One leftover recipe that always goes really well is to make a shepard's pie using leftover turkey, gravy, stuffing and veggie. Layer in a loaf pan and freeze if possible for a later date, or have it later in the week.

Shepards pie is a great suggestion. Use your leftover mashed potatoes too.

Use leftover stuffing and turkey with this one...Leftover Chicken Casserole.

Turkey soup. There's that carcass leftover to make a nice broth.

We don't cook a huge turkey. This year with just the two of us, I got the smallest I could find-a 13-pounder- for dinner.

We use the leftovers for another turkey dinner or two, turkey sandwiches, turkey salad and soup.

Stacked Thanksgiving sandwiches:

A slice of thick-cut country white bread (like Panara country white) lightly toasted. Spread it with cranberry sauce then layer on reheated sliced turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. Top with gravy.

I love a turkey and stuffing sandwich, open faced and drenched in gravy. I have been known to spread cranberry sauce on the bread first as well!

Good one! That is what I was going to say. We always have lots of dark meat left over so this works well. Mixed with beans and sour cream and whatever other goodies you want to roll up in there....

A tradition at my mothers is to have Club sandwhices for brunch the next day. Somebody usually runs out and gets some fresh cut fries from a chip truck.
