So now that the big day is over what are you doing with your left overs. On my list is turkey fajitas and turkey noodle soup. With the mashed potatoes this is what I am think about trying today.
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon chopped green onion
2 egg yolks, beaten
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4 cups mashed potatoes
1 egg, beaten
Sifted dried bread crumbs
Peanut oil, enough to fill pan 1/2-inch
Add milk, salt, pepper, chopped onion, beaten egg yolks and flour to mashed potatoes. Chill and then shape using an ice cream scoop. Dip in the beaten egg, then roll through bread crumbs. Fry each croquette in shallow oil until brown on all sides

We didn’t have leftovers since we went out to eat this yr. But one yummy recipe that I have made in the past is turkey sandwiches:
Heat up turkey slices and dressing. Layer those on a slice of bread. Top with cranberry sauce and the other slice of bread to complete the sandwich.
Also, you can use leftover turkey in any dish that calls for chicken and you won’t even notice a taste difference.

Ooo, I may have to try those croquettes!
We’re boring with our leftovers. We normally just have hot or cold turkey sandwiches and then heat up the other leftovers to have with other meals. We’ve never come home from Thanksgiving dinner with enough leftovers to really get into funky recipes but I think I’m going to make a turkey next weekend so that we can have the leftovers (and have a real turkey, not one of those free-range organic ones my Mother-In-Law always gets).

I found a recipe for turkey pot pie on Allrecipe.com. I’m going to try it soon.
