Who has leftover roasted turkey in their freezer from the holidays? I do. For the past few years, I’ve turned some of those leftovers into cheesy baked buffalo turkey dip, and it generally coincides with a TV event that calls for extra snacks. Of course, baked dips don’t require any particular occasion – Netflix is a totally legit excuse to make a gooey, cheesy dip too. It’s so fantastic—the very best kind of curl-up-on-the-couch food.
It couldn’t be easier, really – you mix softened cream cheese and sour cream (some recipes call for mayo), stir in some Frank’s Red Hot sauce, grated cheese and chopped leftover roasted turkey (which can be swapped into so many great recipes – chili, burgers, tacos and the like), spoon it into a baking dish and bake until bubbly. Scatter with extra cheese first, natch.
Thanks to the Turkey Farmers of Canada for supporting this site and what I do. They have their own website full of turkey recipes and resources, if you’re looking for more turkey direction any time of year.
