This is the perfect way to use up that left over turkey from your holiday dinner. And not to mention it will make your house smell amazing!
The first thing you will want to do is reserve your turkey juices/drippings from the pan you cooked your turkey in. If your like my family we make our gravy from these drippings as well but usually there is more than enough to use for both. Next, I turn my crockpot on low and add my turkey drippings, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic to my pot. I like to let this simmer for an hour or so.
Once I am done with that, I add 2 tablespoons of turkey base, 3-5 cups of water depending on how big of a batch you are making, and my leftover turkey that I have cut up. Add salt and pepper and any other seasonings you like. I let this cook 2-3 hours and then I turn my crockpot to high and add in my egg noodles.
Once your noodles are fully cooked you are ready to enjoy!
This has quickly became a family favorite at house. We enjoying smoking various meats including pork loin and pork butt(pulled pork). We always have tons of meat left over so we usually make this for one of our meals from our leftovers. SO GOOD! The even better part is that it is super easy and crock pot friendly!
Simply combine all of your ingredients in the crock pot and turn on low for 6-8 hours. Easy enough, right? We like to garnish ours with a little bit of sour cream, shredded monterrey jack cheese, and corn chips. Yum!
Crock pot meals are definitely my go to during the winter months. Not only are we always on the go with sports but it is also nice to come home to the house smelling amazing and not having to cook supper!
The thing I love the most about this is that you simply just throw everything in the crock pot and forget it! All I did was combine all my ingredients except for my shredded cheese, sour cream, and corn chips in my crock pot and cooked on low for 6-8 hours. When I was ready to serve it I added my cheese, sour cream, and corn chips. Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing without adding all the extras but why not make it even better, right? HaHa! It doesn’t get much easier than this! My kiddos even loved this that’s an added bonus! Perfect for those chilly, dreary days!
*2 8oz. Bags Shredded Cheese-I used Kraft Triple Cheddar
*1/4 Cup Chopped Onion-optional
*2 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
*Salt & Pepper
*1 Tbsp. Seasoned Salt
*1 Tbsp. Onion Powder
*1 Cup Frozen Peas-optional
-To make a lighter version of this dish, simply substitute lower fat/light ingredients. I have done this several times and it turns out just as yummy!
Who doesn’t love a simple crockpot meal? I know I sure do! Throw it all together in the morning and forget about it!
Start by turning your crockpot to low and adding all the ingredients except for the peas. I prefer to use liners for my crockpot to avoid the hassle of having to clean my pot afterwards. You can find these in the baggie and tin foil isle at the store. Stir occasionally. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. Add frozen peas 30 minutes before you plan on serving.
As I mentioned before the onion and peas are optional but I personally love the flavor the onions give to the dish and the color that the peas add. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of peas, but I love them in this dish.
