Turkey and Balsamic Onion Flatbread

This is it! We have reached the end of our Thanksgiving turkey! Can I get a "yippee" for not wasting any of our leftover Thanksgiving feast? My motto is "waste not, want not" and I love when that works out deliciously, as it has this week.

My husband LOVED this flatbread. Amazing things happen to vegetables when they are roasted, and onions are no exception. Combine those naturally released flavours with balsamic vinegar and molasses, and you can't beat it. 

2 yellow onions, sliced thinly
2 C chopped turkey
1/4 C balsamic vinegar
1 T oil
1 T molasses (our local Crosby's, of course!)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 C sharp white cheddar, grated

In a large bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, oil, molasses, and salt & pepper. Stir to combine, then toss with onions until well coated. Spread in a single-layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. Roast at 375` for about 15 minutes, or until onions are very soft. Remove from onion. Return all onions and sauce to the bowl. I find it easiest to do this by picking up the foil and almost pouring it all back into the bowl. Add turkey and stir to coat well. Spread onion and turkey mixture over flatbread (or tortilla, pita, pizza dough, etc) on a baking sheet, and top with cheese. Return to 375` oven for about 10 minutes.
