Let’s face it, no matter how big or small our Thanksgiving turkey is, there’s always left overs. How many turkey sandwiches can you eat. Even though, we go out for dinner, I always make a turkey breast and stuffing. (dressing as some call it) I usually make turkey paninis or open face turkey sandwiches.
We love these, but I wanted to make something new.
Meatballs were originally made with left over meat, so not to waste. Some people still use this method. I took that concept and tried it with left over turkey. I ground up the cooked turkey meat, added some stuffing, dried cranberries and eggs to bind. I rolled into small meatballs and fried them until slightly browned. They fry up quickly because the meat is already cooked, which makes it easy for a quick meal. I made made small meatballs to make sliders. I put them on dinner rolls, and top them with some cranberry sauce and gravy. They were a HUGE hit. These will definitely be part of my Thanksgiving left over repertoire. They’re a must try!
