Recette parmentier à la dinde

Recipe by Anick Lamothe – Une mère poule un peu dingue

 

This dish is a snap to put together ahead of time. Just reheat and enjoy! You can prepare the whole thing from scratch or, better yet, use leftover holiday turkey for a tastebud-tantalizing way to avoid unnecessary food waste.

 

Yield: 4 servings | Preparation time: 40 minutes | Cooking time: 1 hour 30 minutes

 

Ingredients

 

Puréed squash
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) butter
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) milk

 

Turkey
  • About 1¼ lb (600 g) skinless, boneless turkey breast
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 onion, quartered
  • A few bay leaves
  • Salt and pepper

 

  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) butter
  • 4 shallots, minced
  • 2 8 oz (227 g) packs of cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • ½ tsp. (2.5 mL) cloves
  • ½ tsp. (2.5 mL) allspice
  • ½ c. (125 mL) white wine
  • ¼ c. (60 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 2 c. (500 mL) turkey, chicken or mushroom stock
  • 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper

 

Preparation
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F (220C). Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Slice the squash in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Lay the halves on the sheet pan, cut side down. Bake for 1 hour. Remove from the oven, flip the halves over and let cool slightly. Lower the oven to 350F (180C).
  2. While the squash is cooking, place the turkey breast in a saucepan and cover completely with water. Add the chopped carrot, celery and onion, along with the bay leaves, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a summer and cook, covered, for 1 hour. Remove the turkey from the broth, let cool 10 minutes and then pull apart using two forks. Strain the broth and discard the vegetables. Set the chicken and broth aside.
  3. In a large frying pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the mushrooms and diced carrot and celery, stirring regularly, until the moisture has evaporated, about 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. Stir in the cloves, allspice and white wine and cook 3 to 5 minutes, until the wine has all bit evaporated. Sprinkle the flour over top and mix well. Add the stock, vinegar, salt and pepper, and stir until it thickens. Add the pulled turkey. Divide the turkey mixture into four single-serve ovenproof dishes.
  5. Scoop out the squash into a bowl. Add the butter and milk. Mash together using a potato masher and, when smooth, spoon out on top of the four prepared dishes, spreading uniformly over the turkey mixture.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes and serve.

 

*Note: Don’t throw out the rest of the turkey broth. Use it to make a chill-chasing soup!
