I hope you plan the way I do, and make sure you have plenty of turkey left over after Thanksgiving so you can try some of these recipes! I know I’ve shared my favorites with you before (like green chile turkey enchiladas) so I thought I’d try and find some new ones for this year. I can’t wait!! These are from the National Turkey Federation.
