    Thanksgiving -What have you made/done with your leftovers ?

    I was lucky enough to get the ham bone from out family dinner- I made Ham and bean soup , perfect for a chilly day and the house smells so good

    What have you made/done with your leftovers ?

    We have so much turkey leftover from a 20 pounder that I have no idea what to do with it. I gave some to my sister to take to moms with her but still have so much left. I don't like it heated up after the first time and we are not really casserole people. So any ideas? Don't have much left of anything else. The two big bowls of cranberry salad are gone and the broccoli salad was gone that day.

    I had leftover mashed pot, stuffing, turkey and gravy. I mix turkey and stuffing together..put in a baking dish..top with the leftover mashed pot...and dot with butter. Bake for about an hour at 350. The top of the potatoes should be a little browned. I serve this with gravy and cranberry sauce. It is called Amish Wedding Pie.

    I have a big bag of turkey I took off the carcass after leaving it in the roaster in the oven for a few hours. Froze the broth for later also. I just have so much, maybe I can get my son to come and get some. I will freeze if all else fails and then probably throw it away next year when I find it!!LOL

    Yes, You can and it also makes great turkey salad...just add chopped celery and mayo. How about Turkey Tetrazini??

    I also make a turkey/barley soup. I put the carcass in a pot add water or broth.. cook till it all falls apart. strain the contents and the broth into another pot..add the leftover gravy/stuffing/carrots/onion/celery and a cup of rinsed barley. pick the meat off the bones..discard all the rest...add some additional poultry seasoniong..cook until the barley is nice and fat/tender and you're good to go. Best turkey soup ever!!!

    oh, i thought you meant leftover fabric from other projects... the Thanksgiving part meaning all the extra time I always cook the turkey carcass and pick the bones for turkey soup. I sent most of the leftovers home with DD's family. Too many leftovers in my fridge is dangerous to me as I have no self control... the 3 pieces of pie were gone the first day [sigh]. It's back to the diet today

    Turkey soup. Will also make turkey ala king. Or freeze the leftover meat, if we don't seem to be eating it fast enough.

    Turkey enchiladas - that will probably be dinner tonight. We didn't have a lot leftover this time, I got a smaller turkey deliberately!

    We love turkey a la king. I could eat dressing and gravy forever but alas its gone. I made potato salad from the mashed potatoes. Usually by the time I start to worry about left overs everyone has snacked and my fridge is empty except for the turkey and extra broth. I'll make some new dressing to go with the a la king and everyone will be happy. Also make another pumpkin pie.

    Turkey Tetrazini is the family favorite. My mom always told me to follow a recipe exactly the first time you make it. When I was 12 Mom asked me to make Turkey Tetrazini (first time for the family) for dinner and then left me to it. The recipe literally said, get a small bowl.... get a saucepan.... get a medium bowl.... By the time I finished following the recipe I had used every pot in the kitchen. Now I make tetrazini using one pot, one saucepan and no bowls.

    The second night post Thanksgiving is Turkey Barley soup.
