get your gobble gobble on. four easypeasy recipes for turkey leftover redux…
yes, turkey sandwiches are great. but turkey fajitas, meatballs, soup & stromboli are even better!
while my original fajita and meatball recipes call for lean ground turkey, i think you could easily improvise with shredded roasted turkey as a happy medium.
ok, go eat turkey and be merry! :) and then take a nap. happy thanksgiving weekend, my friends!
