For holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas I sometimes become
overwhelmed with tradition and get turkey. I inevitably curse myself
for doing so about 5 minutes into preparing it. Turkey, to me, doesn’t
taste good and it’s generally not any fun to cook with as it’s almost
always huge - even when you’re lazy like me and just get a crown.
This year I decided to stirfry it. Yes, that was a lot of cutting. No,
it was not fun. Yes, that’s never happening again, I learned my lesson.
However even if you cook it other ways, I’m sure it’s possible to cut
up leftovers for a stirfry later.
Which leads to this utterly silly leftover idea - that actually tastes
Crunchy Teriyaki Turkey
- Stir-fried or strips of leftover turkey in teriyaki sauce (soy sauce
and honey is close enough).
- Some rice.
- Some leftover peas or broccoli can be nice.
- Bombay mix.
Take all but the last ingredient and microwave them till hot. Top with
a good shake of bombay mix. Maybe squirt on some
The key here of course is that there are loads of things here that taste
good that aren’t turkey.
