Once Thanksgiving is over, but much of that 20-pound turkey is still around. Some easy ways to make the most of the leftovers:
Shred turkey. Add a dash of mild chili powder, a drizzle of olive oil, and heat in microwave. Serve in either soft or hard tacos. Let your family layer on whatever toppings they want: guacamole, cheese, salsa, or veggies. The best part: The kids make their own meal!
For a kid-friendly lunch, combine turkey slices with shredded carrots, diced grapes, and a dollop each of mayo and mustard. Using an animal-shaped cookie cutter, press out a slice of bread and a cheese slice. Scoop salad onto bread, top with cheese, and place under broiler until melted. The salad can be assembled in advance and stored for up to 48 hours.
Thread 1/4-inch-size chunks of turkey, cheese (like cheddar), and apples, grapes, or pineapple onto skewers. For kids under 7 slide off skewers when serving and serve with a spoonful of cranberry relish.
