Love that Turkey a la King


Now that we’ve celebrated Thanksgiving, it’s time for leftovers and what beats 
Turkey a la King?




Supposedly, this dish was created in the late 1800’s by a New York hotel and named after an equestrian family with the name Keene.  The dish was originally called “a la Keene” which later took hold as “a la King.” 

This is probably one of those basic ‘everyone has made it’ kind of dishes but, it is so good.  It is a creamy sauce with turkey, pimento and mushrooms served over biscuits.  Rice, noodles or toast could be topped with it also.  It turns turkey into a sumptuous dish that uses up the leftovers and is a nice change from casseroles.

This one fits the bill for comfort food!  It’s a rich creamy dish fit for a king and everyone else.  Make your whole family smile with Turkey a la King!

The odds of going to the store for a loaf of bread and coming out with only a loaf of bread are three billion to one.

“I know the look of an apple that is roasting and sizzling on the hearth on a winter's evening, and I know the comfort that comes of eating it hot, along with some sugar and a drench of cream... I know how the nuts taken in conjunction with winter apples, cider, and doughnuts, make old people's tales and old jokes sound fresh and crisp and enchanting.”
Mark Twain
