Ingredients
  • 2 large sweet potatoes cooked whole in the microwave, oven or crock pot
  • 1 cup cooked/leftover turkey, chopped
  • 6 oz bacon (about 6 slices, chopped)
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced (button or crimini/baby bella)
  • ½ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup non-dairy milk (plain and unsweetened)
  • 2 tsp Cajun seasoning
  • ¼ cup scallions/green onions for garnish, sliced thinly
Instructions
  1. Heat a skillet to medium heat.
  2. Chop the bacon crosswise into half inch pieces. Add to the hot skillet and cook, stirring occasionally (about 10 minutes).
  3. While the bacon is cooking, slice the mushrooms and chop the turkey. When the bacon is browned, remove it from the pan using a slotted spoon. Set aside.
  4. Add the sliced mushrooms to the pan with the bacon grease. Sautee the mushrooms until they are softened (about 10 minutes). Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon and set aside.
  5. Add the chopped turkey to the hot pan and remaining bacon grease and cook until the turkey is warm and has a little color (about 5 minutes). Remove from pan and set aside.
  6. Cut the cooked sweet potatoes down the middle and fluff the inside with a fork. Top with your desired amount of sauce, mushrooms, turkey, bacon and scallions. I could bathe in this Cajun cream sauce and I like my sweet potato stuffed full of toppings, so I split everything in two and fill them up. It's delicious!
  7. I hope you find this recipe to be an enjoyable, easy and creative way to use your leftover turkey. Please let me know what you think in the comments below!
