Leftovers are a staple in our household but eating the same thing over and over again can get boring. With the holidays here, leftovers are bound to be in abundance. I have started going through my favorite recipes to find new ways to freshen up those leftovers from Thanksgiving. Using my leftover turkey I remade it into one of my favorite recipes, and the best part is no one needs to know it came from leftovers. My leftover turkey broccoli braid recipe makes a great dish to pass at your next potluck. As you are cooking this wonderful meal though, I’d like to remind you to please do not forget to be burn aware!
It’s easy to get distracted this holiday season, with so much going on and so much to do one simple mistake can cause a fire and burn accident.
Shriners Hospitals for Children Be Burn Aware campaign reminds all of us of simple safety tips that could save lives. They have tips and resources available that we can all check out so we’re sure that our homes and families are safe. You can even test your safety knowledge with a five-minute quiz.
Did you know during the holiday activities can increase the risk of house fires and burns due to more cooking, open flames, and decorations?
Shriners Hospitals for Children recently conducted a survey, and it revealed some habits during the holiday season that could lead to serious injury or even death.
1. Don’t leave lit candles unattended. 27% of U.S. adults surveyed admit to leaving lit candles within reach of children. 2. Turn pot handles toward the back of the stove to keep them out of a child’s reach. 25% of Americans surveyed reported that they don’t take this simple action.
3. When you’re cooking, keep a lid or cookie sheet nearby to put out a potential fire.47% of the people who took the survey skip this simple tip.
4. Water fresh-cut trees daily. 45% of Americans surveyed do not water live Christmas trees every day, even though 70% reported they knew they should. A dry tree can ignite in seconds making this one of the deadliest types of fires!
5. Keep trees away from heat sources like fire places, heaters, and candles.
6. Inspect your lights. Replace any that have kinked or frayed wires.

After Thanksgiving, you are always left with turkey, so what now? Here is one of my favorite recipes that I make with my leftover turkey. It is simple and so good! The kids even love it and its filled with broccoli so win, win!
Easy Leftover Turkey and Broccoli Braid Recipe
- 2 packages Great Value crescent rolls
- 3 cups left over turkey (chopped into small pieces)
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 1/2 cup chopped broccoli
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 3 tsp Dill seasoning
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 egg white, slightly beaten
1. Preheat oven to 375*.
2. Combine chopped turkey, broccoli, onion, mayonnaise, dill, salt and garlic powder in large bow (making sure to mix together very well.)
3. Unroll first package of Great Value crescent rolls being careful not to separate. Arrange the longest side of Great Value crescent rolls along the width of a rectangle baking sheet. Repeat with remaining package of crescent rolls.
4. Using dough/pizza roller, roll over crescent rolls to seal all perforations. On the longest sides, cut dough into strips 1 1/2 inches apart and 3 inches deep. This will leave 6 inches in the center to put the filling.
5. Spread filling into the center and sprinkle the cheese on top.
6. To braid, lift strips of dough across mixture to meet in center, twisting each strip one turn. Repeat down the length of the dough. I had an extra piece of crescent roll left and created a cute bow for the middle.
7. Brush egg white over the crescent rolls.
8. Bake for 25-28 minutes.
Your whole family will enjoy this recipe! They will never even know it was made with leftovers too!
