Turkey is great in tacos. Sear it up with some chili and cumin and load it in a taco - top with the usual trimmings.

How about a curry?

And the ultimate comfort food... creamed turkey on toast (don't forget the little green peas)

:)

I guess the question should be what can't you do with left over turkey. Lots of great ideas here. I just love having left over turkey. So many possibilities. All the things I do have been mentioned here I think with the exception of sloppy toms.

We go to my BIL's. He doesn't believe in sending home leftovers or care packages. That is OK ! Today I went to the store for "just a couple things". You know how it goes -- $60 later, I scored a fresh/ not injected half bone in tureky breast and a pkg of two bone-in thighs. Tossed the thighs in the freezer and will roast the turkey breast Friday / along with some squash, dressing/ cranberries and make gravy and some mashed potatoes. Then there will be Proper Leftovers. I might have to make some little pies for some dessert this coming weekend too. I bought cat treats for the little girls, so they will have T'sgiving tomorrow too PLUS Turkey is one of the few people foods they get a taste of when we have leftovers.

My favorite cold turkey sandwich is made this way:

bottom slice bread, mayo, 1 piece crisp lettuce, avocado slices, turkey, dressing, cranberries, 1 more piece lettuce, more mayo on the top piece bread. The lettuce helps hold it all together. Variations allowed -- sometimes toast the bread, bacon slices. I will put sausage in the dressing, so no bacon. Best eaten with just the little light on in the kitchen, no not the refrigerator light, but that works.

Other than at least one leftover turkey dinner with all the leftover fixin's, turkey sandwiches, hot turkey sandwiches with gravy on them, 9-inch deep dish turkey pot pie, and turkey noodle or turkey rice soup are my usuals.

Do you share the turkey with your furry roommates? My two both had their fill of well-rinsed ham.

At least one more turkey dinner. Then sandwiches, definitely soup from the carcass. Maybe a pot pie. I sure like the sound of Whisks sandwich.
