Turkey Dinner Muffins

"I love experimenting in the kitchen," relates Margaret Berardi of Bridgeport, Connecticut. "That's how I created these muffins that use up leftovers from a turkey dinner. Team them with a bowl of soup and some fresh fruit for a satisfying lunch," she suggests.

    These muffins have been a family favorite since I first saw the recipe in the top holiday magazine years ago!

    I was surprised at how good these turned out. I just need to try it with cranberry sauce on top next time.
