Quarantine Cooking with Emma – Finally using up the rest of that turkey breast from post 1

Neither of these two meals have recipe links, they’re just regular things to make in my home. The first one is egg salad, with you guessed it, turkey!

I boiled 6 eggs, and mashed those with light mayo, a little salt and pepper, garlic powder, and some salt-free southwest seasoning. I added the small cut pieces of turkey breast, and I also diced up some celery for crunch. Turkey was an easy add-in to the classic sandwich spread, and used up leftovers in another fun way. Besides a regular sandwich, I also like to have my egg salad on a piece of toast. Enjoy!

The second, and last (the turkey is gone!) leftovers recipe is Salsa Turkey (usually Chicken).

Make rice of your choosing, I made brown rice I had on hand. Depending on how much you’re making/ how many people you’re feeding, you need 1-2 jars of salsa. I used a quart of my home canned salsa for this recipe. Add salsa to a medium/large pot or skillet, heat until warm, and stir in taco seasoning to taste, I used 2 packets for 4 cups of salsa. Once that is mixed well, stir in your chopped cooked turkey, and simmer until heated through. Layer rice, salsa/meat, and top with cheese. Pair with a veggie. Easy & delicious!
