Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Turkey Wild Rice Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #chicken #wildrice #soup #recipe

Creamy yet healthy, this turkey wild rice soup transforms leftovers into a dreamy hot bowl of comfort and deliciousness. I came home from Christmas with some special treasures … you might think I mean Christmas presents, but no, those weren’t my biggest treasures … although I had my fair share of lovely presents this year and […]


Spinach Cornbread Stuffing

spinach-cornbread-stuffing

People always ask me what we eat for Christmas dinner … it usually involves ham or turkey … or sometimes, if we’re lucky, a Christmas goose. This year we were blessed to have a Christmas goose, a Canadian goose that one of my brother-in-law’s friends got on a recent hunting trip. Apparently it was quite […]


Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushrooms

Thanksgiving Stuffed Mushrooms  ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #Thanksgiving #Leftovers #Recipe

Well another Thanksgiving has passed us by … only one of my sisters came to my parents’ place this year. My sisters aren’t speaking to each other right now, so I guess I only get to see one at a time. I wish they would make peace … I have only heard one side, but […]


Spicy Turkey Nacho Soup

Spicy Turkey Nacho Soup ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #cheesy #Mexican #soup #recipe

A creamy, cheesy Tex Mex-style nacho soup loaded with leftover turkey (or chicken), black beans, corn, onions, tomatoes, pepper and cilantro. Serve with crunchy corn chips, cheese and a few fresh cilantro leaves on top. It’s the day after Thanksgiving and it’s time for turkey soup! I always seem to crave Mexican food after Thanksgiving. […]


Mushroom Kale Stuffing

Mushroom Kale Stuffing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dressing #stuffing #recipe #holidays

It’s Christmas and I’m finally posting this recipe we made on Thanksgiving. My sister brought this gorgeous bunch of kale for Thanksgiving and we decided we needed to put it in the stuffing. We all loved the earthy taste and texture that the kale added to the stuffing. This recipe makes a LOT of stuffing, […]


Spinach Artichoke Salad in a Jar

Spinach and Artichoke Salad in a Jar with marinated feta ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #saladinajar #recipe

I whipped up this salad on a whim one day when I had to rush home (taking an early lunch break) because I completely forgot there was a potluck at work. There were already plenty of sweets at the potluck, so I was thinking I should throw together a quick salad. I pulled a few things out of […]


Mediterranean Smoked Turkey Wrap

Mediterranean Smoked Turkey Wrap ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #quick #healthy #lunchbox #wrap #recipe

I’m doing a series of lunchbox cooking classes at work and all kinds of fun ideas were flooding through my head for recipes I could feature. My mind drifted back to a simple supper I made for myself one time after a long camping weekend when we stayed up way too late, lazed around on Sunday and when […]


Turkey Florentine Sandwich

Toasted Turkey Florentine Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #hot #cheesy #grilled #turkey #sandwich with #spinach & #sundriedtomato

Let’s take a break from all the holiday goodies for a gosh awful good sandwich! A grilled turkey sandwich with melty Italian cheese, spinach, sundried tomato, cream cheese, Greek yogurt and garlic. I made this sandwich the first time as a way to use up some leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, but it was so good, […]


Turkey Quinoa Brussel Sprout Casserole

Turkey Quinoa Brussel Sprout Casserole with Mushrooms, Smoked Gouda & Bacon ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #comfortfood #leftovers #recipe

A creamy, luscious, yet healthy turkey casserole with mushrooms, smoked Gouda cheese, quinoa, and a bit of bacon. Even though my dad made a 17-pound bird, there really wasn’t much turkey left after our crowd got done eating this Thanksgiving. I was warned that I couldn’t take too much–and I didn’t. Just a small container […]


Turkey Black Bean Fresh Mex Bowl

Turkey Black Bean Fresh Mex Bowl ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #easy #Mexican #meal #recipe

After I made that fabulous Cilantro Lime Rice, I kept thinking of ideas for how I could use it. The first thing that came to mind was the Fresh Mex bowl that I had had at Chili’s a while ago. They looked SO good on the menu, but when I got mine, I just felt […]


Turkey Avocado Salad & a Picnic

Turkey Avocado Salad with Herb Chipotle Ranch Dressing ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #dinner #salad #recipe

with Herb Chipotle Ranch Salad Dressing I’m behind on my posts … I can’t recall the story behind this salad, how it came to be. I think it was one of those “I’m hungry for a good salad” moments and I looked in my fridge and discovered an avocado and some smoked turkey that I’d […]


