Alfredo with turkey, a la king , caccattorre, turkey salad, croquettes, tettrazzinni, merengo, and on and on, use your imagination.
Beyond the traditional ideas above, you can take them mexican in interesting ways with a pipian sauce and I also make tamales and freeze them for later eating.
No one on my my list of Turkey leftovers is Turkey Soup
hash, pot pies, po boys, turkey and dumplings
Pot pies are good for leftovers too as you can use up gravy too. I usually do individual ramekin pot pies. This way I can freeze them and send them with my wife for lunches when she wants one.
Monte Cristo sandwiches
Beside sandwiches, I'd go for "retro" croquettes... like diner food. Don't have a recipe, but if I had leftovers, would be looking for one.

With a few exceptions, making croquettes is more of a very easily adaptable sequence of techniques than hundreds of distinct recipes, each based on a different "filling." If you (and/or other CT readers) are interested, I'll write a fairly comprehensive (and hopefully comprehensible) post.
Go for it!
I was only feeding myself this year so I made a small 11 pound bird. I like the dark meat so that was mostly eaten right away. I cut the breasts off and froze them separately for slicing for sandwiches. As mentioned turkey clubs (tonights menu to use the last of the non-frozen meat), and plain ole turkey on whole wheat with mayo and salt works for me. One thing different I have done in the past is use some of it for chimichanga filling, reheat with chili powder, cumin, mexican oregano and shred.
This year the day after Thanksgiving we did King Ranch Turkey Casserole, similar to King Ranch Chicken but used Turkey. It turned out pretty good.
One of best croquettes recipes I have used was in old Joy of Cooking cookbook.Only thing I do different is The shape and I use chives & Panko crumbs.., and I fine grind some skin into mix to.
I was at the market today looking for turkey parts to cook. My wife and I had dinner at Cindy's house, her Cindy was in Salt Lake City, mine was in Phoenix.
No leftovers, I didn't even come close to getting my holiday turkey fix. The one store I checked didn't have the half turkey breast I was hoping for, ended up doing pot stickers and beef & broccoli.
I'm always interested, thanks in advance!
if you have a breast left over, cube it then rehydrate the cubes in a sieve over boiling water.Make a spicy curry base gravy and reheat the plumped up cubes in that.
nb. add lots of fresh cracked black pepper to the gravy so its good and hot, this then purges your system of all that bland food you have eaten.
nnb put some toilet rolls in the fridge and take out as required.
In a pan sautee some chopped leeks and sliced mushrooms in butter until soft. Deglaze with vermouth. Add a cup of cream and the juice of half a lemon. Lots of pepper. Throw in some chopped parsley as well and then stir in some chopped up turkey just to warm through. Serve over rice. A very quick stroganoff.
Chamenois style turkey soup.
Turkey, mushrooms and cream
