Thanksgiving Leftovers? Make a Turkey Wreath!

#

Thanksgiving was almost a week ago. I know some of you still have some turkey and cranberries leftover, right?! I did and made the same recipe I make every year, about this time. A Thanksgiving Turkey Wreath! I love it because it’s easy and I often have all the ingredients on hand. The kids like it because it tastes super yummy! The hubby likes it because it’s quick and easy. Win-Win-Win!

I got this recipe a few years ago. Over the years I’ve modified and changed it, but the idea is still the same, make a turkey salad type of deal with leftovers and throw it in some crescent rolls. YUM!
