It's that time of year again.
Thanksgiving has come and gone. You've already had reheated turkey twice, and you just cannot even think of having it a third and last time… Look no further, this is an awesome new way to use your Thanksgiving leftovers.
Here's how I made this delicious chowder out of my leftovers :)
INGREDIENTS (2-3 people):
- leftover turkey meat, shredded or diced
- 1/2 to 1 cup leftover gravy, but feel free to use more or less according to what you have left!
- 4 to 8 cups chicken, vegetable or turkey broth, depending on how thick you want the chowder to be (I used chicken bouillon, since that is what I had on hand)
- 1 large carrot, 1 medium onion and a few branches of celery, diced finely in a mirepoix
- kernels from 2 ears of fresh corn
- 1/4 cup AP flour
- 2 tbsp butter
- a sprig of thyme
- in a deep skillet, stockpot or dutch oven, melt the butter and saute the carrot, onion and celery over medium heat until soft
- make a roux by adding the flour and cook it over low heat for a couple of minutes
- add the gravy and broth and stir over medium-low heat until thickened, then add the corn kernels and the shredded/sliced turkey meat and stir until well combined
- bring to a simmer over low heat for a few minutes, or until warmed through
- serve hot alongside a nice thick slice of grilled sourdough or buttered cornbread
