The no 'left-over' turkey suggestions

Crockett67 | Dec 27, 2013 06:36 AM

This past Thanksgiving I traveled so didn't have any leftovers. As a result I decided, even though my SO and I spent Christmas blissfully alone this year, I roasted a 10 lbs turkey with a small spread.

The next day, I made my Mom's version of SOS with some of the leftovers. (Toast with a layer of mash, turkey, smothered in turkey gravy.) As we were eating, my SO mentioned that he's never had turkey leftovers made into other things growing up. As in his Mother would just serve the same meal over and over until the leftovers were gone. So he loved the SOS.

This sparked a little game I want to play by using the rest of the turkey in new dishes so it never feels like 'leftovers.'

I'm thinking tonight I will make a turkey sandwich with stuffing, gravy, and smear of cranberry sauce. Saturday morning I'm thinking of making Kentucky hot browns, maybe turkey divan with the leftover cheese sauce for dinner. Sunday maybe turkey hash? Suggestions?
