How do I make a Smoked turkey breast last all week and not get boring? This is how.
Let’s face it, I’m lazy. I smoke one turkey breast a week so that I don’t have to cook the rest of the week. That’s 100% pure laziness right there. Call me the queen of leftovers, and the captain of cereal. But really, if homemade smoked turkey is being tossed in everything from pasta to these spicy burritos, who’s really going to complain? It ain’t Hamburger Helper at least. (which by the way costs more than a take out pizza after you buy the kit and the burger and still tastes like it did in the 90s. And let’s be real, there can’t be an ounce of nutritional value in there… Want to guess who rolled the bones and gave it a shot recently?)
So leftover chopped turkey and some zesty fajita spices got this weeknight back on track.
And then it was gone in a matter of minutes.
Not sure how to smoke a Turkey Breast? I’ve got you covered!
