    I was just thinking about all the things I'm going to be making to use up all the leftover turkey in my fridge and was wondering... what do YOU guys do with all that leftover turkey? Soup? Sandwiches? Feed it to the dogs? Any good recipe ideas??

    The turkey is sandwiches for lunch today, tonight we have a rerun of last nights dinner. Whatever is leftover will become Turkey Tetrazzini, Turkey Pot Pie and then soup.

    I've got just enough left over for a few sammiches, but right now I'm boiling down the carcass to make stock.

    Hi y'all, from the deep South. How about some turkey gumbo. Add the turkey to your chopped ham (or tasso) and smoked sausage. It sure is a good way to use all those eleftovers.

    I used the liver to make gravy. I also had some turkey jelly leftover that I threw in the gravy. If I'd been thinking about it, I could probably have made a wicked terrine. Damn.

    Growing up for me in the Southwest it was turkey tacos. Or if you are really want a bit more authentic Mexican try mole. Recipes from Chef Rick Bayless - Rick Bayless | Frontera The recipe to make mole is very complicated and time consuming but there are a few commercial products that are decent.

    I love turkey, so turkey for days is ok by me....it is about 80% of my protein source anyway.

    :smile: This yr. we were heavily blessed.

    My daughter and her husband had us drive to his parents place which meant there wasn't any cleaning, leftovers and other headaches for me. Even the drive there and back was a breeze.:smile:.

    In the times when I've had it in my place, I've had the sense to ask in a few single men and a few less financially fortunate, its a great way to get rid of most of the excess, what little was left was eaten by Sunday afternoon.

    We don`t have Thanksgiving but we often have turkey for Christmas or Easter, it really depends on the tradition in one`s home.
    We usually share food with our neighbours here, whether it`s meat or sweets, you fill out a plate and you give it to people you like.

    The biggest we ever had was one my Dad raised for us one year. It was fed on the best and weighed in at 33lb. There were only 8 of us for dinner and we ended up eating it for weeks. Curry, risotto, pie, sandwiches etc etc.

    I wish he would raise some more but doesn't have the room since he moved from the Country into town.

    I freeze most leftovers to enjoy a couple of months later, nice to have a huge stand-up freezer :)
