Turkey Leftovers

Since it has been 4 days since Thanksgiving, do you still have turkey leftovers? Are you sick of turkey sandwiches? Maybe you thought about throwing them out. WAIT, one you can freeze the turkey to use later or two you can make this recipe I threw together last night. Super easy, tasty, and it used up the last of the leftovers!

Turkey long grain and wild rice

2 cups chopped/shredded leftover turkey
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 cup turkey broth
4 cups water
2 pkg of Natures Way long grain and wild rice mix with seasoning packets

Toss everything into a pot, stir well and cook for 20 minutes. Done! I served it with the last of the stuffing and cranberry salad, plus the leftover collards from Sunday. The fridge is empty, the dishes are done, the tummies are full.

  1. What a great idea! I get tired of turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving too. This is perfect to share at Foodie Friends Friday.

    1. Angie I love turkey sandwiches but had a lot leftover, so I decided to use it all at once and be done. It was quick easy and delicious.

  2. Turkey and chicken pot pies are favorites at our house. You have such a cute blog. I am hosting a great giveaway on Dining With Debbie. (1) $50 gift certificate to my favorite jeweler robinsonlane.com and (2) a signed copy of Arkansas Pie: A Slice of the Natural State written by fellow blogger, Kat Robinson. I would love for you to come enter Merry Merry Munchies and the rafflecopter entry. I think you would enjoy either one of these prizes. http://diningwithdebbie.blogspot.com/2012/11/2012-merry-merry-munchies-3-baked.html

    1. Thanks Debbie. We love those as well. Linked up to your party.

  3. I love the idea of making another dish out of leftovers, since I for sure had too many sandwiches this year after thanksgiving! Next year I will be sure to remember this!
    Thank you so much for sharing this at Wednesday Extravaganza! Hope to see you there again this week with more deliciousness!
