    I had leftovers last year however and I made turkey & rice soup, turkey turnovers (a variation of the pot pie theme), turkey sandwiches with homemade crusty bread. :lips:

    I had smoked turkey leftovers (tastes like ham) so I made the ultimate comfort food: mac & cheese! Not bad! I threw in what was left of the gravy for added flavour...

    Turkey With Mint And Hot Chiles

    8-10 ounces cooked light and dark turkey meat, roughly cut into 1/2 inch chunks
    2 tablespoons thinly sliced shallots, separated into rings
    1/2 cup loosely packed coarsely torn coriander leaves
    1/2 cup loosely packed coarsely chopped mint leaves
    1 teaspoon minced bird chile, or more to taste
    Freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
    2 tablespoons Thai fish sauce, or to taste
    3 tablespoons lime juice
    1 tablespoon roasted rice powder or aromatic roasted rice powder, or more to taste


    Combine the meat and shallots in a shallow bowl. Add the coriander and mint leaves and mix well.

    In a small bowl, combine all the remaining ingredients except for the rice powder and stir to mix well/ Pour over the salad and toss to distribute the dressing thoroughly. Just before serving, sprinkle on the rice powder, if using.

    Whenever I have leftover turkey, I just dice it up, and cook it with some onions and olive oil until the onions are lightly softened. I add previously boiled potatoes, (preferably Yukon gold) and I cook until crispy on high heat while I'm also cooking some diced chorizo sausage as well. Season with salt and ground black pepper, and add chorizo to the potatoes, onions, and turkey. Add garlic and saute for about 40 seconds on high heat until fragrant. Place on a large platter, top with fried eggs, and top with a little bit of chopped parsley or cilantro if desired. Delicious.
