Blog Flog: Buffalo Turkey Dip

Who has leftover roasted turkey in their freezer from the holidays? I do. For the past few years, I’ve turned some of those leftovers into cheesy baked buffalo turkey dip, and it generally coincides with a TV event that calls for extra snacks. Of course, baked dips don’t require any particular occasion – Netflix is a totally legit excuse to make a gooey, cheesy dip too. It’s so fantastic—the very best kind of curl-up-on-the-couch food.


It couldn’t be easier, really – you mix softened cream cheese and sour cream (some recipes call for mayo), stir in some Frank’s Red Hot sauce, grated cheese and chopped leftover roasted turkey (which can be swapped into so many great recipes – chili, burgers, tacos and the like), spoon it into a baking dish and bake until bubbly. Scatter with extra cheese first, natch.

Thanks to the Turkey Farmers of Canada for supporting this site and what I do. They have their own website full of turkey recipes and resources, if you’re looking for more turkey direction any time of year.

Ingredients

1 8 oz (250 g) pkg cream cheese, cut into chunks

1-2 cups chopped or shredded cooked turkey

1/2 cup sour cream

1 1/2 cups shredded old white or orange cheddar

1/2 cup Buffalo-style hot sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot)

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1 green onion, chopped

cilantro (optional)

Directions

1In a medium bowl, blend the cream cheese (I mix or whip it first to get rid of any lumps, which will melt as you bake it anyway...), turkey, sour cream, cheddar and hot sauce, stirring until well-blended.

2Transfer to a shallow baking dish, scatter with mozzarella (or more cheddar) and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until bubbly and golden. Sprinkle with green onions and/or cilantro and serve warm, with crusty bread or tortilla chips.

    I made something similar at Christmas. Your recipe calls for a less spicy ratio of hot sauce to cream cheese, so my husband would probably like this version better 🙂
    I use leftover turkey in place of all kinds of other meats when I have it around. Can’t go wrong with turkey 🙂
