My mom has a HUGE drawer in her kitchen full of recipes that she has saved over the years. Some are from her mom, some are from my dad’s mom, many are recipes that she has cut out of the newspaper or magazines, and some are handwritten from friends. I love that every recipe (especially the handwritten ones!) have a story that goes with them.
My mom usually cooked 1-2 turkeys a year – we would eat it for Sunday dinner and then she would portion it out and freeze the rest for other meals.
One of my favorite leftover turkey dinners was Turkey Tetrazzini, and when I came across the recipe for it the other day while digging through this recipe drawer, I wanted to make it immediately.
I didn’t have any turkey on hand, but I had plenty of chicken, so I used the chicken instead and it still turned out delicious. Save this recipe for your post-Thanksgiving turkey or make it immediately with whatever you have available!
