Turkey Stuffed Fried Crepes

Leftover turkey got a fancy makeover: stuffed the crepes with turkey and fried…

After Thanksgiving, we obviously serve turkey for the next few days. I’ve been having turkey for the last 3 days and my Man has started to frown. I had some more leftover turkey that I wanted to serve for tonight’s dinner. I had to turn that into something fancy and make my Man fall for it.

I made a filling with turkey and stuffed into the crepes and fried in oil till golden. Turned out delicious and my Man gobbled up. Mission accomplished.

You could replace turkey with chicken or canned tuna.
