Leftover Turkey, Turkey Salad Sandwich Bento

I've caught some stomach virus at a restaurant last week after the long Thanksgiving weekend and I just wasn't myself. I was running in and out of the bathroom, I had no appetite, and I was just tired all the time with a terrible headache! Exactly one week and 5 pounds off later I am finally myself again. It was a very miserable week as I was unable to enjoy spending time with my family...AND cooking!

Now that I am ALL BETTER and caught up with all my work and family, I can finally do a post that I wanted to do last week! I wanted to talk all about leftover Turkey. But I have noticed that there are quite a few bloggers out there already have special recipes for leftover Turkey. One best leftover Turkey dish I love is making Turkey Jook. You can follow my jook recipe here, replacing chicken with turkey. You can also use leftover duck, too. Another dish I made with leftover turkey is turkey salad. Of course, you can replace turkey with chicken, too.

Turkey Salad

1 cup Leftover turkey, deboned and chopped
1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Raisins
1/2 of an Apple, peeled and diced finely
Dash of Pepper

(Measurements are not exact, I was eyeballing everything when I did this)

Direction: Mix them all together, add more mayonnaise, raisin, or diced apples to your taste.

I don't like celery...but wanted to add something crunchy so I decided to add some apples. I thought it tasted pretty refreshing! In addition to adding it to sandwich bento (pictured above with slices of apples and salad), I also had it as a dip and ate it with triscuits. Posting my bento to "What's for Lunch Wednesday". =)

I've had to do several potlucks recently and got a chance to make seasoned soybeans, edemame rice, and grilled some steak using this steak marinate. They were all hits!! Yay!

  1. You certainly have lots of fillings for the sandwich, which is what I love to do too if I'm preparing a sandwich. Look so yummy!!
