Turkey & Stuffing Eggs Benedict
November 18, 2016
"A few dys ago, I shared a recipe using holiday leftovers to make quesadillas & noted how unusual I thought it was to find a leftovers recipe that targeted the breakfast/brunch meal. Well I still think it's unusual, but to my surprise it happened again. This recipe was shared in a Taste of Home article titled "25 New Ideas For Holiday Leftovers", Brittany Allyn of Nashville, Tennessee was credited & she had this to say: "This is a fun way to enjoy holiday leftovers as if presenting them for the 1st time. Serve for brunch w/champagne & cranberry juice." ENJOY!"
