Never Too Much Turkey!

Turkey Tetrazzini.

Leftover turkey is quite possibly more precious than the Thanksgiving turkey dinner itself. After proclaiming to be “stuffed” from the afternoon meal, everyone always seems to find room for a second round of food with turkey sandwiches in the evening. If you’re lucky enough to have any remaining turkey after your guests head home, try this turkey tetrazzini recipe.

It’s a great day-after Thanksgiving meal. Because it’s a creamy pasta, your family feels like they are truly getting something different vs. leftovers. Pair it with a cheesy garlic bread, made by layering Shamrock Farms French Onion Sour Cream, garlic salt and cheese, then broiling until brown and bubbly! This garlic bread topping has such a rich flavor, that this is a great way to repurpose any leftover bread/rolls from Thanksgiving!
