Thanksgiving leftovers

We all know what to do with the turkey leftovers but what about the other things?

Well, here are some suggestions.

Stuffing.  Take any leftover stuffing, make it hot, or at least warm and press it into a flat pan. It will be easier to do this while warm.  To know what size pan to use you want the stuffing to be about two inches thick. Chill it thoroughly.  Cut it into squares then saute them over medium heat in a non-stick pan with a little oil and butter. Think of it as savory French toast in an abstract way.  If you saute it until it is golden on one side and a little crisp it has a nice contrast in texture to the soft middle.

Turkey carcass and scraps.  I hope you all are making a nice turkey stock.  Put all turkey scraps and the carcass in a pot large enough to accommodate it, cover the carcass with cold water and simmer for about 6 hours.

Cranberry relish.  That will make a nice cheesecake if you just adjust the seasoning.
