You made it! After weeks of intensive shopping and slaving over holiday meals, it’s time to kick your feet up and relax. If you’re anything like us, your fridge and freezer are stuffed with leftovers that you just can’t bear to see go to waste, but let’s face it; a person can only eat so many turkey sandwiches.
So, we came up with a few easy recipes to repurpose those leftovers into something entirely new, delicious and simple!
Take-Two Turkey Grilled Cheese
Makes 1 to 2 Servings
- 1/4 pound cooked turkey, sliced
- 2 slices of bread of your choice
- 1 small wedge Brie cheese
- 1 cup fresh arugula
- Apple butter
- Fill grill with Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal and light.
- Generously spread butter on one side of the bread slices.
- Spread apple butter on the other side of the bread slices.
- Thinly slice the Brie and place on top of the apple butter (on one bread slice or both, depending on your desired level of cheesiness).
- On top of Brie, layer turkey slices and arugula, placing sliced bread on top (apple butter side down, buttered side up).
- Once coals are ashed over, put sandwich on the grill. Buttered side down (If needed, a cast-iron skillet or foil covered brick placed on top of sandwich can help to keep things in place).
- Grill until bread is brown and crispy. Then flip to opposite side.
- Once Brie has fully melted, remove from grill, slice into two halves and serve with a cup of hot soup!
Grilled Potato Pancakes
Makes 4 to 6 Servings
- 2 cups mashed potatoes, chilled
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
- 1 cup sour cream (optional)
- Applesauce and fruit (optional)
- Fill one side of grill with Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal (leaving the other side empty) and light.
- Add all ingredients to a large bowl and mix until well combined.
- Taking about 1/2 cup of mixture, form into a patties about 4” in diameter.
- Once coals are ashed over, lay down a large piece of foil on the grate, opposite the hot coals, where you’ll be grilling your pancakes.
- Place patties on the foil and grill each side for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until cakes are fairly firm.
- Once cakes are firm enough to filp without falling apart, remove the foil and grill them directly on the grill grates until outside is brown and crispy.
- Flip and cook until inside is cooked through.
- Remove cakes from grill and if you’d like, you can top them with applesauce, fruit and/or sour cream. Enjoy!
- These are especially tasty served alongside bacon or ham.
