For this recipe, you’ll need some leftover Thanksgiving turkey, or you could use turkey breast steaks instead.

The great part of this recipe is that you can use your favorite brand of peanut butter! I suggest using creamy peanut butter, but you can also use crunchy if you like or if that’s all you have.

Peanut butter is a great pantry staple. Consequently, there’s a ton of creative and delicious recipes using peanut butter.

Many peanut butter recipes are perfect for the whole family!

From festive and seasonal desserts (like my peanut butter cup cheesecake), soups, and even main courses, peanut butter is a versatile and affordable ingredient.

It’s also a delectable and nourishing addition to a variety of meals and even drinks. Whether during the holidays, weeknight meals, and even breakfast and lunch!
