Prep Tips

Buy pre-packed sliced turkey, use your leftover holiday turkey or prepare your own ground turkey at home! If you prepare your own ground turkey, place a bit of oil (olive or sesame) in a pan until hot and add in 1 lbs. turkey as well as 1 tbsp of soy sauce or sesame oil (if you have any). Cook the turkey until it is no longer pink and use the necessary amount for your family.
