One of my favorite meals to make for lunch the day after Thanksgiving is leftover turkey on toast. Of course, you can prepare this anytime of year if you have extra turkey.
You will need the following ingredients:
- 2 ½ cups of leftover turkey cut up into small pieces
- ½ stick of
- Tbsp. of
- cups of 2%
- oz. shredded cheddar
- slices of bread
Follow these steps to make the leftover turkey on toast:
Melt the butter in a medium-sized sauce pan. Use the medium heat setting on your stove to do this.
Add the flour, and stir until the butter and flour have formed a thick paste.
Slowly pour the milk into the paste, stirring continuously. The flour paste will begin to absorb the milk, keeping the sauce thick.
Watch for the sauce to thicken once all of the milk has been added, and then drop in the shredded cheese. Stir until the cheese has completely melted.
Add the turkey to the cheese sauce. Remove the sauce pan from the heat, and give it a few minutes to heat up the turkey.
Place your two slices of bread in the toaster. Once toasted, set on a plate and cover with the turkey and cheese mixture.
You will have enough turkey and cheese sauce to feed five to six people. Each person will require two slices of toast.
You don’t have to use cheddar cheese. Monterey Jack, Colby, and swiss cheese also taste great in this recipe.
