Easy Leftover Turkey Recipe and How to Defat Drippings

One of my FAVORITE meals after Thanksgiving is made from the leftovers, and it's one of the easiest meals to make.

  • First, in a microwaveable baking dish sprayed with cooking oil, I layer some Turkey meat. 
  • Then I top that with a layer of stuffing. 
  • Finally, I top it all with gravy. 
  • Put it in the microwave, and heat for about 15 minutes. 
  • I serve it with a side of Cranberry Sauce, and a nice tossed salad.

How to Remove Fat from Turkey Drippings for Gravy

After I've poured off the juice from the turkey into a container, I put it in the refrigerator overnight. All the fat floats to the surface, and I remove almost all of the fat and throw it away. Take a good look at it before you do and be thankful that your going to doing away with a lot of "bad" fat for your body. Then we make the gravy a usual.

How about you? What is your favorite leftover meal holiday meal?
