I have a confession to make. I've never made a turkey by myself. (I have warmed up a smoked turkey a few times--does that count?) We always go to my parents' house for Thanksgiving and Mom is the turkey cook! I usually make the homemade rolls and help make the other sides & desserts. Instead of sharing how to make a turkey, I thought I'd share a recipe for what to do with all of the turkey leftovers. My Mom and my Aunt Sandy like to make TURKEY TETRAZINNI with our turkey leftovers, and it is YUMMMMMMMY!
1 (8 oz) pkg thin spaghetti1 small onion (chopped)
2 T. oleo
1 c. broth
1 t. salt
1 t. dry mustard
1/2 t. pepper
1 large can evaporated milk
1 small can sliced mushrooms (we use more)
3 c. diced cooked turkey
1 c. grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 c. parmesan cheese
Cook spaghetti and drain.
While spaghetti is cooking, saute onions in oleo until soft. Remove from heat. Blend in flour, salt, dry mustard, and pepper. Return on low heat. Slowly stir in evaporated milk and broth. Stir constantly until sauce thickens slightly.
Pour white sauce into drained spaghetti. Mix in turkey and mushrooms. Pour everything into a greased 9x13 pan.
Sprinkly cheeses on top. Bake at 425 uncovered for 20 minutes. ENJOY!
