Recipe News: Recipe - Turkey Quiche Pot Pie

If you're like me, when you think about Thanksgiving dinner, you probably anticipate the leftovers as much as the meal itself. Take advantage of the seasonal sales and buy a turkey even if you have Thanksgiving dinner elsewhere, or buy an extra if you have the freezer space. Turkey can replace chicken in many recipes, and it's a wonderful addition to soups and casseroles. You can freeze cooked boned turkey, in portions by wrapping in aluminum foil and sealing in a freezer bag, then thaw and chop what you need for a recipe. Browning the turkey bones is one of the secrets to an extra-tasty broth--well worth a few extra steps. Make the broth right away, and then freeze in 1-cup portions for up to 6 months. Use it for cooking rice, in casseroles, in sauces, and as a base for soups.

  • Turkey Broccoli Quiche

  • Turkey Pot Pie

Recipe News: Turkey Soup Recipes From Leftover Turkey

There are many turkey sour recipes that one can make from leftover turkey and that are also healthy and delicious. Not only Turkey soup but also turkey broth recipes.

Many cooks and families are left with leftover turkeys after the Thanksgiving Holiday and making healthy turkey soup or broth may be a good idea for a family meal.

Here are few turkey soup and broth recipes and ideas from leftover turkey.

Simply Recipes says "Prepare the turkey soup much as you would a chicken soup. With your stock already made, add chopped carrots, onions, and celery in equal parts. Add some parsley, a couple cloves of garlic. You can add rice, noodles, or even leftover mashed potatoes (or not if you want the low carb version). Take some of the remaining turkey meat you reserved earlier, shred it into bite sized pieces and add to the soup. You may also want to add some chopped tomatoes, either fresh or canned. Add seasoning - poultry seasoning, sage, thyme, marjoram and/or a bouillion cube. Add salt and pepper to taste."

Food News: As turkey day approaches, health specialists urge Americans to reduce salt intake

Thinking of taking those processed shortcuts for your Thanksgiving feast? Think again.
...the average American consumes between 3,300 and 4,000 milligrams of sodium a day. Thanksgiving dinner can easily reach those limits. Stuffing can harbor up to 600 milligrams of sodium a serving, plus 300 for gravy. If you bought the salt-added turkey, plan on 490 milligrams. A biscuit can mean 350, although a dinner roll might have half that. Pumpkin pie does not seem salty, but one popular brand has 300 milligrams a slice. Cooking from scratch can slash those numbers. Homemade cornbread for stuffing, for example, has little salt, and there are reduced-sodium broths for gravy.

Recipe News: TASTE THE BEST: You'll love these delightful pear recipes

What is juicy and sweet and a good source of vitamin C? If you guessed pears, you would be correct.

According to whfoods.com, pears are delicious fruits that are related to the apple and the quince. While there are thousands of varieties of pears with each differing in size, shape, color, taste and storage qualities, the Bosc, Bartlett, Anjou and Comice pears are the most commonly available types in the United States. Varieties such as Conference, Passe Crassane and Packham, which are popular in other countries, are also becoming more widely available.

Pears generally have a large round bottom that tapers towards the top. Depending upon the variety, their paper-thin skins can either be yellow, green, brown, red or a combination of two or more of these colors. The white to cream-colored flesh of pears is very juicy and sweet, while their textures are soft and buttery, yet slightly grainy. Like apples, pears have a core that features several seeds.

Pears have many health-related benefits with them. They are a good source of vitamin C, copper and is high in fiber, which can lower high cholesterol levels and is good news to people at risk for atherosclerosis or diabetic heart disease.
