    Well, I was all ready to pin these and use them for all of my turkey leftovers… but they are almost gone already! Everybody enjoyed eating them “as is” for lunch, and now there is definitely not enough turkey left to try these. SO, I guess I’m making another turkey because all of these look delicious:)

      I am planning to make some with rotisserie chicken after the turkey runs out… shhhh… don’t tell! They look too good to put away until next year!
