Give the Turkey the Day Off

Posted on by Mary Hunt in Food & Recipes 4 Comments

Turkey leftovers are my favorite. The possibilities for amazing turkey dishes are endless. But let’s face it, it’s nice to take a little break from turkey over this long weekend.

When eMeals sent me this recipe, I wanted to run right home and make it. It combines two things I love: lasagna and soup. But who would have thought of Lasagna Soup? eMeals that’s who, and I love it! It’s easy, hearty and uses ingredients that are a staple in my pantry.

But if you’re on a turkey blitz this weekend, just save this recipe for next week. I know you’re going to enjoy it anytime.

    Turkey and sausage gumbo

    In my opinion, nothing beats a thick turkey sandwich on whole grain bread, with mayo and cranberry sauce. Next best is just reheating leftover turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy. I deliberately cook enough to insure these leftovers.
