Leftover Recipes: Turkey Stroganoff & Turkey Chili

From everyone at Passanante’s Home Food Service, we hope you had an incredible Thanksgiving weekend with your family and friends. We look forward to this holiday each year and have had a great time sharing recipes with all of our customers and fans over the last month.

Preparing a huge and elaborate feast is such an exhausting task that it’s no wonder we’re thrilled to have leftovers for days — BUT if you’re anything like us, you’ve had just about all the leftover turkey sandwiches you can take and there’s still tons left in the fridge. Luckily we crawled out of our turkey coma just long enough to post a few simple recipes you can try out this week… they’re simple, delicious, easy to whip up, and can be ready in less than 30 minutes. Enjoy!
