The End of Turkey Week

Phew. Turkey week ends today. I think Toby

has enoyed it more than either of us. One would think the chubby Pan

would be the food lover, but she only likes dry cat food.

Friday: Buffalo Turkey Pizza

We have pizza on Fridays. So it has always been, so it ever shall be, etc. One of my favorite pizzas to make (and eat) is buffalo chicken pizza. The difference with the turkey pizza is, get this, I'm using turkey instead.


1/2 batch pizza dough, risen.

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup Louisiana style hot sauce
mozzarella cheese, grated,
remaining turkey, cut to small pieces

Preheat oven to 415 degrees.

Roll out dough to desired thickness and length, put in pan or on pizza stone. Mix the butter and hot sauce in a pan on the stove until melted. Turn the heat off and add the turkey to the pan until it is saturated. Pour mixture over dough and spread evenly with a spoon. sprinkle cheese over top. Bake in oven for about fifteen minutes or until you can lift up the pizza with a spatula and knock on the bottom


El Turkey Burrito

Before we begin discussing "El Turkey Burrito," I would like to make note of an addendum to "Phil's Family Style Turkey Roles".

Beth, Phil's sister and so heir to the turkey role recipe, commented

"A note to your Turkey Spread recipe, if you are a fan of pickles (which I am) you can use some sweet gerkins as well. Cut them up into little circles and add then with the celery and onion. If you REALLY like pickles (which I do) use 1/2 turkey stock and 1/2 pickle juice when moistening the turkey."

And now, without further ado

Thursday: Turkey Burritos

I'm not certain what the difference between a burrito and a soft taco is. I'm not sure these aren't fajitas. All I know is that I like them, and burrito is shorter than soft taco, and easier to pronounce than fajitas. So the purists out there can complain all the like (preferably not to me), but I will keep the title.


One batch flour tortilla dough, cooked and ready

Half of your remaining turkey (this should be about a wing).

1 can refried beans

1/2 bag frozen mixed vegetables

1/2 onion

1 cup cooked rice

Louisiana style hot sauce (in other words, not Tabasco)

Olive oil

salt and pepper


Please note, the directions pick up after you have prepared the tortillas and cooked the rice.

Pour some (enough to thinly coat the pan) olive oil into a big pan and turn on the stove. Once the oil is nice and hot, add the onion. Cook until the onion begins to brown. Add the refried beans, vegetables (you can add them frozen or thawed), and turkey (pulled or cut into bits). Cook until the beans are well mixed and sort of runnier than they were from the can. Add the rice and mix well. Add the hot sauce to taste (in our house, I like it very hot, and Phil likes it a little hot, so I make the filling medium and then add to my own burritos). After the hot sauce, add the salt and pepper to taste. Turn the stove off and fill the tortillas.
