Quick-healthy-delicious-and creative! We had "on toasts" froze the leftover barbecue and gave it to a friend who had it "on rice". He called the next day demanding the recipe! Read More

made this with leftover turkey. we had this with rice instead of on toast. the flavor of the turkey with barbeque does not go that well in my opinion. my husband ate it but also thought the flavors didn't mesh well. Read More

I did it on the english muffin wouldn't change a thing! 8-10-02 Have now tried it with leftover pork that started as a whole pig cooked on a spit -- still excellent! Read More

Definately a great way to get rid of the last of the Christmas turkey!! I added some water and soya sauce to make it a little thinner and had it over rice. A big hit at our house we'll be using it again for leftover turkey for sure! Read More

I gave this 5 stars because it is so different from traditional left over turkey recipes and was very fast and easy to make. I thought this sounded like an asian barbecue and decided to serve it on ciabatta rolls instead of english muffins. Also made a coleslaw that I added hoisen sauce to and served on the sandwich. YUMMY! Next time I will add some fresh cilantro and maybe a squeeze of fresh lime. Read More
