How to Reheat Turkey Leftovers
Well, Thanksgiving is over, but our American right to the leftover carnage has just begun! I told you how I made the entire Thanksgiving meal for leftovers, but I didn't explain how I reheat my turkey for our day-after feast.
Growing up we always served large holiday meals buffet style in tabletop chafing dishes like this one. The food is placed in pans over deep water pans. The water is heated just until it steams and it keeps the food warm and moist.
So with that in mind, I thought a great alternative to the steam table would be to warm up leftovers using the steam insert to my pasta pot. I bring an inch or so of water to a simmer. Place the cold sliced turkey meat in the steamer insert and put it over the simmering water. Cover with a lid and check back every few minutes until the meat is the done. It heats up just as moist and juicy as Thanksgiving day!
Oh, I almost forgot. It is also a great way to reheat your leftover dressing. Mmm-- moist and tender dressing!
