Quick and easy turkey leftover recipes

Thanksgiving turkey, just out of the oven

If you still have Thanksgiving turkey left over here's a few quick and easy recipes to deliciously get rid of it.

One of my favorites I fixed last night.

Grilled Turkey Rubens, serves 2

4 slices rye bread

1/2 cup sauerkraut

2 slices of Swiss cheese

1,000 island dressing


Butter or apply spread to outside of rye bread, place one slice butter side down in skillet.

layer on some turkey, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and thousand island dressing.

Butter other side of bread and place on top with butter side facing up.

Grilled until toasted on one side, turn over and toast other side.

Enjoy, grilled turkey Reubens are delicious especially with a crisp pickle and some chips.


Crunchy Turkey Salad, serves 2

coarsely chop cooked turkey, from 1/2 cup to 1 cup

Mix in a coarsely chopped tart apple like Granny Smith

Throw in a handful of nuts, pecan or walnuts work best.

Fold in some low fat mayo to taste.

You can either use this on a sandwich, by itself, or put a big spoon on top of some torn salad greens.


Both the Reuben and turkey salad recipes are very easy to prepare and both are very tasty.

The turkey ruben sandwich sounds real good.  I just can't eat much sauerkraut before meeting with clients.  LOL

The sauerkraut is not a requirement Randy. I also toasted some bread with mayo, lettuce, turkey, and a few slices of bacon.........that was pretty tasty too.

Sorry Kenneth, the Reubens were last night.

I'm glad I didn't see this until after thanksgivien. It makes me want to cook, and then I want to eat. Since my goal is to lose a few punds, eating is bad.
