Leftover Turkey Spring Rolls with Cranberry Sweet and Sour Dipping Sauce

Rating: Unrated
This lends classic Asian flavors with an all-American twist. I suggest enlisting the help of a couple of people rolling the spring rolls. This takes up the majority of the prep time. I bake the rolls instead of frying them to cut down on the calories, but you can deep fry them for extra flavor. If you can't find spring roll wrappers, use the egg roll wrappers. They don't bake well, so deep-fry them instead. Use real soy sauce brewed from soybeans, and not the stuff with caramel coloring and salt.

Leftover Turkey Nachos

A great way to use up some of that leftover turkey from a holiday meal. You can also use cooked and cubed chicken breast if you prefer. It can be used as an appetizer or doubled for a main dish.

These sandwiches are quick, easy, and always a hit. They can be served at receptions, baby showers, Bible studies, or tailgate parties! I have made large quantities and they have always turned out. Sandwiches can be made up in advance and stored in refrigerator until ready to bake. Try them and enjoy!

This is a great recipe to use up leftover turkey or chicken. It does not taste anything like leftovers. Makes about six 2-inch croquette balls. Definitely need to double or triple recipe for large groups as I can eat 2 croquettes easily.

You can make these ahead and freeze them without the glaze, then the day of the party, defrost them and simply reheat in the sauce.
