Mike Nelson is turning up the heat in our new segment, Cooking with Mike! Mike’s admittedly terrible cooking skills make him the perfect host for this cooking series, which is sponsored by Specialty Appliance.

This week’s recipe is for Black Friday Nachos.


Cooked, diced dark meat turkey
Mashed potatoes
Cranberry sauce
Tomatillo salsa/salsa verde
Cranberry sauce
Roasted jalapeno

Cheese sauce:
4 ounces of Brie cheese with the rind removed
1/4 cup diced onion
1-2 tablespoons of flour
½ cup heavy cream
Fry the turkey meat in oil or butter until it has nice caramelization
Add tomatillo salsa/salsa verde to turkey meat and set aside


Add roasted jalapeno and lime to cranberry sauce to taste.
Warm up the mashed potatoes and stuffing.

For the Brie cheese sauce:
Sauté diced onion in butter, once translucent and add flour and make a roux. Add cream then add cheese, continuing to whisk until smooth. Once cheese melts, it is ready to serve.

To assemble nachos:
Buy a nice bag of your favorite chips, add the warm mashed potatoes and stuffing. Top with hot turkey and cranberry sauce, then finish off with Brie cheese sauce on top
