3 Ways to Use Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers
You spent the entire holiday cooking the biggest turkey you could find. The family sat down for a Thanksgiving dinner and ate most of your kitchen creation. But you still have some turkey leftover. What can you do with the rest of the bird? Check out these post-holiday recipe ideas that the whole family will enjoy!
Turkey Sandwich Bar
Turkey sandwiches are a no-brainer. Up your leftover game and set up a family-friendly buffet bar. Slice the turkey and warm it in the oven before serving. Add a few different types of bread, cheese choices, lettuce, tomatoes, grilled veggies, hummus, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes and anything else your family enjoys. Each family member can build their own sandwich or try a few different combos.
Thanksgiving Pizza Pie
Start with a pre-made pizza shell, ready-to-use dough or your favorite recipe. Choose either a traditional red pizza or go with a sauce-free white pizza option. After you layer on the sauce, cheese or other toppings, sprinkle shredded turkey onto the pizza. Follow the shell or dough’s cooking instruction for baking thoroughly.
Shredded BBQ Turkey
Chop and shred the remaining turkey. Mix the shreds with your favorite BBQ sauce. This is an easy way to involve your kiddos in the cooking process. They can pour the sauce and mix it in with the turkey. Serve the turkey on a bun and add on sweet potato fries.
