Turkey Leftover Question

Hi, I don't have much turkey left from dinner...basically just what's left around the bones...dont want to toss it since there's a ton of meat, it's just harder to get to...is there anything I can do with it other than toss it into a pot with water and make a stock or soup?

Thanks! :)

If you can "stand still" for an Emeril Lagasse recipe...whih is in fact pretty damned good...

A half cup of margerine, melted...

a sweet pepper, washed, huled, and diced finely

a medium onion, skinned and diced

2-3 stalks celery, washed and sliced finely...

saute over low heat, and stir in 1/2-3/4 cup of flour, and stir to break the flour up, nicely...

add a couple potato's, skinned and cubed to 3/8' thickness...

add your "scraps of turkey", cut from the remaining carcass...

add your scraps of gravy, and the "concentrated" water of simmering the carcass/bones if the bird for 20-30 minutes, mixing so as to emulsify the flour...this all going into a crock pot or dutch oven, you understand!...

some frozen peas, skinned and chopped carrots...

now cover your Dutch oven with a pie crust, sealing the edges, cut a few vents and ook in the oven a period of 90-120 minutes, and serve...

Regional imaginativeness is of course, allowed...if you have things that are more to your taste, or wish to exchange ground up yams for carrots...

Don't be afraid to "have some fun" with this concept...it works really well...

Sounds like that tureky stuff they feed you on plain flights, is it turkey Tetrazini, or something like that? In any case, there are a thousand turkey caseroles out there that use the same basic method, and each uses a roux of some kind, for mking the gravy.

If you want to get creative with this, make up some pie dough and put the turkey bits, veggies, and gravy into the crust for hoeme-made pot pies.
