Poutine-Style Turkey, Gravy and Potatoes - An easy and delicious Thanksgiving twist on a classic Canadian dish!

To make this delicious meal, leftover roasted turkey and gravy are spooned over crispy, sautéed diced potatoes, then topped with fresh cheese curds that melt from the heat of the hot gravy – very similar to the popular Canadian dish called poutine.

  17. Bonnie Witmyer :

    Our favorite leftover is being able to warm up the delicious holiday dishes the day after… no work, just pure enjoyment of the love behind preparing the meal and being thankful to be with friends and family during the holidays!

  18. My favorite is the turkey sandwich, so much so that I deep fry 3 birds for myself to eat turkey for most of the year. Just bread, mustard,mayo,salt,pepper, sometimes with stuffing on it too.

  19. I love open-faced turkey sandwiches because they are easy and delicious.

  20. My favorite Thanksgiving leftovers meal is toasted dinner rolls, “buttered” with gravy, add a few pieces of sliced turkey, S&P for a few little sandwices; stuffing “waffled” and coated with warm gravy; hot mashed potatoes w/some grated cheese (& yes, more gravy!), some warmed up green bean casserole; and to sweeten the whole deal, a dessert of vanilla ice cream topped with homemade cranberry sauce. Yumm!

  21. My favorite leftover meal is to make an omelette and put anything and everything in it! Yum!!

  22. christina purvis :

    I love to top the mashed potatoes with my leftovers. Open faced sandwiches are good too!

  23. I have a recipe for Enchilada casserole that my mom gave me. Typically you’d make it with chicken, but we’ve also found it’s a great use for leftover turkey. Also I always make turkey carcass soup!

  24. My favorite are turkey salad sandwiches, which are just like tuna sandwiches, except with turkey. The big chucks of meat can be used for other things, but the small pieces are ideal for sandwiches.

  25. My favorite leftover meal is a turkey dinner casserole! It’s my grandmothers recipe and it’s delicious! 🙂

  26. Hi, what are cheese curds and where do I find them.

    • Hi Katie – Cheese curds are basically solid pieces of the curdled milk from the cheese-making process. We found ours at Whole Foods but other supermarkets may sell them too (typically sold in a plastic container in the gourmet cheese section). If you can’t find them, you could cut cheddar into small cubes – it won’t be exactly the same texture as the curds, but a close alternative in a pinch. Hope that helps!
