Turkey Alfredo - Comfort Food Recipe - Turkey Leftover Solution
Hope your Thanksgiving was grand! Mine certainly was. Especially the Thanksgiving part. I love my family and cherish every minute. Every meal with them is a gift. We are small, but have an enormous amount of love. I am enjoying now. I have seen my son grow into a man, who is already wise beyond his years, and yet is funny and lighthearted at the same time. Time flies and all we get is now, so that is what I am thankful for. I always get philosophical and nostalgic on holidays.
We did my Brandy Brine Turkey this year and I am so glad. It was wonderful, and my absolute favorite way to eat turkey. Now for the leftovers. Here is my answer. Turkey Alfredo! So easy!
8 oz. Sharp Cheddar Goat Cheese grated
2 1/2 T. Regular All Purpose Flour
2 c. Chicken Broth
1 1/2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp. Ground Cloves
2 c. Cooked Turkey Meat cut into bite size pieces
8 oz. Frozen Peas (thawed)
Toss the cheese and flour together in a bowl and set aside. Heat the broth on medium heat till steaming, not boiling, and add the mustard, onion powder, garlic powder, and cloves. Add the cheese one handful at a time, whisking after each addition until it is melted. Continue whisking until thick. Stir in turkey and peas. Heat until warmed through. Serve immediately over pasta.
