I have a confession to make. Traditional Thanksgiving turkey is not my thing. Leftover Turkey? Now that’s something that I can get behind. I love cooking with Turkey after the holiday. We always have plenty left and you can make a wide variety of dishes.
This year, I’m doing something different for Thanksgiving. Instead of buying a whole turkey and wasting a lot of it (no one likes dark meat here at the CB home). I’m just going to brine a breast and make that. We’ll still have some for leftover turkey recipes and eliminate the waste (and that nasty carcass).
Still leaves me with the dilemma of what to do with leftover bird. Thank goodness I have friends that are great cooks that come up with creative ideas. Here are 20 of them.
