Thanksgiving Leftovers = Quick Comfort Food

Dinner, Recipes - Jennifer - November 27, 2012

The most-used cookbook in my house?  Bisquick Impossibly Easy Pies.  Have you ever done these?  Talk about simple!  You throw all of your ingredients into a pie plate, pour the Bisquick mixture over everything, and bake.  When you pull the concoction out of the oven, the Bisquick “crust” has formed under and over the ingredients, creating a pie.  My kids will eat almost anything I make this way, especially if I give it a funny name to disguise what’s really in there.  In our regular rotation is Cheeseburger Pie and “Piggy Pie” (so-called because it’s made with ham, but they think I call it that because they can’t get enough of it).

So here’s my plan for all those Thanksgiving leftovers hanging out in the fridge:

2 c. leftover turkey, cut up small
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 c. leftover bread stuffing
1/4 c. thinly sliced green onions
1/2 c. cooked green peas
1/2 c. Original Bisquick mix
1 c. milk
2 eggs
Leftover turkey gravy

Heat oven to 400.  Spray 9″ pie plate with cooking spray.  Spread turkey in pie plate, and sprinkle with seasoned salt.  Break stuffing into small pieces, and layer over turkey.  Top with onions and peas (in our case, I’m substituting corn for peas, because that’s what we have leftover).  Combine Bisquick mix, milk and eggs until well blended, and pour over mixture in pie plate.  Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let stand 5 minutes, and serve with gravy if desired.

There are tons more Bisquick recipes on the website.  Have fun!
