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!!

Lola Momma’s Picadillo

My MIL was supposed to come back to the states this month from the Philippines for her annual 3 month stay. But it’s too risky to get on a plane. She’s going to stay home. We miss her so much. So, I made one of my favorite dishes that she makes when she comes. It’s so comforting and sweet. Serve it up over rice and maybe top it with a fried egg. It can be eaten any time of day. Enjoy!

Lola Momma’s Picadillo

  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 4-5 baby Yukon potatoes or 1 large Russet, diced into 1/2″ cubes
  • 1/2 orange or red bell pepper, diced slightly smaller than potatoes
  • 2 carrots, diced into littler cubes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup raisins (I know, trust me)
  • 1,5 – 2 cups water
  • 1 TBSP fish sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar

In a medium pot, begin to brown the ground pork. Add the garlic midway through and cook until pork is no longer pink. Add tomato paste and cook for 1 min. Add potatoes, raisins, carrots and enough water to cover the veggies. Simmer until cooked through adding more water as needed. Add fish sauce and sugar to taste.

Enjoy comfort in a bowl.
