Waste not, want not. Those words hold more truth than ever right after our Thanksgiving feasts. Hopefully, you are fortunate enough to have had a turkey at your house and are blessed with leftovers. What to do with all of that turkey? Recycle it into delicious meals for your family, of course!
The very first thing I do is shred my turkey and place it in zipper sealed bags to freeze. If you have a little broth, put a tablespoon or so in each bag to ensure it stays nice and moist. I usually put about a cup and a half of shredded turkey per bag. That is a good amount for most casseroles and such and if you need more, simply get two bags from your freezer.
To help you use up those leftovers, here are ten Southern Plate recipes in which you simply exchange turkey for the chicken and you’re off to the races! Enjoy 🙂
