Because we roast a turkey about once a month between October and April, I often have leftover turkey. I loved the Spicy Turkey Stew recipe posted not long ago (although I modified the recipe, and the 2nd time I made it, I changed it into a turkey chili mole). White chili is another favorite thing to do with leftover turkey. When I have leftover turkey and leftover gravy, I do fall victim to giving into my craving for turkey poutine...turkey casserole with the "bow tie" pasta is another favorite--mushrooms, leftover gravy, sour cream, evap milk, grated white cheddar cheese, edamene, and celery, and of course, leftover turkey. Cream of Turkey dinner soup where you add leftover stuffing (well, I do, but I make wildrice stuffing), some leftover cranberry sauce, turkey, leftover gravy, broth, leftover mashed potatoes, milk or cream. It is inspried by a Company's Coming recipe--from the Soup cookbook. Turkey and rice "muffins" which are really just rice and turkey, some melted butter, cooked for about 20 minutes in a muffin tin. Topped with leftover gravy. Basically, anything one would do with leftover chicken is what I do with leftover turkey. I'm sure others have some very creative ideas. I'll be watching for ideas as well, since turkey is on the menu for this weekend (our November turkey...) and will be on the agenda every month from now until sometime in April. We stock up on turkeys when they are cheap. We have to have turkey this weekend because we underestimated freezer space.

Is this thread about uses for leftover turkey?

Last year I took my leftovers and made a casserole layering the turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. It had cheese on top and may have had a "cream of" soup for moisture in the layers. I can't remember what it was called right now, but you've got the gist of it. You could pretty much wing it.

Last year I made a shepherd's pie type of dish with the LO turkey and veggies, using gravy as the liquid and topped it with stuffing in place of the mashed potatoes.

I guess it was good, I saved the recipe.

Oh--pac that sounds yummy. I think I'll have to make extra gravy and use that between the layers...

Thanks for the reminder, Pac. I've done that before and it was wonderful, but had forgotten about it. I called it a shephard's pie, even though I made it in a loaf pan. I found a cream of potato soup I'm hankering to try. It would work well with this.

Actually it's more of a turkey dinner strata.

I might have used gravy... I can't remember, it had something as a sort of binder. I've got it printed out somewhere. I remember now it was called Tastes Like Thanksgiving.

I ate up all my turkey drippings gravy with the first batch of stuffing, so now I'm going to try to make a bigger batch using the giblet stock. I must be geared to cooking on Thanksgiving, because all I've done today is cook.

Next, is Rice Krispy Treats.

Because of your reminder, I finally remembered all the layers I used: Turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing on top, served with more gravy.

I like your recipe title better.

Thanks, Pac. It's funny that it included everything we had the day before, but it just seemed different, also it made pretty slices.
