These Turkey Cranberry Swiss Sliders are a great way to use some of that leftover turkey and cranberry sauce! Even better they’re easy to make and delicious! Leftover turkey win!!
Last week we had the absolute best time having a friends turkey dinner. The idea of roasting a turkey mid-week seemed a bit bonkers, but it was great because we all went home with a tonne of leftovers! YEAY! The best part of having a turkey is the leftovers and incorporating them into your everyday meals is surprisingly easy. With there being 5 of us at Alberta Mama’s we thought it would be a fun idea to each take our leftovers and use them to create a “typical leftover meal,” something that would typically get made in our homes. It’s actually quite telling of each family’s personality.
The girls and I roasted a big beautiful Alberta Turkey a few nights ago! We intentionally got a bigger bird than needed so that we all had plenty of yummy leftovers to take home- basically a #momwin. I decided to try a quick weeknight creation with our turkey leftovers and made a Canadian comfort food dish, poutine! Check out the recipe below…
Adapted from a recipe on My Fitness Pal
- 1 medium spaghetti squash
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- salt & pepper
- Other spices to taste – I used onion powder for example, but you can use real onions too!
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese – your choice what kind
- 1-1 1/2 cups of chopped turkey
- 2 cups egg whites
Self-care during the holiday season is almost impossible with all the things on our to-do lists. But, getting run down over Christmas is a very real risk if you don’t carve out a little time for yourself. Relaxation has never been easier with an at home massage with Mobile Massage YEG!

Bone Broth has become very trendy in recent months. The health benefits of this simple dish our Grandmothers have been making for years are hard to ignore. Who doesn’t want better gut health and great skin? There are so many reasons to drink more broth but the main one we like is that it tastes good. It is delicious on its own, is a great base for soups, and can be added to gravy’s and sauces easily. Last week we hosted an Alberta Mamas Turkey Dinner with Alberta Turkey (see more on that post and what we made here) and as delicious the whole meal was I was mostly excited for the bones of the turkey so I could make bone broth the next day.
As we’ve shared before, we think experience gifts are a pretty awesome way to go about buying presents for the holidays. Take a peek at why we love them here. Need ideas for experience type gifts for the kiddos on your list? Look no further!

The Alberta Mamas planned for a fun-filled evening this past Monday with delicious food and of course it had to include some Alberta Turkey! Making a roast turkey isn’t just reserved for the holidays and special occasions, but rather for sharing those great moments with friends and family.
I don’t celebrate Christmas, I never have. I grew up in beautiful Jasper National Park. Although now it is a lovely diverse community, when I was growing up in the 90’s it wasn’t so diverse. There were not even a handful of Muslim families and basically 2 Arab families. Finding a sense of community based on my faith and heritage was impossible. Luckily for me, although predominantly Caucasian, the community of Jasper National Park is made up of some of the most amazing, supportive and accepting people I have ever met. We weren’t the only minorities, but for me it sure seemed so!
