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).

Sprouts Foo Young

Sprouts Foo Young ******* For each pancake:   2 eggs Grapeseed oil or ghee 1 C sprouts (alfalfa, sunflower, mung bean) 1 small clove garlic, minced ¼ C chopped green onion tops 1 tsp freshly grated ginger (or pinch of ground ginger) ½ to 1 tsp Braggs amino sauce (like soy sauce) Optional:  add shrimp or fresh crab meat to step #1 Add a bit of oil in a small skillet.  Over medium heat sautee garlic, ginger and green onion tops.  Do not brown the garlic—that will make it bitter. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk eggs until light and fluffy.  Whisk in Braggs. When garlic is fragrant, add a bit more oil, then add sprouts, give them a stir or two (to mix with garlic, etc.), and pour egg over all.  Cook like an omelette, or flip like a pancake to brown on both sides.  

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
