After Xmas Turkey Recipes

What to do with turkey leftovers

A like a good turkey and I do like turkey sandwiches for a couple of days following xmas. However, the kids don't so I have to come up with alternatives for them. They like a good barbecue and pulled pork.....so last year I improvised 'pulled turkey'. This year it has already been pre-demanded as a boxing day meal.

Ingredients:

Turkey - 4 - 6 ounces per portion.
one bread roll for each serving
apple juice - couple of cups, coke or similar works too.
tin of tomato sauce - not the heinz ketchup stuff, proper liquidised stuff in a tin
tub of dessert apple sauce - you could zussz your own apple in a liquidizer, add some sugar.
BBQ sauce - couple or three table spoons
Worcestershire sauce - tablespoon
garlic powder - to suit
pepper - to suit
paprika - to suit
chilli powder - to suit
salt - to suit



Shred the turkey by hand pulling.

Put the apple juice in a frying pan, or saucepan, up to you.

Mix the tin of tomato sauce, apple sauce and all the other bits in a mixing bowl. That makes a nice BBQ sauce base and you can fiddle around with it adding or removing as you see fit. Remember some chilli powder is hot and may not agree - same with some paprikas.

Warm the apple juice on the stove and add the shredded turkey till it is heated through and starts to soften up - you don't need to boil it to death. Then when it is warmed nicely and a bit soggy and tender with most of the apple juice cooked off add enough of the BBQ sauce mix to make it juicy. When it is all warmed through put a portion on each ready sliced roll and scoff ...... chips or bratkartoffeln may be added to make a filling meal.

Anyone else got any?

I recall some programme about the worst jobs in the country, some guy gobbled off turkeys to artificially inseminate the others. Sometimes he got some salty Turkey juice up the pipe. The Turkeys were very excited to see him.

Admit it, that wasn't a documentary.
 
Well I 'kin well like it.
 
I absolutely hate turkey. It is utter cack, but SWMBO insists on it, so now we've got a turkey big enough for 16 people in the freezer. Even though only 10 will be at mine for dinner, sweating over over-filled plates like bourgeois pigs.
I told her I wanted egg and chips but no, turkey it is. Shower of shyte

Agree. I hate the idea that you have to stuff yourself at Christmas.

I'm not much of a fan of turkey either but if I socialise at all - which I'm not this year - then I get jiffed with the cooking. I'd not eat what Mental Pot presented, so the arrangement works well.

Me being me, it's gotta be fresh (even though I object to the price) - it does make a difference. And I refuse to go down the silly feast road so I usually buy the smallest turkey I can. No leftovers to be worrying about and it's not like anyone is left hungry with all the other shite floating about, is it?

I actually suggested Bernard Mathews abused turkey roll like you get in the cookhouse. I actually like that, when I suggested it she looked at me like I'd sh@ on our sleeping children!

Well I'd not want to appear tight at xmas or serve something that only I liked - if it was up to me then I'd either go for something super good like a sirloin or even fillet roast or something a bit unusual. Game of some sort maybe.
