Thanksgiving is as much about the turkey and all the traditional side dishes as it is about the leftovers.
My preference is for a classic turkey sandwich – good bread, lots of mayo. Larry will eat some variation of Thanksgiving for days, but this year he spotted a recipe for a strata that he thought might be good. I need to leave random cookbooks out on the counter more often, because he’ll invariably pick it up and start browsing through to find something he wants me to make.
This strata is very simple, and can be easily adapted to whatever you have on hand or to your personal preferences. I stuck mostly to the recipe but cut it in half – and it still made a huge amount.
The strata is a great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers. Bread and turkey, encased in a custard with cheese, bacon and tomato. We had it for dinner instead of breakfast.
