    Ingredients

  • -Leftover Turkey
  • Leftover Stuffing
  • 4 oz. Chicken Broth
  • 1 pkg. of Ramen (For best results, use Chicken)
  • Any Oil

Start by pouring some oil onto the pan. Fry up your stuffing and leftover turkey for about a 2-4 minutes. Next, set the fried stuff aside, and boil your ramen, saving the flavor packet for a bit later. Then, add more oil to the pan and fry your ramen (the stuffing/turkey should not be in the pan at this time). After about a minute, you should put in your flavor packet. Next, put the turkey-stuffing back in. Gradually pour in chicken broth. Mix and serve.

I have just made the perfect recipe. I don’t know how I did it but I made a restraunt quality dish. ok, ok, here it is.

    Ingredients

  • 1 can of turkey gravy, about a cup
  • 1 package of beef noodles
  • salt, pepper, and olive oil
  • water
  • 3 veggies, (I used half green pepper, cup of broccoli and about eight mini carrots)
  • 1 tomato.
  • Cook the noodles in water in the microwave for 1.5 minutes, so that they arn’t soggy, but firm and mallible. Drain. In a sauce pan cook the veggies, minus the tomato. Add some olive oil to coat. Start the heat and when it is really hot add a cup of water, salt, and pepper. let the veggies cook down and when there is a little water left in the bottom of the pan, add the beef seasoning. When that is mixed in, add a can of turkey gravy, bring to a simmer. Serve this mixture over the noodles and chopped up tomato. Can feed two people or one. Pictured is half of the dish.

Spicy Post-Thanksgiving Delight

Submitted From: Toronto, Canada

Ingredients

  • 4-5 oz leftover turkey
  • 1 pack Nong-Shim Shin Ramen (Hot & Spicy)
  • 1/2 Tbsp. Curry powder (the hotter, the better)

Cook ramen, adding curry powder along with spice packet. While ramen is cooking, microwave turkey for 45 seconds. (I’m assuming it’s already cooked and packed in tupperware in the fridge.) Add turkey just before ramen is finished cooking. VERY filling, relatively tasty, and thriftier than a pile of goodwill stores.
