I was so excited to see turkeys on sale in the Publix ad. This is the time to buy those big birds! I typically buy 3 -4 turkeys that hold me over the entire year. Yes…turkey is just as good in July as it is in November ;-) Well, with my crazy life this past year (building a new home and moving) I just didn’t cook up all my turkeys. I found myself with a gobbler still in the freezer. My husband was so kind to throw that baby on the Big Green Egg this past weekend.
While I love a turkey for dinner and of course as leftover sandwiches, one of my favorite recipes is my Creamy Turkey Tetrazzini. Is is a big hit with my guys and pretty simple to whip up. So grab a 59¢/lb turkey from Publix then try this recipe with those leftovers…I think you will be very pleased!
