksgiving leftovers, I took one of our favorite classics, chicken pie, and swapped in the turkey. This is a delicious recipe. If you want to make it ahead, just make the filling and refrigerate, making the topping the night of dinner and then baking.




Preheat Oven Temperature: 350 degrees

Filling Ingredients:
3 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 Cup Chopped Yellow Onion
1/2 Cup Thinly Sliced Carrots
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
2 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Cups No Salt Added Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup Whole Milk
2 Cups Shredded Cooked Turkey
1 Cup Frozen Peas

Topping Ingredients:
3 Cups Herb Seasoned Stuffing Crumbs
3 Tablespoons Melted Butter
1 Cup No Salt Added Chicken Broth

Preparation Instructions:
1. In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the onions and carrots. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat for 15 minutes or until tender. If the onions appear to be cooking too fast, reduce the heat to medium low. Stir periodically.
2. Add the flour to the pan; stir. Allow the flour to "cook" with the onion and carrots for 2 minutes.
3. SLOWLY add the broth to the pan while stirring. You want to do this slowly in order to avoid lumps.
4. Add the milk to the pan. Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 10 minutes.
5. Add the turkey and peas to the pan. Stir to combine and allow to heat through.
6. In a large mixing bowl, combine the topping ingredients and stir to combine.
7. Place the filling into a 9x9 baking dish that is at least 3 inches deep. Top with you stuffing mix.
8. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
9. Serve while hot.

Banana Zucchini Bread with Raisins and Cinnamon Sugar Swirl

It is that time of year again when I am working to develop new and interesting ways to use up all of the vegetables coming from the garden. Last year, I posted "The Best Zucchini Bread" recipe; this is still a great recipe but this one is even better! Since entering my last trimester of pregnancy, I am craving cinnamon raisin bread. This recipe was created to help merge the two flavors while also adding in some nutrients from bananas, as I always seems to have 2 or 3 that get left over and become a little too ripe. This bread is so fragrant, moist, and delicious! If I had some walnuts in the freezer, I might even finely chop some and incorporate them into the swirl for even more texture. This bread is perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack, or even dessert. I hope you will give this recipe a try. 2 very ripe Bananas, mashed 1 cup Zucchini, grated 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil 1 Egg, beaten 1 teaspoon Vanilla 3/4 cup Sugar 1 teaspoon Baking Soda 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder 1/4 teaspoo…

Poor Man's Ribs: Roasted BBQ Pork Necks

Ok, I know what you are thinking. Pork Necks???? Yes, yes...I was skeptical at first as well. However, as I read about the cut of meat, I found that it was often described as tender and rib-like. So, I decided to give it a try. The cut is much cheaper than any ribs I have been able to find. These turned out fall-off-the-bone and succulent. As my husband said, "This is the poor man's rib." So the next time you are at the store, just step back from what the cut says and just give them a try. They really are delicious!

1/4 Cup Water
3 Tablespoons Sweet/Spicy BBQ Sauce

1. In a small bowl, combine the mustard and seasonings to create a flavor paste. Rub the pork necks with the mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Black-eyed Pea Croquettes

So it is well known that I make Black Bean Burgers all the time. I love the versatility of the recipe and the ability to make a week of lunches in about 15 minutes. Today, I found myself with a bowl of leftover black-eyed peas in the fridge and the desire for something new. This recipe is also great because I always have canned black-eyed peas in the pantry since they are one of my husband's favorite vegetables, which means I can make this recipe anytime. So whether you use leftover homemade, like I did, or canned, this recipe is great. Additionally, these are not coated and fried like traditional croquettes, which makes them an even better option. Enjoy these as a side dish, on a sandwich, or with a side salad for a delicious, healthy, and easy meal. These do not hold or reheat well, so enjoy them while they're hot.
