Give that extra platter of turkey a makeover with this recipe for BBQ Turkey Flatbread, a quick and easy snack that is perfect for munching during the weekend football games!
Turkey is actually pretty near and dear to our hearts here at Garnish with Lemon as Minnesota – our home state – ranks #1 nationally in turkey farming with 450 turkey farm families raising 46 million turkeys each year. Since about 95% of Americans eat turkey at Thanksgiving, November is a busy time of year for Minnesota turkey farmers.
Prep for this BBQ Turkey Flatbread recipe couldn’t be easier (which is a relief for anyone tasked with cooking Thanksgiving dinner). Simply chop or shred your leftover turkey. Grab your favorite flatbread from the grocery store along with some cheese and your favorite bottled BBQ sauce. A few red onion slices and chopped cilantro are all you need to pull this dish together.
