Lucky me, I received this for Christmas:
It is the grinder attachment for my KitchenAid Mixer! Well I watched a few videos online and decided to give it a whirl.
Which got me thinking about making this:
|Didn’t occur to me to take a picture before we dug in!|
Christmas dinner was pretty much a Thanksgiving repeat. We had turkey, stuffing, potatoes, green bean casserole, you get the drift. As of today, I was done with those leftovers. I’m not saying they were all gone, I was just done eating them as is.
I plugged in my grinder attachment and put the rest of the turkey in. From two full drumsticks came about two pounds of shredded turkey! I was quite surprised.
I put half in the bottom of my pie dish (the rest is in the freezer for when I am ready for turkey again). Added some powdered gravy mix to a little over a cup of chicken broth and poured over the meat. I topped that with the remainder of the green bean casserole, a wee little bit of the stuffing and topped the entire thing with mashed potatoes. Bake in a 350 degree oven for a half hour.
I should’ve grabbed more pictures but I wasn’t really thinking about blogging it. That is until I tasted it! I have always loved shepherds pie. If I have left over taters, I usually will make it. This was a different twist and it turned out pretty darn tasty!
How about you, have you made any accidental, really good recipes lately? I’d love to hear about them!
