Who doesn’t love leftover turkey!! However sometimes we have too many leftovers that we want to eat before they go bad. This is one of my favorite ways to use them up. Now I know what you’re thinking: yes it’s high caloric and high in fat but, it’s your dinner time meal and it’s only to use up the leftovers. You won’t eat this ‘high in fat’ meal everyday. Remember, occasionally its ok. Give it a try!
