What do you do with your Thanksgiving leftovers?

I usually have a ham or turky sandwich the next day, for lunch. Then I have more stuff for dinner that night. Turkey or ham and all the sides again. I've made turky soup at least twice, but I was the only one that ate it and I guess the novely of making it wore off, so I didn't do it last year and I'm not making it this year. I have also made split pea soup with the leftover ham. I may do that again this year. Tomorrow. What do you do with yours?

I always fix the leftovers for supper that night and then today we had turkey sandwhiches and salad that was left over. We still have pumpkin pie to eat tonight for a snack too.

I love making turkey soup. It is sooo good. My husband and I both love it. If there is too much it freezes well, so we can have more in a few weeks.

Hi Miami, I make a really simple turkey pot pie, or sandwhiches or salads. Tonight I think Im going to make a garden salad and add some turkey too it, we do that with chicken so I dont see why we couldnt with the turkey. I did it with some left over pork roast too. I love that. So much you can do with some left over turkey! Bay Lay Gray xx

We usually only have left overs for like 2 days and then it's all gone. But with what we have, we have the same as you, sandwiches and dinners.

We usually freeze some of the leftovers for later. We sometimes take some of the left over turkey and make a turkey enchalada pie with tortillas, cheeze and rotel. I have a habit of sneaking turkey bits out of the fridge cause I like it just plain.

Well, in Canada we have our Thanksgiving in October but I can relate to your discussion. We usually have a turkey and a ham also. I use every bit of the leftovers. Next day I boil up the carcass, and make turkey broth. I freeze some in small containers to use up every time a recipe calls for chicken broth. I also buy two prepared uncooked pie shells and make a turkey pot pie. I follow the recipe fill the pie shell and use the second shell as a lid since I am not good at making pie crust. I freeze it for another day. I slice up some of the white meat for sandwiches and cube some for a stir fry a couple of days later. The ham keeps a few days so I use it for sandwiches and also make pea or lentil soup. If any ham is left I make a frittata or what we call a logger's breakfast but I make it for supper. It is sliced potatoes (very thinly sliced) onions and garlic fried lightly, add a little stock and then sauteed until done. When potatoes are done I add the cubed ham and a few beaten eggs. When the eggs are set the supper is ready. I serve it with French bread an a green salad. There is no set recipe for this. It depends how many people are there and how much ham I have. There is usually a lot of stuffing left over. Since I cook it separately and not inside the turkey it is safe to use. But I am the only one who eats this. I add a raw egg to the stuffing, form it into patties and fry them as a side dish.

I sent my son home with some, I have some put in the freezer for when I have time to make soup and some for me to have for a dinner or lunch and I've set some aside to send home to my daughter.

Basically, I will eat it until it's finished. The girls have been eating it mostly, and I have as well for the past two days. My dog has also had a good treat as well, so all in all, we all have been satisfied.

Well, I like to dip white meat in mustard and nibble on it. With the rest of the leftover turkey, I like to make soup, make turkey and gravy sandwiches, turkey salad... I add turkey to a bunch of different recipes as well. Makes good casseroles and stuff.

The favorite here is hot turkey sandwiches...and I will eat all the veggies on the side. I usually make turkey pot pie with the left overs, I am not fond of turkey soup.
