Roasted Mushroom Asparagus Farro uses the ancient farro, that adds fiber, and protein, in a rice shaped grain with a chewy, nutty flavor. Paired with roasted mushrooms, asparagus, thyme and a touch of red pepper for heat this healthy bowl is one for the books.
My first recipe using farro was back in 2015. Salmon Farro Salad was really delicious and healthy. Whole grain was just coming into the spotlight, and I made several recipes using farro (I will link more at the end of the post). Continue reading “Roasted Mushroom Asparagus Farro”
Turkey day is over, and you are exhausted from all that Black Friday shopping. What to cook?? OK, what to do with all those leftovers? Leftover Turkey Shepards Loaf to the rescue.Having leftovers is admittedly the best part of any holiday, but Thanksgiving in particular.
Traditional turkey day fare goes together. Stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, and of course the star of the show….turkey! Throw in a veggie or two and day two of the turkey coma!
Leftover Turkey Shepards Loaf combines all of the leftovers in one dish that’s easy to prepare and easy to serve. Layer after layer of Thanksgiving leftovers. No need to heat all the leftovers separately and then try to find containers to place the leftover, leftovers.
If you plan ahead, you can assemble this loaf as you are putting away your turkey day meal, so all you have to do is bake according to the recipe…easy right?
Now that you have the leftovers taken care of, you can enjoy quality time with your family.
2 cups leftover stuffing
1/2 cup cranberry sauce
1/2 cup vegetable ( whatever you have leftover)
2 cups roasted turkey, shredded
2 cups turkey gravy, divided
2 cups mashed potatoes
1/3 cup crispy onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
Layer the first four ingredients in the order listed, pressing each layer firmly.
Add 1 cup of turkey gravy over ingredients in the loaf pan.
Top with mashed potatoes. I use a pastry bag with a large tip and decoratively piped the potatoes, but you can spread them over the top.
Sprinkle the top of the potatoes with the crispy onions.
Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour until heated through and the potatoes are golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to set for 10 minutes.
Heat remaining 1 cup of turkey gravy.
To serve sliced loaf and pass the remaining gravy.
