Leftover Turkey Recipe Roundup

Leftover Turkey Recipe Roundup

After the Thanksgiving meal is over, we all end up with way more leftovers than we want or need. We are all usually looking for something to make that leftover turkey taste like something new. Here is a roundup of recipes from my blogging friends to help you find a tasty way to do over your left over turkey:

I don’t like turkey much myself, so I usually cook a chicken for the holidays. Nevertheless, you can use leftover turkey in this recipe for a Chef Salad With A Twist: (Click on the name of the photo to see the recipes)

My friend, AnneMarie  from This Mama Cooks shared her quick and easy fried rice recipe. Substitute chopped turkey for the shrimp, and get a whole new taste for your leftovers:

AnneMarie also sent me this recipe for a Turkey Panini Sandwich with Cranberry Relish:

If you eat a gluten free diet, and want to try something really different, Robin from Mom Foodie came up with this delicious looking Turkey and Spinach Quinoa:

For a light meal after a day of stuffing yourself, Katy from KatyDid Country serves up a Turkey Salad. With apples, grapes, and walnuts, it is a whole meal by itself:

Sheri, of Kidsumers,up in Canada has already had her Thanksgiving day. She gave me this recipe for Turkey Brie Bites, a yummy appetizer for after Thanksgiving get togethers. Cranberry Sauce and brie? Yes, please. Use your favorite gluten free crackers to make these.

Sheri’s version of a turkey sandwich, the Turkey Caesar Wrap, is different and easy to make too. These can be made gluten free with a gluten free plain flour tortilla.

Alison from Being Alison, lives in New York. She told me about her Turkey, Cheese & Avocado Sandwich. It does look really good!

This last recipe is one I found on Pinterest. Just looking at the picture of it makes my mouth water! I can make it gluten free by simply substituting gluten free tortillas, and oh! Delicious. Turkey Cranberry Enchildadas from Midwest Living.com:
