I do love me some Thanksgiving, with family gathered around the table and the turkey and all the fixings. But close after that in terms of things I am thankful for are the leftovers! And every year I try and come up with some new and scrumptious way to serve up those precious leftovers, because is there is something about Thanksgiving leftovers that always transforms magically into comfort food. And so I bring you this year’s spin on next week’s leftovers: turkey shepherd’s pie! Let’s make it!
There’s something about roasting vegetables that is just some kind of magic. Not that there is anything wrong with a plain old raw carrot, but when you take that same carrot, mix it up with some little potatoes and some beets and toss the whole thing with a little olive oil and salt and roast it until everything is warm and tender on the inside and a little crispy on the outside…that is Vegetable Magic. And when you add in some cheese and top the whole thing off with a poached egg…hello, GORGEOUS! Ready to give a whole new meaning to egg salad? Let’s make it!
This easy recipe for shepherd’s pie just might be the best comfort food EVER. Warm and wonderful and just right for your supper table.
I truly thought my beef barley soup work was done forever with my beloved slow cooker version that I have been making for years and years. That, however, was before I got my mitts on my Instant Pot, and after having made glorious beef stew and scrumptious barbecue, visions of an Instant Pot version of beef barley soup started dancing in my head.
And I realized that while some days it would be fine to let my beef barley soup cook all day in the slow cooker, there were going to be days when I wanted my soup and I wanted it NOW. Or at least, within the hour. And so I present my newest beef barley soup crush: Instant Pot Beef Barley Soup. Let’s make it!
Ah, this chicken soup! It has so many things going for it, not the least of which is that it cooks up low and slow all day long in your slow cooker, which means that you will walk in to your kitchen at the end of the day and it will dawn on you that yes, dinner is pretty much almost made. Along with that, it’s packed with carrots and celery and sweet onion and potatoes, so not only is it scrumptious and super easy, it’s also good and good for you. It’s the soup that keeps on giving. Let’s make it!
