    one: First, try a savory snack with this simple Turkey Samosas recipe (baked not fried). Mango Chutney brightens up this pop-able treat. (No mango? Try a little applesauce).

    two: Make your Monday/back to work lunch awesome with a Turkey, Cheddar & Green-Apple Sandwich. Sliced turkey – along with a smear of grainy mustard, mayonnaise, thinly sliced extra-sharp cheddar cheese and green apple slices served in toasted whole-grain bread – turn leftovers from yesterday into a gastro-yes!

    three: This double whammy warms you up and is a relatively easy and health-conscious option. Simply stir lean chunks of turkey meat into chicken broth and add pad thai noodles (or your favorite kind), broccoli, carrots, and bean sprouts. Recipe from Diabetic Living.

    four: Real Simple dishes up a turkey breakfast dish (or brunch) featuring eggs, red potatoes and peppers. See how to throw together this hot meal for the entire family here – Turkey Hash with Fried Eggs.

    five: The Saturday after Thanksgiving might call for a quick pasta dish. Up the ante with this Penne with Goat Cheese, Kale, Olives & Turkey recipe. Sort of a savory one-pot meal (minus the other pot that boiled the pasta)

    six: Finally, check out this photo how-to for yummy Turkey Cranberry paninis.

    We hope you’ve been enjoying this series!
