Winter Hearty Turkey Leftover Meals

We had a huge turkey this year! With only four of us eating, we had a lot of leftover turkey. Here are some of our favorite ways to use leftover turkey.  All of the recipes serve 4.

Turkey Quesadillas

  • 1 cup chopped Mushrooms
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter

  • 2 packs Ezekiel Sprouted Corn Tortillas or Flour Tortillas

Chop or shred turkey, onions and mushrooms. Use flour or corn tortilla shells. We like using sprouted corn tortilla shells. Heat 1 TBSP of butter in a skillet. Sauté onions and mushrooms until tender.  Remove from skillet and place shell in skillet and layer a little shredded cheddar cheese, turkey, mushrooms, onions and more cheese topped with another shell. Lightly brown both sides. Plate and serve! This dish takes about 10 minutes.
