Modern Homecooking with a Midwestern Heart

Well, we got through it. We knew it would be different this year, and it definitely was, but it was still a great day. I’m very thankful.

Next stop: Leftovers for days. I hope you can put your extra turkey to work with some of my favorite recipes like turkey noodle soup, turkey tetrazzini, and turkey pot pie. And if you held on to your turkey carcass, there’s a delicious recipe for turkey broth, too. Make it, freeze it, and marvel at how good your upcoming soups, gravies, and casseroles taste.

Discover my full line-up of Thanksgiving Leftover recipes.
