So everyone has been there. You open the fridge after Thanksgiving or Christmas and find all the bits no one has finished off.
This is what I did.
1 cup of gravy or whatever is left over
1 cup parsnips/turnip/carrots
1/2 cup cream/regular corn
4-6 cups of mashed potatoes
4-6 cups of liquid
water/broth/consomme (equal to the amount of potato)OR milk for creamier
Now I put everything in the pot on med heat and mashed together (I used a emulsion mixer)be careful if you have used milk as it burns easier! i mixed in:
1/2 head of par cooked cauliflower florets or brocolli florets
1 cup of peas
and 2 cups of ham cubes or turkey cubes
Stir and pour into a crock pot.
Now take the leftover stuffing (if there is any) and cut into cubes. About the size of croutons! Place on a cookie sheet and bake until crispy.
Serve your turkey day croutons with your cream of leftovers soup!
