Turkey Day and leftovers! Yum!

Everyone knows that Thanksgiving means leftovers! What is your favorite leftover (or created from leftovers) post-Turkey Day dish?
  • Terry Ambrose:

    There are so many great things to make with leftovers, but turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce and mashed potato pancakes are two of my favs. I wouldn’t have them at the same time, of course, but I do love them both. In years past, Kathy’s always made her own cranberry sauce. It puts the store-bought stuff to shame. It’s one reason why we have cranberry sauce around for the entire season. And potatoes? We always cook up way more than we need just so there are plenty of leftovers.

  • Nancy J. Cohen:

    I make turkey tetrazzini and it lasts for several days.

  • Debra H. Goldstein:

    I’m not a fan of turkey, but I love cranberry sauce, corn pudding, and stuffing. I could make a meal of those three things and be very happy.

  • Cheryl Hollon:

    I adore turkey sandwiches made from sliced white meat, a generous slathering of Duke’s Mayonnaise along with a thick layer of leftover dressing on toasted sourdough. Heaven!

  • Diane A.S. Stuckart:

    Thanksgiving isn’t Thanksgiving if there isn’t leftover dressing, mashed potatoes, and gravy to chow down on for a few days after (turkey is a bonus but not required). My favorite “made” leftover creation is turkey tortilla soup. Simple and dee-lish! 

  • Maggie Toussaint:

    I make a killer gluten-free, dairy-free, tomato-free spinach lasagna! I can eat the leftovers hot or cold. It is soooo good! I also love the option of sneaking a bit off my strict diet into the realm of “tasting” a few past-life favs that are currently on my no-fly-zone.

    Turkey dressing with gravy! Unfortunately, since it’s everyone’s favorite, there’s never any left over the next day.

Sounds like some pretty good leftovers! The real question is, what's the recipe for that turkey tortilla a soup? Who else wants in on that and what's your fav for Thanksgiving leftovers?
