Celebrity chef Bobby Flay joined the morning show to give you some ideas of what you can do with your turkey leftovers. He shared a recipe for "Stuffing" Crusted Turkey Cutlets and gave us a few more recipes for you to enjoy.
Bobby also gave us the following tip when you're cooking a big Thanksgiving dinner for a lot of people. He says the key to a good Thanksgiving is to keep warm chicken stock on the stove. Bobby says you can reheat the turkey you've sliced with some warm chicken stock. You can thin out the gravy if it's a little thick. He says all of these things are incredibly important.
