I believe that a lot of moms in the U.S. has a special recipe for “leftover turkey”. From my experience, turkey meat is leaner than chicken one. further more, after turkey was roasted in the oven, it starts loosing juice and fat..It becomes definitely DRY meat!
To avoid drying meat, here is an idea how to cook leftover turkey. The point is marinate with olive oil for a while. If turkey was marinate in the oil, it could be juicer than original meat. (Don’t do too much time). Then you can enjoy a very juicy turkey muffin sandwich next few days.
