Thanksgiving Gobbler Rolls

These Thanksgiving Gobbler Rolls are seriously the most DELICIOUS way to transform those Thanksgiving leftovers into something truly mouth-watering! A tender sweet roll dough packed with mashed potatoes, corn, roasted turkey and stuffing topped with “gravy” icing and cranberry relish garnish!

Question – what’s your favorite part of the Thanksgiving meal?  Is the eating it when it’s straight out of the oven with your loved ones all around?  Or is it that 2am fridge raid for those cold turkey sandwiches?  Or what about leftovers the next day – or as my Mom would call it “Thanksgiving #2”? For me it’s all of them but honestly I’d have to say my all time favorite is how I get to revamp those leftovers into something incredible. You’ve seen my Gobbler Wrap and Gobbler Pizza. However I have to be honest guys, this recipe today… it’s something special.  Like if I had to choose between this and my gobbler pizza, this will win out  And you all know how much I LOOOOOOOOVE pizza.  But this, dear God people it’s literally everything you would expect how a cinnamon roll would be BUT instead of sweet it’s full-on savory Thanksgiving-fied!

So did you survive Thanksgiving yesterday? Hopefully no family squabbles, dry birds or failed desserts.  Growing up Thanksgiving was a big deal in my house; hell any day where there was a huge feast was a big day. But for us Thanksgiving is where Mom would cook for days, pies upon pies, and people coming in and out of the house all day long. Our main meal was at 2pm, 3pm if Mom was making a backup meal.  Yes you read that right, back up meal.

Transform those Thanksgiving leftovers into something truly spectacular!

Are you a burger purist?  Do you insist that a burger is comprised of beef and nothing else?  Do you scoff at the thought of a chicken or turkey burger?  Does the mention of a veggie burger make you shudder in pure disdain? Well this post isn’t for you. However I think you’re a fool to skip past this post and recipe.  I kid you not; you’re seriously missing out on something truly incredible and delicious.  Be a rebel here. Be like those folks that decided to try salted caramel or candied bacon.

It’s funny as growing up veggies were my nemesis.  I would turn my nose up at the thought of eating zucchini.  I was all about the beef (’bout that beef, ’bout that beef.. sorry was channeling Meghan Trainor there for a minute). I was one of those burger snobs.  Burgers had to beef and nothing else.
Be a Burger Rebel and make these delicious burgers!

2 Seriously Delicious Game Time Recipes

Growing up in Pittsburgh there were a few things that you were born into.  You were born with the notion that all salads come with fries on them.  You were born into a language of it’s own – Pittsburghese.  And you were born into Pittsburgh Football nation. You were a die-hard black ‘n gold football fan.  And lastly, you were born into serving killer food during those football games. Being that house that hosted the games was a right of passage. Some folks waited decades to become the house where we gathered.  Some just impressed right out of the gate and they took over the hosting.

Up until we started the remodel on the house, mine was that house that hosted the games.  I’d put out a spread that would rival any Vegas buffet. Now to know me you know I never do simple.  While I love simple chips and Pace® Salsas, I need to take them to another level. That’s why I’m super stoked share with you 2 seriously delicious game time recipes featuring Pace® salsa and picante sauces.  We’re making game time saucy!  Today I’m sharing with you 2, yes TWO, recipes. One is for my Creamy Chicken & Salsa Pinwheels and the other is for my famous Double Bean Cheeeeesy Bean Dip.
Today I’m serving you up 2 killer recipes that will go perfectly with the big game!

Crantastic Healthy Craisins® Dried Cranberries and Turkey Wrap

Living a healthy lifestyle I incorporate Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries into my daily diet. They are that sweet treat without the guilt! I love them in my stuffing mixtures, in salads, cookies (fyi these in oatmeal cookies are PHENOMENAL!), cakes, added in pork dishes, sauces and…my mouth.  LOL To me, these are nature’s most perfect treat.

Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries, to me, make dishes taste so much better and honestly make my choice of living a healthy lifestyle delicious and easy.  Like take today’s recipe for example.  I’m a ‘mix-it-together’ kid; always have been. I was that kid that didn’t necessarily mix everything together on a single plate but rather couldn’t take just a bite of one thing on the fork.  If I had meatloaf I had to have mashed potatoes on the fork with it.  If I ate a bologna sandwich, I had to have chips on the sandwich; never on the side. So when I partnered up with Ocean Spray® Craisins® Dried Cranberries I knew immediately what I wanted to make. I needed to share with the world my favorite wrap; my Crantastic Healthy Craisins® Dried Cranberries and Turkey Wrap!

You see this wrap I have been making for years.  It’s one of my favorite go-to healthy recipes.  And honestly the only thing I change is if I want to use an actual wrap or if I want to use a veggie wrap (i.e., lettuce or even shaved veggies). But it’s always roasted turkey, jicama (so love that stuff), carrot match sticks, spinach, cheese (because everything gets cheese in my world), a wee bit of ranch and of course a huge handful of Craisins® Dried Cranberries.

Seriously this is one of the BEST wraps you’ll ever make!

Cucumber Ham Rollups

So when you think of deli meats and cheeses I’m betting 99% of you are thinking about a sandwich, right? If you’re like me you grew up on taking a bagged lunch or lunch box to school with some piece of fruit, either a bag of chips or a cookie and a sandwich.  If mine wasn’t pb&j it was bologna or ham and cheese. However times are changing. We’re more cognizant of the foods we eat, what it’s made with and honestly if it’s on the healthier side.  Kids lunches are getting more diverse and we are getting more adventurous in the kitchen. I, for one, am loving this.

When it comes to deli meats and cheeses I am a HUGE snob.  I’m sorry but I want QUALITY, incredible flavor and frankly, no additive crap in it.  I’ve been buying Castle Wood Reserve® deli meats and cheese for quite some time now.  Mr. Fantabulous and I both love them as they taste incredible and I never have to worry about ‘stuff’ in them. So when these great folks reached out to me asking me to take their deli products beyond the sandwich I went with something, honestly, I’ve been making for quite sometime now.

You see I love bread, carbs, dough… all that deliciousness is incredible BUT it’s the bane of my existence when it comes to losing weight.  I swear I see a loaf of bread and without even taking one bite my thighs jiggle just a tad more.  Or if I see a roll, it’s like “HELLO let’s add some flabby here”.  So I had to find alternatives and reduce my bread intake.  That’s when I turned to veggies.  I use veggies not only for pasta and pizza (yes try my spaghetti squash pizza crust!) but also for ‘sandwiches’ or in this case, rolls and wraps.
Totally delicious, totally easy and way healthier than other rolls!
