As delicious as your Thanksgiving turkey might be, leftover turkey and all the trimmings can get a little old after a couple of days. Here are five tasty recipes that will help transform your bird into delicious dishes your whole family will enjoy.
Swap out the ground turkey for 3 cups leftover cooked turkey cubed or shredded. Add the cooked turkey with the herbs after sweating the veggies and cook until heated through, about a minute, before adding the flour.
Make my go-to Chicken Noodle Soup with leftover turkey instead. Whip up a double batch of this soup and freeze half to enjoy later.
3. Turkey & Caramelized Onion Tostadas
Another chicken-turkey swap out! Shredded turkey, caramelized onions, pepper jack cheese, guacamole and sour cream on a crispy tostada shell.
Add cooked turkey with the black beans and cook for 1-2 minutes instead of 5-10 before stirring in the green onions, cilantro and lime juice.
5. Mini Toasted Turkey & Mozzarella Sandwiches
Replace turkey cold cuts with thinly-sliced pieces of leftover turkey for a heartier mini sandwich.
