I have spent quite a few years perfecting the formula for the best way to build a turkey bun... and here it is!
STEPHANIE'S PERFECT TURKEY BUN:
- A white pull-apart tray bun
- Turkey pulled apart into little pieces
- Stuffing (I know you are thinking.... What? Bread on bread? That's weird. Well it is delicious. The spices in the stuffing add to the final product)
- Cranberry Sauce
Now there are a few tricks to building the bun that make it into the perfect meal. First, make sure you heat up the turkey, stuffing, gravy, and bun separately (don't heat up the cranberry sauce). Everything needs different time in the microwave to get to just the right temperature for consumption of that item. Then assemble in the following order: bottom bun, stuffing, turkey, 2 spoonfuls of gravy, cranberry sauce, top bun.
After you have assembled, grab about 8 napkins, because this bun is MESSY. But it's worth it. It's delicious.
How do you use up your leftovers?
