Left Over Turkey (merged)

I made this dish and it was good . Comes from paula Dean
http://www.foodnetwork.com/food/reci..._28829,00.html I have made it twice and It would work good with turkey. Also I used regluar rice the second time and was good. If you don't like pimentoes I would use red pepper and saute it with the onions.

Thanks!! Think I'll try that one with Thanksgiving leftovers this year. Only thing I'll probably change will be to sub Cream of Mushroom soup for the Cream of Celery (hubby is a big-time celery hater, so why torture him - lol!!!).

Letscook, pimentoes ARE red peppers. They are heart-shaped and the flesh is very thick and meaty. They only difference is that they have been canned.
That's a good looking recipe...I actually have that saved in my recipe files, although I haven't tried it yet.
Breezy, you could also substitute Cream of Chicken soup.

Constance, I think what she meant is that some people don't care for the canned/jarred pimientos. I use both depending on what I'm making, but I do know that some people just don't like the taste/texture of the jarred red peppers, in which case in this recipe sauteeing fresh diced red peppers would work just as well.

Hi All,

I'm a newbie here. Looks like a great site!

I'm wondering if I could substitute something for all that mayo. I could use low fat. Has anyone tried it that way. And less cheese. Bless Paula. Everything is soooo good but sooo fattening.

Thanks everyone.

I think you could go with the low fat mayo - just not the no fat mayo. You could also use the 2% cheese. It wouldn't be as creamy but it would still work.

It's just plain hard to get a casserole on the healthy side! LOL

My SIL uses Healthy Request "cream of" soups in her casseroles too. That helps a little.

Welcome to the site.

As for leftovers, I saw this on foodnetwork this morning. I love frittata's and this one uses leftover stuffing.

Thanksgiving sandwich! That's the only leftover you should ever eat after thanksgiving! It's defintely one of my favorites, and I look forward to it every year, nearly as much as Thanksgiving itself.

I find a good bit of difference between pimentos and red peppers (as in red bell peppers). They (pimentos) are a different variety of red sweet peppers (as Constance said) and quite different in taste to me.
We love pimento cheese--very popular in the south--and it is usually made with the canned pimentos. But it is SO good made with roasted red bell peppers also. Roasted red peppers are also available canned, of course.

I think the sauteed reds would be nice also. I often think pimentos are added to dishes like this (VERY popular to do in the South--this is a Paula recipe) more for color than flavor.
