Thanksgiving Prep in 5 Steps: Turkey Leftovers

Just one more week till Thanksgiving dinner everyone! We're in the homestretch (and perhaps even a little ahead of ourselves) with this post for Turkey Leftovers - part of our T-Minus Turkey Day series we started last week.

See all the posts from this series


one: First try a savory snack with this simple Turkey Samosas recipe (baked not fried). Mango Chutney brightens up this pop-able treat. (No mango? Try a little applesauce).

two: Make your Monday/back to work lunch awesome with a Turkey Cheddar & Green-Apple Sandwich. Sliced turkey - along with a smear of grainy mustard mayonnaise thinly sliced extra-sharp cheddar cheese and green apple slices served in toasted whole-grain bread - turn leftovers from yesterday into a gastro-yes! Photo from MSLO three: This double whammy warms you up and is a relatively easy and health-conscious option. Simply stir lean chunks of turkey meat into chicken broth and add pad thai noodles (or your favorite kind) broccoli carrots and bean sprouts. Recipe from Diabetic Living. four: Real Simple dishes up a turkey breakfast dish (or brunch) featuring eggs red potatoes and peppers. See how to throw together this hot meal for the entire family here - Turkey Hash with Fried Eggs. five: The Saturday after Thanksgiving might call for a quick pasta dish. Up the ante with this Penne with Goat Cheese Kale Olives & Turkey recipe. Sort of a savory one-pot meal (minus the other pot that boiled the pasta) six: Finally check out this photo how-to for yummy Turkey Cranberry paninis.
