Wrap Extra Turkey into Roll-Ups

Follow PBS Food on Pinterest

I love the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving. Waiting by the oven while the turkey roasts, preparing all the sides, whipping heavy cream to top at least two different kinds of pie. But what I might even love more than eating Thanksgiving dinner is eating Thanksgiving leftovers all weekend long.

Since no one really wants to cook anything the day after Thanksgiving, why not give these simple cold wraps a try?

Leftover roasted turkey is chopped and pulled and mixed with creamy mayonnaise and Dijon mustard then wrapped up in a whole-wheat wrap with a healthy smear of cranberry sauce. Yum.

Enjoy your holiday weekend!
