What will you do with your leftover turkey?

I will probably make a turkey pie, open-face turkey sandwiches with gravy, maybe some ground turkey burgers. So what do you make with your leftover turkey?

We won't have one until Christmas but with that I'll
make sandwiches and soup. Turkey isn't our favorite meat so
I buy the smallest one possible.

Our leftover turkey will be in Chicago and we will be back in Virginia. But if I had the leftovers, I would certainly make tetrazzini and some nice sandwiches.

Turkey and Cranberry wraps, Turkey paninis, and Turkey Salads.

I'm planning on making extra cranberry sauce because I can't stand turkey without it.

Last year, by the time I sent home a couple of "care packages" with my children, we only had enough left for sandwiches the next day.
This year, I bought a 22 lb. bird, so hopefully I'll have some leftover. We love turkey & dressing sandwiches. I also like to freeze small packages for soup, a la king, turkey salad, turkey tettrazini, hot browns, etc. I also boil the carcass for good broth, which I freeze in a large ziplock to use later.
I got this from my aunt, a professional. Cousin said whenever they saw a bird on the table, the next night they could count on soup.
We love turkey, and I cook it all year long.

As many sandwiches as I can possibly eat in 3-4 days! If there is anything left over - turkey-pot-pies, turkey noodle soup, turkey a la king on toast. I always buy a bigger bird than I need for "turkey day" because, for me, the left overs are the best part ... and I don't have to cook for a few days!

I love the idea of "care packages" Send them home with some goodies. I was looking for those those little foil tins in sections, because my parents used to make "tv dinners" from our leftovers, but no one sells them anymore.

Three days max on the leftovers, but yea, sandwiches, pot pies, and maybe burgers with lettuce, tomatoes, horseradish.
