    I am now wishing for turkey sandwiches…. or chicken or duck or …. hmmmm…. *daydreams*.

    Have you ever eaten goose? We had it at Christmas sometimes growing up but there were never leftovers to sandwich.Report

    Yes, a couple times! I’m actually hoping to get a goose and some ducks this year, which I will then get too attached to to ever eat.Report

    I’ve got to seriously object to the notion of dried or powdered mashed potatoes. Actual mashed potatoes are ridiculously easy to make and about three orders of magnitude better than reconstituted tuber glue.

    Cut up your raw potatoes into 1-2″ cubes. Boil them. I boil mine in poultry stock; you can use just water if you prefer. Periodically fish out a cube with a wooden spoon to test for its softness. When the tater cube is easily crushed, you’re good. Take ’em out, plop in a bit of milk and a bit of butter and some roasted garlic if you’re of a mind, and mash ’em up. Takes less than half an hour.

    My sweet potato / yam dish is easy to make in a sous vide but can be done baked a casserole.
    Cut up the tuber into 1-2″ cubes. Add in some agave nectar and diced chives. Then add in a canned chipotle pepper or two: de-seed the pepper, unless you want these guys really hot, but be sure to include the rich and smoky adobo sauce they come in. In my sous vide, I seal all this up and let it sit for a few hours at 195. Or, bake it covered in foil in a casserole at 425 until the tubers soften (smaller cubes cook faster) and the flavors mix. Sweet and spicy! And a very lively add to that pilgrim sandwich.Report
