We're Talking Thanksgiving Food, Recipes And Ideas For Leftovers

Thanksgiving Food.

This week on Noon Edition we will discuss Thanksgiving food recipes.

Earth Eats' Annie Corrigan and a panel of food experts join hosts Bob Zaltsberg and Mary Catherine Carmichael to talk about their favorite recipes and, perhaps more importantly, ideas for how to use those tasty Thanksgiving leftovers.

This week's episode is pre-recorded.

Tune in Friday for some delicious recipes. In the meantime, here are a couple to tide you over:

Aaron's Turkey Pot Pie


Diced turkey

Left over veggies (green bean casserole is fine)

Turkey gravy


(Makes Enough For a Double Crust 9" Pie)

2 c. flour

2/3 c. shortening or lard

½ tsp. salt

Cut in shortening and salt well before adding…

6 tbs. of ice cold water

I fluff lightly with a fork between each two tbs. water added. Then cut to mix watered portions of dough with non-watered portion of dough. This is the point where you can overwork the dough and risk getting cardboard. Roll out, cut into desired shapes to cook and set on top of individual servings. Or, put in pie shell and cook at 450 until done (barely browning on edges) to then fill with warmed filling. Put in the oven to warm thoroughly. I would put an already cooked round of pie crust on top before serving to avoid the doughyness (yeah, that's a word). I think individual portions cooked in their own bowls have love baked into each one.
