It gives me great pleasure to finally feature one of my mom’s recipes since she’s one of the best cooks I know. Almost everyone says that about their moms because it’s MOM, but if my mother were to open up a restaurant, I’m sure it would be bursting at the seams all the time. This particular recipe is one that brings up great memories because we’ve been making this dish for as long as I can remember. Every Black Friday, while the brave (or the idiotic, depending on your point of view) would be battling crowds at the malls, my mom and I would tackle our giant turkey and start cooking.
I suppose I should have posted this a couple weekends ago when Thanksgiving had just ended and everyone had turkey coming out of their ears, but this recipe is pretty much good year-round. It’s one of the best ways to get rid of all that leftover turkey and takes the boredom out of said leftovers since it deviates from the sameness of all those dry turkey sandwiches. The most time-consuming part is just shredding all that turkey by hand, but once that’s over this is one of the most ridiculously easy dishes to make. It’s a balanced meal on one plate and is just really pretty to look at!
