The family is gone, the day was a success. Everyone raved about your turkey and all the fixins. Now what do you do with the extra turkey? Here are some great recipes so you can bring new life to leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
I know it says chicken soup, but you can make it exactly the same using turkey. I love to make a big batch of broth with the turkey bones. Find Nourishing Traditions recipe for making chicken or turkey broth in this blog, too!
This is another chicken recipe, but again can be made with turkey. My family could eat tacos every week. Don’t forget the non-GMO taco shells!
Don’t know about you, but one of our family’s favorite ways to use leftover chicken or turkey is open-faced sandwiches. This gluten-free, Paleo-friendly gravy recipe even passed my daughter’s test for a great gravy. She loves gravy and is kinda picky about it. Use homemade grain-free bread and this is a tasty Paleo-friendly meal. Love it with leftover cranberry sauce!
Check out this post from Dr. Axe with 47 different recipes for leftover turkey. As he states, it is healthier to substitute honey, maple syrup or coconut palm sugar for white sugar. Also, coconut milk can be used in place of regular milk. And you can replace highly processed (and often GMO-laden) vegetable oils with olive oil or avocado oil. I’m eager to try the Asian inspired turkey salad!
