If you are like us on Boxing Day, then you’ll wake up to plates full of food left over from Christmas Day…. Not that we are complaining!! The only down fall we can see is, there are only so many turkey sandwiches we can eat. So we’ve been shifting through online recipes, recipe books and our gran’s little black book of secret recipes to find the perfect Boxing Day dinner where we can use up the left over turkey. This recipe we found is courtesy of Muscle Food, but with a few little tweaks of our own. It’s a simple recipe and most of the ingredients will already be in your kitchen.
Give this a go this Boxing Day and let us know how you get on.
