These are nice to make with leftover turkey. I like to really smash my meat as not as keen about shredded or diced. Found similar recipes that uses more spices or a soup made gravy and I prefer this simple way. I say, if this is too simple tasting for you, jazz it up. Any recipe can be adapted. No hard and fast rules. I will say the original recipe called for a teeny, and I mean teeny amount of minced onion. Looking at my notes, I see some add pimento to this as well. If I were to add anything, it would probably be cooked fresh mushrooms.
