Less than a week people. That's right, by this time next week all the menu planning, eating and football watching will be over. And we will have moved onto all those leftovers and tree trimming!
Today I've got a great idea you can either serve before the big Thanksgiving meal, or wait and put some of those leftovers to good use with.
Let's face it, while we all look forward to the huge Turkey Day meal, the entire day is really about eating, and even when dinner isn't served until 3 pm, you find yourself looking for things to snack on all day long. You're sitting on the couch, watching football, or the Macy's Parade, and you just have to have something to munch on. It's just part of the Thanksgiving aura.
The first time I made these years ago, I wasn't sure about the flavor combo because of the addition of the cheese (after all, turkey and cranberry are a no brainer together) but they are like the perfect bite every time you put one in your mouth.
If you need some ideas for the pre-feast snacks, let this be the first on the list. Or you know you will be in desperate need of ways to use the pounds of turkey you have left come Black Friday, this is the answer to either!
Cranberry Turkey Bites
Deli Turkey or Leftover Roast Turkey, sliced thin
Whole Cranberry Sauce
Sharp Cheddar Cheese, sliced tin to fit crackers
Lay cheese on crackers. Top with turkey and cranberry sauce. Serve immediately.
