Cheese Turkey Stromboli Recipe Is The Ultimate Day-After-Thanksgiving Lunch

Stuffing it with leftover green bean casserole makes this stromboli extra rich and creamy

Thanksgiving dinner was absolutely delicious, but now you’ve got leftover turkey and green bean casserole. Sure, you could just reheat them and eat them again, but that feels a little been-there, done-that. To solve the Thanksgiving leftover quandary, we came up with a super creative and irresistibly flavorful way to enjoy all the extras — and it’s one that the whole family will love! Our cheese turkey stromboli recipe will have everyone eagerly anticipating lunch. It’s that good!

We take store-bought pizza dough (so easy breezy!) and stuff it with leftover turkey, green bean casserole, roasted red peppers and seasoned ricotta-parmesan mixture and bake it until golden. Once it’s ready, you can serve it with pasta sauce. Just imagine the look on your loved ones’ faces when you slice the stromboli and reveal all the yummy goodness that’s inside! We guarantee they will be gobbling it down and asking for seconds! Give it a try and leave us a comment below.
