What To Do With Turkey Leftovers

After 3 days of left over turkey I always ask my self "What do I do with my Turkey leftovers?" So I went looking on the Internet for some ideas and I found these easy recipes from Wiki How they list 11 but these were my favorite:

Make a Turkey Salad - Mix the left over turkey with boiled potato cubes, chopped hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, chopped celery, chopped onion, and mix. For a green salad, top a bed of lettuce or spinach with the left over turkey along with fresh cranberries, cucumber slices, cashew nuts, and a cranberry or honey mustard dressing.

Make a Turkey Omelette or frittata for a wholesome breakfast. Just put Turkey in your favorite egg omelette.

Make Turkey Tacos - Just use your leftover turkey instead of chicken or beef. I use soft tortillas. You can put your favorite cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and anything else you regularly put in your tacos. Easy and my kids loved it.

Make Turkey Sandwiches - I used the leftover gravy. My family actually grew up eating Pan Con Chumpe or turkey sandwiches for Thanksgiving. They are the best but that recipe will have be a topic for another post.

Freeze the left overs. Follow the steps on Wiki How on how How to Prevent Freezer Burn. Also be sure you eat your turkey within 6 months for best flavor.

Make a Turkey Calzone. This video shows you how make a turkey calzone. The best part about the video is his explanation on how to make the Calzone dough. Easy and tastes good. You could use the same dough for making pizza. Also if you are short on time Pillsburry pizza dough works good too.
