It is now Friday and Thanksgiving has come and gone.
What is left over from your meal and what do you plan to do with it?

Credit to ketsuko with this thread www.abovetopsecret.com... for giving me the idea for my thread.
I'd rather not hijack the above thread.


The first kick ass leftover idea came from Flyingclaydisc with this jewel.




Turkey Sammiches - Now everyone knows about turkey sammiches, but here's how to perfect one. It's about half ingredients and half technique in order to wind up with the ultimate leftover turkey sammich. First, just use normally sliced POWB (plain old white bread) (no need to get fancy here). Take a small knife of Helman's mayo and spread it thinly on the bottom slice. Pepper the mayo with cracked black pepper, then place the turkey you like (preferrably a combo of light and dark meat). Don't go too crazy, cuz there's more coming. Now warm up a small bit of stuffing in the microwave (this is important). The turkey can be cold, but the stuffing should be warm enough to be soft. Put a small EVEN layer of stuffing on top of the turkey. Sprinkle with a little salt if you like. Now (and this part is critical), spread a layer of jellied cranberry sauce on the stuffing (ON..THE..STUFFING!!) Then apply a liberal amount of Helman's mayo on the other slice of bread and add fresh cracked black pepper. If you've done it correctly you should have a manageable sized sammich. Now just slice it in half...and enjoy the best turkey sammich you've ever eaten!! (hands down!) The trick to this recipe is getting the cranberry next to the mayo; any other sequence won't be as good.


So,what kind of creative things are you doing with your leftovers??

I've always thought the ultimate use of leftovers was using the carcass to make a kick-ass soup....or at least soup stock.
We didn't have turkey this year, but if we did, that is what I would consider.

I fried up some smoked ham and mashed potatoes with eggs and biscuits. World's greatest hangover remedy.

That was followed by my 5th and 6th, half a bottle of Amarone and several glasses of Single Malt.

Pretty sure I got nekkid at some point and visited the neighbors.

I like my turkey sammiches on some type of healthy brown bread, cranberry sauce on both sides of bread, lots of turkey, lots of stuffing......

Other leftover - turkey stir fry, turkey chow mein, turkey with rice, soups....

When I do turkey, it's just two or three of us, and I usually get a 12 to 15 lb bird......lots of leftovers are a must 😋

Did you knock on Justin Bieber's door again?


ETA All I remember from my youth is bubble and squeak My parents made it regularly but I never cared for it. Then again, the vegetables my family and relatives made had already been cooked way too long the first time round, frying ain't gonna help at all anymore. I was picky and still am. It's an affliction.

I'm donating all the leftovers to fat people.

We had turkey sandwiches for lunch. I put the turkey bones and some veggies into a big soup pot to make stock. When done I will be delivering soup to the daughter at work, probably in three hours. I haven't decided whether to make turkey and rice or turkey noodle soup yet. It will definitely be packed with veggies though. I always put lots of veggies in my soups.

Leftover turkey with stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy for supper tonight and we still have equivalent to a whole pie left from the three pies and a cheesecake we had last night.

Thanksgiving without turkey? I have never experienced anything like that in all my life. Seventy nine cents a pound for turkey before thanksgiving. We had sixteen people here and the food and pie to feed everyone ran about thirty eight bucks. That does not include a few dishes people brought, that would add another ten bucks if you counted that. Everyone took back leftovers and the four that didn't make it got a meal delivered to them.

My brother had a deer run into the side of his car on the way here, it damaged two doors and a fender. His new car of course. The deer fell to the ground but got up and ran into the woods embarrassed. What a job it did to the doors and fender, the mirror also got knocked apart and had some fir on it.

My daughter brought the cheesecake. It had wild blueberries on it from the ones they froze last summer. I didn't make my usual blueberry pie, I only picked enough for three pies last summer. We made a cherry pie from the cherries off of my brothers tree though. We used the organic canned pumpkin for the other pies, it was better tasting than the conventional canned pumpkin. We did not do the pie pumpkins this last summer, we missed the sales where you get them for a quarter each which usually happens right after Halloween. It takes a lot of time to make real stuff but it is usually cheap and great tasting. It's kind of nice being retired.

I wish I had leftovers. I showed up at my friends house and got drafted into the role of fry cook, and fried fresh catfish, oysters, and shrimp. I don't think I even touched any turkey.



I just want to say flyingclaydisk deserves an award for that turkey sandwich recipe. I'm tempted to cook a whole thanksgiving meal just so I can make that sandwich.

So just a turkey sandwich thread?
Hardly something new and exciting.

Turkey Matzo Ball Soup

Can't go wrong with most of Chef John's recipes.

He has some other recipes for leftover Thanksgiving but this is the easiest with always good results.
His "Leftover Turkey Manicotti" is also good. You can change the recipe to your taste.

But it's Thanksgiving. The only time of the year that you are required to eat turkey. We actually only eat turkey on thanksgiving, then we are sick of it for six months minimum.. We do cook one occasionally on the grill or smoke it though. I would rather eat chicken myself. My daughter buys about three of them back to back when they get cheap, they have five kids. I keep telling her to toss it in the freezer, you shouldn't overeat something like that for more than three days at a time.
