Speaking of oblong casseroles . . .
Even when time isn't short (or leftovers plentiful), I'm a fan of
one-pot meals ...
No traditional "sides," mind you, just salad, bread, and tea.
Leftover turkey (or chicken) is a time-saver for the frazzled foodie--all you need is one pot, salad, and bread.
Make your own scraps! Yes, indeedy. A deli chicken is an easy way to transform basic stuffing into an effortless meal.
Confession: I even love this cold. I love it better if I'm barefoot, wearing a flannel granny gown, and standing in front of the fridge.
But a plate from Big Lots will do, too, because Frazzled Foodies often suffer from Tablescaping Fetishes.
It's highly incurable, of course.
Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix
Artesian bread cubes (deli leftovers)
chopped onions, bell peppers, green onions, celery
1 stick unsalted butter
2 large eggs
salt, pepper, Tabasco (if desired)
Debone chicken. Sautee vegetables in 1 stick unsalted butter. Add to stuffing and chicken. Add chicken stock ("eyeball it," as Rachel Ray says). Cool a little, then add beaten eggs. Season. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
The winner of last week's tray is Mari at Once Upon a Plate.
I hope everyone has a delightful, food-filled Thanksgiving. If you're new to Foodie Friday, here's a TUTORIAL. For those who wish to participate in this week's recipe exchange, please add your recipe and permalink:
