When I moved out on my own eighteen years ago, and had family over for the first time at Thanksgiving, I overdid it with too much food. So after I send as much turkey home with everyone as I could, I was still left with over half of the gigantic bird. After much talking to my Grandma, she gave me the recipe that she’d use often and always found most effective.
Considering that I and other Canadians just celebrated Thanksgiving a couple days ago, I thought I’d share this idea for what to do with the leftover turkey!
