I like to make turkey a la king (I usually use about 2 cups of various colors of peppers and serve it over mashed potatoes) and turkey and Havarti quiche. Had a turkey sandwich for breakfast I'm going to make stock with the leftovers today, so I might make some turkey-noodle soup, too.

My mom suggested turkey tacos or burritos - toss chopped turkey with Mexican seasonings, heat with some tomato sauce and roll up in tortillas with taco toppings.

I have lots left over (by design) so a few pounds will go into the freezer, too.

Since I cooked an 18.65-pound free-range bird for just the 2 of us, I have PLENTY of leftovers to experiment with - lol!!

So far we'll be having the traditional turkey & swiss cheese with lettuce & mayo on white bread, & of course hot open-face turkey sandwiches with either melted swiss or a sprinkling of Gorgonzola. Then hubby has requested creamed turkey & veggies poured over Pepperidge Farm puff pastry patty shells (which is sort of a free-form pot pie - & much easier to make - lol). Plus there'll be white turkey chili, soup, tetrazzini &/or divan, mole with corn tortillas - the list is, luckily for me, endless.

I cooked a 18 plus bird too for just the 2 of us. A turkey panini is good too, with Havarti cheese on ciabatta roll.

I'm weird - I could eat turkey for a whole week straight and not get tired of it!
However, the family's different - so a few dishes we're having are:
turkey/root veggie/noodle soup
turkey pie (2-crust type made with a cream cheese base)
turkey quesadillas with jalapenos, pepper jack & avocados

Mine was a 22 pounder, I cooked a 16 2 weeks ago, and I've got another 22 and a 21 in the freezer. yum! (not only are they tasty, I think I spent around $30 for all 4.
