  • 3 cups leftover smoked turkey, shredded (can use roasted turkey or shredded chicken. But the smoked flavor is unbeatable!)
  • 4 oz half a packet light cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • ½ cup Frank's RedHot (hot sauce. No substitutions. It has to be Franks!)
  • ½ cup blue cheese crumbles


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 
  • Mix all ingredients (except blue cheese!) together in a large bowl. When everything is well combined, transfer into a small oven safe baking dish. Top with blue cheese crumbles and place in oven, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, or until the dip starts to bubble.
  • Serve with chips or celery sticks.


A friend of mine noted she makes this (with chicken) weekly, and puts some ranch dressing and chopped celery into the mix. Sounds like a great plan and I’ll definitely try that next time. If you do add ranch, I suggest to go a wee bit lighter on the Greek yogurt to keep the liquid proportions the same (so it doesn’t come out watery).
