The great thing about turkey is it can be substituted for chicken in any recipe. This means the skies the limit and you have a ton of resources and recipes already at your fingertips.
The above image shows the favorites in our house. Most obvious is the turkey leftovers sandwiches. I don’t always put the stuffing on my turkey sandwich. We had a cafe years ago and we had a turkey gobbler on our menu. I’m one of those people that would prefer to put my cranberries in a separate bowl because I don’t want them touching anything on my plate. It took me years to try this sandwich even though it was our top seller. lol It’s easy to make and tastes amazing. Just bread, cream cheese, turkey, cranberries and sprouts or lettuce.
For something that will have a very different flavor than your usual turkey dinner look at making enchiladas or turkey spaghetti. The change of flavors will be a welcome change if you’ve had multiple turkey dinners over the four day weekend.
Soup is a second typical go to for most households. In my house we’re going to run with the usual turkey noodle soup but why not try a turkey chili or even toss it into a minestrone style.
You can never go wrong with turning your leftover turkey into a pot pie. I love the flaky crust and creamy flavor. Add in your favorite vegetables and surprise the family with a warm turkey pot pie.
Don’t forget that you don’t have to make these dishes and eat them right away. Create the recipes and put them in the freezer for later. You won’t get tired of turkey that way.
Turkey leftovers don’t have to be boring. Look outside the Tupperware you filled up and change the texture and flavor up.
Never worry about what's for dinner again. I've got you covered with the meal plans in the Once a Week Cooking Club. Cook once, eat all week.
