How do I turn leftover cooked turkey breast into something that Os and Bs can eat for dinner? I have plenty of onions, frozen broccolli, and frozen green beans in the house, spices, and rice, but we're out of rice pasta and broth (so I can't make a gravy.)

A stirfry of the  turkey cut in tiny bits and veggies, plus rice with some spices beneficial for all of us ?, my quicker idea. The longer one mix all with some kind of roux  (or bechamel) and in the owen on a large pan until nearly blond ? in this last I'd like nutmeg.
hope it helps and you all enjpy

Ruth,

My family is not a fan of dry leftover turkey breast meat.  I found this recipe which works for O's but I'm not sure for B's :  http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Turkey-Chili-350651  This recipe turns it into a completely different meal that doesn't seem like leftovers.

Maybe sub sweet potato in for tomatoes plus a compliant citrus juice to replace the tomato juice? If you don't have bell pepper, I'm sure your broccoli or green beans would be fine.  I only use 1/4 tsp of chipotle powder so it's not spicy and if you don't have it, the recipe is fine without it.

I use this lemon sauce on any leftover turkey.  It's fabulous over rice or noodles.

I just eat it.  Warm it up, put a little oil on it, eat it with some veggies if it's dry.  Throwing it in soup would work too.

Wow mine can never get enough of any turkey I would've thought the breast meat would be the least dry of all parts? How do you cook it?
I can't make myself pay for breast fillets ($NZ24 a kg or $NZ48 a lb) when the other parts - top of wing or thighs - are less than 1/3 of that price (admittedly with bone in but still more economical & in my opinion tastier)
We just cook ours in the crock pot (no water needed) or would you believe a rice cooker with some water & its made a superb gravy when the timer goes off
Ruth - you could reheat yours either of those ways, with added moisture & you would get some stock to make gravy

I ended up making dairy tonight: rice pasta, leftover tomato sauce, broccolli with ghee, onion/carrot/mushroom sautee, ricotta cheese, shredded mozzarella cheese, and lentils. DS had pasta and cheese, DD2 had pizza toast and some broccolli, DD1 mixed everything together, I had the pasta with lentils, veggies, and ricotta cheese.

I'm not sure yet what I'll do with the leftover turkey, but I'm saving it for another time. We're making a fresh turkey boob and leg for Shabbos tomorrow, so I may combine the two sets of leftovers on Sunday night.

Put some chopped turkey, spices, rice and vegetables in a pot with some water, it'll make it's own broth as it cooks...  We made turkey, rice and vegetables with water and some spices and it turned out delicious.

Possum,  I've never much cared for the white meat on turkey or chicken!!  Might be the texture????  or maybe flavor??   I never buy ground turkey breast, always dark

I buy the ground dark meat of turkey, too, not the breast.  I like the darker color for chili or whatever, and it is not as expensive.  I prefer the flavor of the dark meat to that of the light, but I like both.  Yesterday, I thought I was buying a turkey thigh in the grocery store, but I had forgotten my glasses and bought a "boob" instead!  I couldn't read the prices on the labels either.    Now I have leftover turkey, too.  I like to make a stir fry with onion, shredded carrots & parsnips, freshly grated ginger, a few red pepper flakes, leftover rice, turkey, and whatever green veggies I have, fresh or leftover.  Sometimes I use fresh spinach leaves, sometimes peas.  Anyway, that is my favorite stir fry.  One time I added cranberries and chopped pecans.

Make a little salad with compliant mayo and either curry or cranberry.  Just had some for lunch (with cranberry) on some black rice bread toasted.....delicious and filling.

I can understand that - the white meat definitely needs some *moisture* with it... Possibly where the tradition of cranberry sauce (& gravy) came into its own Most meat needs something with it - salad, sauce, etc etc Hmmm... now I am hungry for turkey & I didn't put it on to cook last night *sigh*

Has anyone else tried blogger Suzanne's turkey and millet casserole?  I did, and I really liked it.  I fed some to my mother who has Alzheimer's/Dementia; and she even ate it.  I found the turkey breast to be very moist; and it stayed that way, until it was all gone.  I did, however, use millet grits instead of whole millet; because that's all I had.

I didn't know Alzheimer's patients don't usually eat turkey (or millet?)

Yup, it was on the shelf at Trader Joe's, like it usually is.

Last week's leftover turkey breast went into turkey soup for Friday night, and the leftover turkey breast in my fridge now is only 2 days old. I'm planning to cook it tonight; either stir- fry (an "old standby" that nobody was in the mood for last week) or perhaps I'll make a chili, or maybe just heat it up and make some fresh side dishes for it. But we need meat tonight (haven't had it in a few days) and the ground beef won't thaw in time. That's for tomorrow's dinner.

I found some quinoa/rice pasta (the only ingredients) at WFs and mixed it with pesto, a little goat's milk cheddar, the last of my leftover turkey breast and some vine ripened small tomatoes.  It was delicious.  I've done so many things with the turkey that was left over.  I put some in soup, a took some to work with a curry and compliant mayo on baby spinach.  I also made a dressing out of cranberry sauce that I made and the mayo another day.

Last night, I made a sweet and sour sauce, heated up the leftover turkey, plus made brown rice, sweet potatoes (leftovers), broccolli, and green beans. We served the sauce over the turkey. We have quite a bit of sauce left over, so later this week I plan to thaw out some raw turkey breast, coat the pieces in seasoned rice flour, fry in olive oil, and serve the sauce with "turkey nuggets."

Mmmm, all this is giving me an idea for chinese style home made sauce for our turkey, using tinned plums (in juice if there is such a thing) and soy sauce, garlic, maybe onion (no chillis cos A but O's could add chilli too). Slurp!
