Three Light, Simple and Easy Meals from Turkey Leftovers

There never seems to be enough time to prepare for the holidays. Our immune systems plummet and stress rises. During this time, try to find shortcuts to make things less stressful. Turkey leftovers can be a helpful part of this strategy.

Here are three light, simple and easy ways to use your turkey leftovers:

  1. Turkey Quesadillas. Spray a whole wheat flour tortilla with Butter Pam. Place in frying pan and sprinkle with shredded cheddar cheese, chopped turkey pieces and sliced green onion. Place another tortilla on top and spray with Butter Pam. Brown on both sides until cheese is melted. You can add some chopped olives or jalapeno peppers if you desire. Serve with salsa.
  2. Spinach and Turkey Salad. Mix together – chopped turkey, bacon flavored almonds, dried cranberries and fresh spinach. Serve with your favorite vinaigrette or honey mustard salad dressing.
  3. Turkey Soup. Use canned chicken broth, chopped turkey and a bag of your favorite frozen vegetables. Pour everything in a pan and heat through until vegetables are crisp and tender, about fifteen to twenty minutes. Serve with a good brown bread.
