Three Leftover Turkey Ideas That Rock!

Do you need some recipe ideas for leftover turkey? BBQ Dragon can help! Why let something that tasty sit in the fridge or freezer when you can put it to good use! Sure, you may be burned out on leftover turkey and varients such as turkey sandwiches, turkey salad, and… more turkey sandwiches – so why not change things up a bit.

Here are three leftover turkey ideas that rock!

White Sauce Turkey and Pepperoni Pizza

Go for pizza gold with leftover turkey, chopped onion, peppers, pepperoni, and more! And – why not try using a white sauce instead of a tomato-based sauce? Regardless of what sauce and additional ingredients you choose – the BBQ Dragon 8″ Chef Knife is perfect for chopping and slicing turkey and your additional toppings!


Grilled Turkey Pimento Cheese Quesadillas


This is almost too easy! Grab some pimento cheese, some taco seasoning, and your leftover turkey. Combine in a bowl, spread on soft taco shells, fold, and sizzle on a hot griddle. Turn, cook until both sides are golden and crispy! Brush with butter seasoned with a few dashes of your favorite spice – Italian seasoning to dried cilantro, or even more taco seasoning! Serve hot with salsa and sour cream. Of course, you can add in everything from sliced onions to spicy jalapeno peppers!

The BBQ Dragon Heavy Duty, Double-Sided Cast Iron Reversible Griddle Grill Pan is a perfect tool for grilling your quesadillas! Smooth on one side and groved on the other!


Of Course… a Turkey Sandwich!


Come one – did you really think we would pass on making an awesome leftover turkey sandwich. There is nothing wrong with the traditional white bread, mayo, lettuce with salt and pepper version – but let’s get crazy!

Grab some leftover turkey, season it with your favorite sauce, warm it, grab some sliced onions, mixed salad greens, roasted diced tomato, and Dijon Mustard. Add your favorite cheese, and serve cold or warmed with the cheese melted.
