Chef John's Turkey Noodle Casserole
This delicious casserole is for leftover leftovers. I don't know about you, but after a few days of eating Thanksgiving leftovers, no matter how tasty they originally were, I want something that makes me forget there's even turkey in it. Since ingredients like garam masala, spicy cheese, and peppers aren't typically used in the meal, they work wonderfully here to disguise the last of a holiday bird.
Tex-Mex Turkey Soup
Not only is this soup yummy, it sure beats leftover turkey sandwiches for days on end following a holiday!
Turkey a la King Deluxe
My boyfriend and I made a rather large turkey breast and it was just the two of us, which meant a lot of leftover turkey meat! A few days later, I had to come up with something quick for dinner, and used things I had on hand. It's not exactly gourmet but a good take on the nostalgic dish and everyone at work the next day said it smelled GREAT! Serve over hot buttered rice.
Sweet Leftover Turkey Salad
I use leftover turkey for this quick salad with all the right textures. The raisin sweetens the salad, the sunflowers add a crunch, and the turkey is the heart of the salad.
Cindy's Turkey Salad
Great for leftover Thanksgiving turkey! I threw it together and decided to write down the measurements. Everyone loved it! For a kick add more jalapeno pepper!
Thanksgiving Leftovers Stuffed Shells
This recipe sounds odd, but I promise it makes for an unbelievable, rich hearty meal! Family and friends all show up a couple days AFTER Thanksgiving knowing this will be on the menu... Cheesy and delicious, and feeds a crowd!
Apple Curry Turkey Pita
This is great for turkey leftovers. Simple, quick and flavorful. This is a good one for substitutions too. I've used white wine in place of lemon, sour cream in place of yogurt, chicken in place of turkey and Indian naan in place of the pita. Enjoy!
How to Make Turkey Manicotti
When you're looking for something completely different to use up those turkey leftovers, this could be it! A tender, eggy pasta-like crepe enfolds the cheesy, amazing filling. You can make the crepes and filling ahead of time.
These light and tasty wraps are great for lunch, or slice them smaller and they make wonderful party appetizers or great little after-school snacks.
Monte Cristo Sandwich - the Real One
This is the real Monte Cristo sandwich. It has a nice thick batter and is absolutely delicious. Enjoy hot sandwich with currant jelly or make a currant sauce with currant jelly, water and heavy cream.
Grandma Carlson's Turkey Pot Pie
This savory comfort food dish is the most popular Thanksgiving leftover meal in our house. With the flakiest of pie crust and fresh herbs, it'll be a hit in yours as well.
This is a great recipe to use up leftover turkey or chicken. It does not taste anything like leftovers. Makes about six 2-inch croquette balls. Definitely need to double or triple recipe for large groups as I can eat 2 croquettes easily.
