Since we were in Florida over the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend, we celebrated a little late and just had Thanksgiving last week. Which means we have been eating turkey for a week! I don’t actually mind because I love turkey sandwiches and I make a turkey casserole that I enjoy as well. My turkey casserole is so simple because I just put leftover turkey, stuffing, vegetables, potatoes and cream of mushroom soup in a casserole dish and bake. The adults in the house love it, but the kids are not as keen. I am always thinking of new ways to use up leftovers, and since I had some brie and cranberry sauce in the fridge I decided to create some Thanksgiving leftover hors d’oeuvre.
Turkey Brie Bites
- Leftover Butterball turkey, cut into small pieces
- Whole berry cranberry sauce
- Arrange crackers on a microwave safe plate.
- Top with cheese and turkey.
- Microwave for 15 seconds or until the brie starts to melt.
- Remove from microwave and top each cracker with cranberry sauce.
I would have preferred a wheat cracker like Triscuits for these appetizers, but the rice crackers were good too. It was the perfect mixture of flavours and I will be serving these again! I may even have to think up some new appetizers to make with turkey that I can make with our Christmas dinner leftovers.
A delicious variation of this is a toasted turkey, brie and cranberry sandwich.
What do you do with your leftover turkey?
