With all that leftover turkey from this year’s Thanksgiving I knew I had to do a totally yummy leftover recipe – and what better leftover than something from the south? 😉
It’s what’s for dinner this week!
Gather up some kielbasa, bell pepper (I used green), celery, white onion, couple cloves of garlic. Chop everything else up except the garlic – this we mince 🙂
Next, in a big pot on medium heat, stir in butter with flour every 30 seconds for 10 minutes until the mixture turns into a peanut butter-like color.
Add everything from the first step including some diced tomatoes (canned is okay), along with a bay leaf, and some oregano & thyme.
Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 1 hour.
Lookin’ good! 🙂
After an hour, put in some sliced okra.
Cook the okra for a couple of minutes, in the meantime shred the leftover turkey meat.
Add into the pot!
Add some white rice into a bowl, then serve gumbo on top.
And there you have it folks! A simple but delicious fixer-upper of your turkey leftovers!
Stay tuned for next’s weeks: It’s What’s For Dinner Part 8!
