Thanksgiving Leftovers – Turkey Silog

You guys! I am congratulating myself and slapping my thighs over this masterpiece of a recipe I just mashed together with Thanksgiving leftovers. Make this now.

Turkey Silog

  • 4-6 cloves of garlic, peeled and smashed a bit
  • 3 Tbsp veggie oil
  • 2 cups cooked, day old jasmine rice
  • 2 cups leftover turkey, about half a breast and some dark meat, shredded
  • 1 cup leftover stuffing
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup leftover gravy
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • A couple shakes of red chili flakes
  • Fried eggs
  • Lemon slices
  • Sriracha

On a cutting board, mix turkey, garlic salt, chili flakes, soy sauce, a squeeze of lemon, stuffing and gravy. Set aside.

This is a 3 pan adventure – small, medium, and large.

In the large pan, heat the oil and garlic until the garlic starts getting soft and slightly brown. Smash up the garlic with a spatula until it’s in little pieces.

Pour 1/2 the oil and garlic into the medium pan.

In the large pan, add the cooked rice and heat up with the remaining oil and garlic. Set aside.

Heat the medium pan over medium high heat. Add the turkey mixture and fry until crispy on each side.

In the small pan, fry your egg.

Sever together with sriracha and a slice of lemon.

Enjoy!!

Making Room In the Fridge For Thanksgiving

We often have remnants of veggie odds and ends in our crisper. I’ll usually make a quick soup with the veggies, broth and some thyme and oregano. It’s a family staple. But I thought I’d try something new since I also had a bunch of eggs from the girls (our chickens).

This is also a quick meal you can prepare in the “week before Thanksgiving” calm.

Cleaning the kitchen frittata

Egg and Veggie Frittata (kinda)

  • 4-5 eggs, beaten
  • Any veggies cut into bite sized pieces (I used broccolini, cabbage, leeks, peas and zucchini) Leeks are really good in this.
  • 3 TBSP goat cheese (chevre)
  • 1 TBSP butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat butter in a large non-stick pan. Add all your veggies and cook until just tender. Reduce the temperature to medium/low. Add the eggs and goat cheese. Move the bottom of the eggs around so they begin to cook through (but don’t stir). Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Flip the egg mixture and cook until fluffy.

Enjoy with a nice salad or toasted bread!
