What to Do With Turkey Leftovers

Santa Comes to Kimberly & Keith's Home

The two feet of snow that fell in our area this past week, left some beautiful icicles hanging from our roof, you can see them behind Santa in this picture. Keith had just put red and green light bulbs in our outdoor spotlights, so they were lit just beautifully and provided a wintry backdrop to our lifelike Santa and tree!

Yesterday, the day after our big holiday feast with the family, I decided to do something a little different with our turkey leftovers. This is a great way to cut the carbs by eliminating the bread and stuffing in your traditional turkey sandwich made from holiday leftovers. Here is my recipe that was easy and elegant:

Turkey Melt

Turkey Cheese Melt

Put thinly sliced white meat turkey in the bottom of a pie plate or individual oven safe serving dish. Dot with honey butter (mix soft butter and honey together to make your own). Add a few sprigs of cilantro. Grate some cheese and cover the other ingredients. Dollop cranberry sauce on top (make your own by cooking fresh cranberries and sweeten with maple syrup and stevia to reduce the sugar content).

Heat in 350 degree oven until cheese is melting and butter is bubbling (About 15-20 minutes).

Remove and serve with bread and butter (ours was a sourdough rye dinner roll bought from the Smart Markets farmers market in Oakton. The baker specializes in gluten free and what she calls pre-biotic baking. She is a brand new member of Weston A. Price Foundation, too!)

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Keith takes great pride in his Christmas village every year, here is my favorite, the Home for Sale! I love this since he is in real estate! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, friends!
