I found a tasty recipe at my most used magazine collection of Cooking Light. This is actually a recipe for what to do with your left over Thanksgiving Turkey. I’m loving this recipe so much, it’s the combination of cheese, bread crumbs, potato and turkey that makes this delicious Turkey Cake so yummy. I added to this meal a tablespoon of Orange Marmalade in replacement of the cranberry sauce. ūüôā

  • 2¬† cups¬† chopped shiitake mushroom caps (about 4 ounces)
  • 1¬† garlic clove, minced
