Leftovers are the best part of any holiday. Feel free to disagree, of course, but I’d rather have a hot turkey sandwich than a hot turkey dinner. Yeah, I probably lost some people there. Here in Canada, we just wrapped up Thanksgiving. And now, households across the country have the same problem – an excess of turkey. And while that is one of those good problems to have, I know from personal experience you can eat too many turkey sandwiches. A few days after a major holiday, it’s totally normal to want something that in no way resembles a festive meal. That’s why I like to take what remains of the day and turn it into a dish like these Charred Poblano Turkey Enchiladas.
I don’t know about you, but after a few evenings of holiday dinner leftovers, I want anything but. Unfortunately, holiday leftovers rarely run out before my interest does. And that’s why I’m always thinking up new and interesting ways to completely transform the remains of the day. I want whatever I make with my leftovers to bear almost no resemblance to its former self. Case in point – these Leftover Turkey Samosas with Cranberry Chutney.
I’ve got a quick recipe for you today. And although I say “recipe” it’s really more of a concept. With the holidays approaching, we are all about to be inundated with family members, gifts, and leftovers. I know, leftovers are by far the least glamorous aspect of the holiday season but they are a reality we all have to grapple with. So, allow me to show you how best to grapple with leftover ham – Ham and Kimchi Quesadillas with Pomegranate Guacamole.
