I filled their wet food bowls with little pieces of turkey that weren't good for anything else. One bowl's empty and the other just has a few pieces left in it.

After about three days of sandwiches, open faced sandwiches, What ever was left went into the stock pot for turkey soup. What ever was left over from the big day, it too went into the pot. Stuffing, mashed potatoes, everything except the cranberry sauce. That went into my tummy. I never told the kids it was turkey soup. According to them, they all hated turkey soup. Yet the pot was always empty at the end of the meal.

Funny thing yesterday, the carcass was left to the cats instead of used for soup. To each their own I guess!

What do I do with leftover turkey? Let the bird him/herself answer: Gobble, Gobble!

I just thought of this one-- turkey makes an ideal Kentucky Hot Brown Sandwich. Google it if you are unfamiliar with this plate of goodness.

I've got the turkey breast in the oven along with some carrots roasting alongside in the pan. You have to make Firsties in order to create Leftovers.

Everyone who left here took some leftover zip loc bags of turkey & some sides too. We have a small bag left, a few sandwichs, we will only eat it once, maybe twice then it goes to the cats.

I bought a 3 lb Butterball breast for "leftovers" etc.

Turkey sandwiches - Spread one side of whole wheat bread with a combo of dried cranberries and cream cheese. Sprinkle with chopped cashews, then top with thin slices of cucumber & red onion. Place thin slices of turkey breast on top of the cucumbers & onions. Season with salt and pepper, & top with the other slice of whole wheat bread.

Turkey Tetrazzini is another favorite.

This one always blows me away. LOL

That one sounds really good Cerise. I bet even Hubby would eat it. Thanks for the link.

Turkey sammiches cold. It's the law!

Turkey Panini's. On fresh sourdough bread.

Turkey Egg Rolls. Stir fry the Chinese chicken.

Time to play with the pie maker mess with some other ideas with the left overs.

I decided a few years ago that I would not boil another turkey carcass. I got the Meat off and the rest went into the trash. No more T-Day night sessions until 2 am, picking at the darn thing. I've had relaxed T-Days since.
