Leftover Turkey Sloppy Joes

Leftover Turkey Sloppy Joes   Now that the chaos of Christmas is over with, I just want to relax and enjoy some quick and simple meals.  Luckily, there are lots of leftovers to make meals a little easier. If you had turkey for Christmas dinner, you probably have some leftover turkey that you don’t know what do to with.  Well, I have a really yummy and fast recipe to share with you from Cook with Campbell’s to spice up that leftover turkey. If you didn’t cook a turkey this Christmas, you could pick up a roast chicken and use that instead. Leftover Turkey Sloppy Joes This recipe is so easy that even a kid can make it. In fact, my eight year-old, Cole, pretty much made the entire thing himself. I just helped cut up the vegetables, but he threw everything into the pot and cooked it. Then we toasted some buns, piled the turkey mixture on top, and sprinkled it with lots of cheese. Leftover Turkey Sloppy Joes I have to say, I’m really loving these recipes from Cook with Campbell’s that I’ve been testing out as a Campbell’s ambassador. Every one I’ve made so far has been delicious and a cinch to make.  The recipes truly are “simple to make, easy to love.”  My kids agree! sloppyjoecritics Ayla was napping when we had these sloppy joes, but the boys were more than happy to eat her share.  I didn’t mind them filling up their bellies with these sandwiches, because they’re an excellent source of protein and calcium, and they contain a full serving of vegetables.
