What to do with your left-over Thanksgiving turkey

I don’t know about you, but I’m all full up on Thanksgiving turkey and I’ve got loads to spare.  Would you like to know what we’re having for dinner tonight?  Yep, turkey.  Only a different incarnation of the regular Thanksgiving variation.

Here’s one idea for what to do with your left-over Thanksgiving turkey:

Barbecued turkey sandwiches.

Here’s what you need:

  • left-over Thanksgiving turkey
  • bottle of barbecue sauce
  • crock pot
  • 2 cans mushrooms
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Throw all the ingredients in the crock pot, let it simmer for a few hours, all day, overnight, whatever fits your fancy.  Spoon into left-over Thankgiving roll for a delicious BBQ sandwich.