Turkey Fontina Romesco Sandwich on Brioche

Turkey Fontina Romesco Sandwich on Brioche Bun ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sumptuous #sandwich #recipe

with Romesco sauce, red onion, and mixed greens There are days when I come home and I just need something quick because I’m STARVING! But my opinionated, snobbish taste-buds stubbornly refuse to “settle” for something boring and ordinary. I spend the time on the drive home thinking “what is IN my fridge and how on […]


Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich

Turkey Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Sandwich with Havarti Cheese ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

with Havarti Cheese and Mixed Greens I wish I could think of a shorter name for this sandwich … I pondered it long and hard and eventually I just gave up. It’s just got too many good things inside it! The Smoky Red Pepper Cashew Cream Sauce is the star, the flavor burst that makes […]


Smoked Turkey Spinach Sundried Tomato Sandwich

Smoked Turkey Spinach Sundried Tomato Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

There are times when I’m soooo hungry that it’s hard to wait for the food to get done, let alone force myself to abstain from eating long enough to take a few photos before I inhale my food. This sandwich was one of THOSE. I made this after going to a power yoga class the […]


Smoky Grilled Turkey, Gouda & Pear Sandwich

Smoky Grilled Turkey, Gouda & Pear Sandwich with Arugula ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sandwich #recipe

Crunchy toasted bread, melty smoked gouda cheese, with smoked turkey, sweet pears and peppery arugula. I had so many plans for those lovely pears I got from my friends and had such fun cooking with them (and just enjoying them straight up, no prep, just pure pear-liciousness). One of the things I thought would be […]


Asian Ginger Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders

Asian Garlic Zucchini Beef Sliders ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #sliders #recipe

Highly adapted from All Recipes. These little munchie burger-lings are a little deceiving … they look like hamburgers … and so they are … but they have all the flavors of Asia packed inside them, plus a couple veggies hiding inside there. They have a touch of spicy heat, garlic, and freshly grated ginger. The […]


Turkey Avocado BLT Sandwich

Turkey Avocado Bacon Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #BLT #recipe

I modeled this sandwich after one I had downtown at the Diner. The sandwich was SO good, I wrapped up the other half that I couldn’t eat for later … and then I was so sad when I left it on the table. So when I came home and found my little tomato plant had […]


Blue Cheese & Spinach Venison Burgers

Blue Cheese & Spinach Venison Burgers ~ Sumptuous Spoonfuls #burger #recipe

We had a pre-4th of July potluck barbecue cookout last week at work. Because we have so much meat in our freezer, I signed up to bring burgers. Then I was faced with how to season the meat. I made two flavors and this one was my personal favorite. I saved enough meat to make […]


Turkey Enchilada Soup

Turkey Enchilada Soup ~ from www.SumptuousSpoonfuls.com #turkey #soup #recipe

Adapted from Zestous’ Chicken Enchilada Chili. The taste of shredded chicken enchiladas in a comforting soup with a bit of sweet corn, celery and hearty beans. Okay, honesty I totally cheated and used chicken in this soup (the very same chicken I used in my Smoky Red Chicken Enchiladas), but I really think this enchilada […]


Turkey Tomato White Cheddar Melt

Smoked Turkey Tomato White Cheddar Melt

This is the sandwich I made with the Roasted Pepper Tomato Tapenade. It is simply delicious and it’s something you can totally make in a rush. If you’ve got the tapenade in your fridge, the sandwich comes together in a few minutes. All you need is a whole wheat bun, some turkey, sweet onion, fresh […]

Last Wednesday the […]


Turkey, Prosciutto and Gouda Sandwich

Turkey Prosciutto & Gouda Sandwich on Artisanal Kumquat Cornbread

on Artisanal Kumquat Cornbread It was National Cheese Lover’s Day yesterday and since cheese is one of my very favorite foods (right next to chocolate), I just had to have a cheesilicious sandwich for lunch. My son came upstairs as I was making it, asking for a back rub. (His back is sore from shoveling […]


Turkey & Provolone with Pesto Cream on Focaccia

Smoked Turkey & Provolone on Focaccia with Pesto Cream

The other day I made Rosemary Tomato Focaccia, and having a wonderful flat-ish bread like that around just screams SANDWICH! Focaccia makes such a beautiful gourmet sandwich. I threw this elegant sandwich together last night for dinner, and it was so good I had to have it again for lunch today. It’s very simple to […]
