The spring onions in this leftover turkey recipe not only boost delicious flavor, but add wonderful health benefits. As little as spring onions (or scallions) may be, they are a great source of vitamin K, which helps to regulate blood sugar. That’s something we all need after holiday meals! Vitamin K is also used by many pregnant women to help relieve nausea, and it’s known to help bones retain calcium.

Aside from the health benefits, these little buggers are super tasty and cute!

According to the judges, we have a winner. 🙂 Let me know what your kiddos think!
