Looking to transform that leftover turkey sandwich? Try a Turkey Bao – made with turkey, hoisin sauce, sriracha, cucumber, scallions, and cilantro in a freshly steamed bun.
Do you have tons of leftover turkey after Thanksgiving? Are you wondering what to do with all of said turkey? You’ve got the classic turkey sandwich, of course. But how about mixing things up a bit this year and putting an Asian spin on things?
Sometimes after eating leftover turkey all week, you just need something that hits your tastes buds differently. I love this leftover turkey bao because you get an entirely different flavor profile than you would from some of the other more traditional means of using leftover turkey. So breath some new life into those leftovers and make some turkey bao!
