Leftover Turkey or Chicken Cheesy Lunch

Lunch, Quickies

If your family is anything like mine, leftovers don’t get eaten up, then they end up getting thrown away.  I do not like wasting food, so I wanted to find new ways of eating leftovers, that don’t seem like just warming up leftovers.

So, I came up with this yummy concoction with the leftover turkey from Christmas, but this would also be great with chicken!

I started by laying down a bed of turkey in a bowl, then topped it off with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.

 

Once the turkey (or chicken) is seasoned, I topped it off with pats of butter (for extra fat content & flavor) and slices of cheese, that were also leftovers from a cheese platter.

 

I then warmed the meal up in the microwave for 2 minutes.  Please note that heating times may vary, but you’ll want to make sure that the butter & cheese are fully melted.

Once the food is warmed, it’s ready to eat!  Green beans or other veggies are great on the side!
