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 pretty good.
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 sriracha sauce.
The key here of course is that there are loads of things here that taste good that aren’t turkey.
