Turkey for me and turkey for you....

Since celebrating Thanksgiving on Wednesday, we have had turkey 2 meals a day. Just plain turkey get's old real fast! And since Moe won't eat it this year - she says it tastes funny and she doesn't like it (which I think may be because we normally get a local farm raised bird and this year we got a frozen Butterball turkey) it means some of us are eating more turkey then others.

Here a re a few recipes we make to use the leftover turkey.

Turkey sandwiches

Chopped turkey
Tomatoes, sliced
Shredded cheese
Ranch Dressing or Hummus

Place all ingredients on a wrap, roll up and enjoy!

Turkey Enchiladas

1 cup chopped turkey
1 can enchiladas sauce
1 package shredded cheese

Mix all the ingredients together (optional, you can add in pre-cooked rice). Put a small layer of enchilada sauce in the bottom of your pan. Place mixed ingredients on your wrap, roll up and place side by side in your pan. Spread the rest of the enchalata sauce and a little bit of cheese on top. Cover with aluminim foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes until bubbly.

Turkey Soup

Chicken Broth
Chopped turkey

Mix all ingredients together and cook on your stove about 1 hour until cooked thoroughly. Or in your crock pot for 4-5 hours, adding pasta at the last hour.

Turkey Mac and Cheese

Mix turkey in your favorite mac and cheese recipe

Turkey salad

Finally chop turkey and mix with mayonnaise and scallions. Use on top of salads or on a wrap.

Turkey Chili

2 -3 cans red kidney beans
2 cans black beans
2 cups chopped turkey
1 package of chili mix

Mix all together in your crock pot and cook on low heat for 4-5 hours. Serve with sour cream and shredded cheese on top. Can also be served over backed potatoes, chips or pasta.

Enjoy your turkey!
