This is a recipe very near and dear to me – Mike even asked me if I was sure I wanted to post it. This is what my grandma Hazel makes every time we visit, and it is what we always have for holiday meals. It sounds totally weird to everyone else, but it makes perfect sense to us!
This is also a great recipe if you have leftover turkey and you don’t know what to do with it! Serve it in sandwich form, or eat it plain.

Cooked turkey breast, cooled and cubed
Mayonnaise- Hellman's to be exact.
Ingredients in the sauce:
2 cups of sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup of vinegar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons celery seed
2 tablespoons mustard
1 (15 ounce) can of evaporated milk
Combine all ingredients into a sauce pan - except for the milk and bring to a boil. Once it is fully boiling, remove it from the heat, and pour in the evaporated milk while continuing to whisk. Once combine pour into a bowl and let it cool.
In a large bowl pour about about a cup of the prepared sauce - scoop in about 1/3 cup of mayo whisk together until smooth. Add the cubed turkey, add some onion and celery then stir it together. Continue mixing the ingredients together until you have the perfect mixture for you. If you like a lot of onion, add more onion, if you like a lot of celery, add more, etc.
