meet.make.turkey buns.

One of my absolute favourite things about Christmas dinner isn't actually the meal itself.... it is the leftovers. Seriously.... the anticipation of a turkey bun almost makes me want to fast forward through the meal! (Almost)

I have spent quite a few years perfecting the formula for the best way to build a turkey bun... and here it is!


  • 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)
  • Gravy
  • 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?


  1. you make the same turkey buns that I make! and yes. they are the best. THE best :) My hubby requests stuffing buns. haha. it's the same only no turkey, and no cranberry sauce. (he's crazy, and doesn't like the cran. crazy, i tell you). and now i'm off to make my own turkey bun! hope your christmas was fantastic! xo

  2. I'm terrible at using up leftovers in creative ways. This looks really great!

    Happy New Years girls!! :)
