Turkey, Potato & Gravy Bake


Gwen’s Turkey, Potato & Gravy Bake
 *******

Thanksgiving leftovers? This is our favorite way to have a delicious dinner with Thanksgiving dinner leftovers.  Hopefully you still have some fresh cranberry sauce around.  Some leftover rolls don't hurt either.

3-4 C leftover turkey (not
6-8 C turkey-mushroom gravy
10 C mashed potatoes with skin on (new potatoes or Russet)
Rosemary sprig, fresh

1.     Preheat oven to 350ºF.  Shred turkey by hand into bite-sized pieces. 
2.     Put turkey pieces in a deep oven safe 9x13-inch baking casserole dish.
3.     Cover turkey with 2-cups of the gravy (this moistens the turkey during baking).
4.     Dollop spoonful’s of mashed potatoes in an even layer over the turkey and gravy.  Press just enough to make potatoes come together so there are no gaps, but leave the potato surface fairly mountainous and bumpy to hold the top layer of gravy.
5.     Cover with remaining gravy and cover casserole tightly with tin foil.
6.     Bake for 25 minutes.  Remove tin foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until golden and bubbling.  Remove from oven and garnish with a sprig of rosemary.

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

Challa Bread

Challa Bread *******  Makes 2 loaves My neighbor, Bonnie, grew up with a Jewish friend and learned to love their family traditions, songs and the Hebrew language. Every Sunday she taught our Mormon young women a lot about the Hebrew alphabet and about many Jewish traditions (I was a teacher in Young Women so I got to hear her lessons). Even though she didn't talk about food, her lessons gave me the nudge to learn how to make something I'd always wanted to try . . . challa bread.  Check out h ow to braid a six-strand challa .

Pumpkin Pie-Coconut Cream Ice Cream

Pumpkin Pie Ice Cream Makes 1 quart I spy some dietary restrictions in my future. The doctor’s verdict will be in within a month, so I was hoping that some of the few remaining approved edibles (including coconut) could turn out something muy bueno. They did. This ice cream is excelente. The gingersnap cookies won’t be an option for the Paleo eater at the table, but everyone else will love them.  Modified from the nourishing gourmet
