Turkey Leftovers

Or what do I do once everyone begins to get tired
of Turkey from Thanksgiving, Passover, Christmas or Easter

Hot Turkey or Chicken Salad 

This Southern dish is baked just enough to melt the cheese yet the salad
stays crisp. A very unusual salad and something new to try with those leftovers.

2 cups of cooked turkey or chicken, diced
1 cup celery, chopped
1/2 cup blanched, slivered almonds
1/3 cup green pepper, diced
2 Tbsp grated onion
1 tsp salt
1 can water chestnuts, diced
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp pimento, chopped
1/2 to 1 cup mayonnaise
4 slices Swiss or Cheddar cheese
1/2 to 1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter

Combine all but last 3 ingredients. Place in a 9 x 14 inch
baking dish, top with cheese. Cover with buttered crumbs. 
Bake, uncovered at 450 for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden

Serves 6

Annie's Turkey Salad - Submitted by: Ann Sizemore

"This recipe can be made with leftover turkey, or a turkey breast. It is my great-grandmother's recipe. The cook time will not include the baking of the turkey, just making the salad. Keeping the salad somewhat chunky is part of what makes it good. No food processors, please. I serve this on a bed of red leaf lettuce and garnish with red and green seedless grapes and pecan halves. Cubed jellied cranberry sauce is very good with it, so I place that on the plate around the salad. Serve with assorted crackers or breads." Original recipe yield: 10 servings. 

6 eggs 
6 cups cooked turkey meat 
1 (16 ounce) jar sweet pickles, chopped 
1 1/2 (10 ounce) jars mustard-mayonnaise blend 
3/4 cup mayonnaise 

Place eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop. 
In a large bowl, thoroughly mix the eggs, turkey, pickles, prepared sandwich and salad sauce and mayonnaise. Chill in the refrigerator approximately 3 hours before serving.
