Make the Most of Your Leftovers with Savoury Crepes
Once all the cooking, feasting, grateful wishes, and family time have passed, most of us are left with heaps of food from Thanksgiving celebrations. While the turkey is delicious, it can become redundant and dull having the same sandwiches, wraps and salads for lunch and dinner. Looking for some fun ideas to make your turkey leftovers more exciting? Consider the following options or visit a Crepe Delicious location near you to see how versatile and tasty savoury crepes can be for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Ideas to Make Your Turkey Leftovers More Exciting
Eliminate the groans and forget ‘boring’ when you hear the word “leftovers”. Better yet, convince your family that you started from scratch! Here are some novel ideas for meals that are as tasty and inviting as that first Thanksgiving feast:
- Creamy Turkey Crepes – Cranberry sauce is delicious, but why not switch things up with creamy turkey crepes? A rich and delicious béchamel sauce can elevate your next dinner and will tie together the soft crepes and juicy turkey perfectly.
- Thanksgiving Crepes – Open your fridge and find everything you need for this classic with a twist. Wrap leftover turkey and stuffing in warm, freshly made crepes and serve with cranberry sauce for a simple twist on your holiday meal that will excite the kids and make all the flavours seem like new again.
- Turkey and Pesto Crepes – Another sauce switch can make a world of difference in the flavour and enjoyment of your next leftover lunch. Spread fresh or store-bought pesto on thin, mouth-watering crepes and pile high with turkey for the perfect, easy and light lunch.
- Buckwheat Crepes – If the rolls have gone stale, why not add some healthy buckwheat crepes to the side of your plate of leftovers? The different texture pairs perfectly with turkey and cranberry sauce while still giving you carbohydrates for a balanced and nutritious meal.
Ready to mix up your leftovers, but not sure how to make crepes? The keys to delicious, even, and perfectly cooked crepes are the right tools and a little patience. Take your time, spread the batter evenly with a careful pour or by using the right crepe making tools. Ensure your skillet is heated properly and has enough oil or butter to keep them from sticking!
