Turkey Jambalaya

Featured Recipe: Turkey Jambalaya

This one is a family favorite. It's easy to throw together and is a great way to use up leftover turkey (which we had from our meal on Sunday). It may not be a totally authentic or traditional jambalaya - for one, it's missing the celery that's part of the holy trinity of Cajun cooking - but it's darned tasty for relatively little effort.

  3. Bellini Valli - I love it because it's so completely different from the traditional tastes of Thanksgiving - you don't really even feel like you're eating leftovers!

    Sorina - Thanks! As soon as I finished the last leftover portion for lunch, I wanted more.....
