Thanksgiving is over but you have a refrigerator full of leftovers and the thought of eating the same meal every day until the leftovers are gone does not sound appealing.

In this household, leftovers are the best part of the Thanksgiving meal, since it allows us to utilize them to create other meals without needing to go shopping!

Here are two of our favorites:

Turkey & Apple Salad
serves 2

2 cups leftover turkey cut into bite-sized pieces
2 cups celery, diced
2 cups apple, cored and diced
¼ cup golden raisins (or grapes!)
2 tbsp mayonnaise (omit if avoiding dairy)
2 tbsp plain yogurt (omit if avoiding dairy)
¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
Salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, combine mayo, yogurt, and spices. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine turkey, celery, apple and raisins. Fold in yogurt mixture. Season with salt and pepper and serve atop a salad of mixed greens and tomatoes.

Turkey & Vegetable Quiche
serves 4

1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium red pepper, chopped
1 tsp garlic, minced
2 tsp coconut or olive oil
2 cups leftover vegetables, chopped
2 cups left over turkey, shredded
4 eggs, whisked
½ cup fresh parmesan, grated (omit if you avoid dairy)
In a large, oven-proof skilled, sauté onion, red pepper and garlic in 1 tsp coconut or olive oil over a medium heat until onions are translucent. Add leftover vegetables. Pour mixture into a medium bowl. Add shredded turkey and egg – mix. Coat skillet with remaining oil, return egg and vegetable mixture to skillet and cook on medium-low heat for 10-15 minutes until mixture is set on the bottom and lightly browned at the edges. Sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top and place under broiler for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is lightly browned. Serve immediately.
