Leftover Turkey? Here’s What To Make!

🍗 I’ll be honest… I am not a big fan of ham, but I am all abut some Thanksgiving turkey. 🍗

It is may favorite part of the meal and I absolutely LOVE having leftover turkey! I never have a problem eating it until it runs out. There is never such a thing as too much for me…it is always gone too soon. However, I know a lot of people like it the once and then look for ways to use it up. Here are a few recipes to turn your leftovers into something new! 🦃

Mom, feel free to just ignore this post—you can still send the leftovers home with me! 😂

Panera’s Turkey Artichoke Panini

Before I started eating healthy, I used to get this panini sandwich from Panera all the time. I don’t think they make it any longer, but I remember checking the nutrition on it once after I started to be aware of my health when making food choices, and it was over 700 calories! OK every once and a while for a treat, but not when i think about how i used to eat that, PLUS an entire bag of the mini cookies!!

Leftover Turkey Harvest Cobb Salad from SkinnyTaste.com


Did you eat too much stuffing and pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving? Here's a wonderful way to use up any of that leftover turkey if you're looking for a meal that will be filling yet light.

This is a brilliant fall twist on a classic favorite. And, I mean, who doesn’t love bacon?! I also LOVE roasted butternut squash in salads, so this recipe looks amazing! If you have never tired it, I highly recommend. You could sub leftover sweet potatoes if you bought too many and didn’t use them all.
