Because we all need to eat sometime or another. Chocolate cake especially welcome.

I didn't have turkey, but venison, still leftovers though! I think my ideas would work just as well with turkey.

Last night I made a sauce of sauteed onions and garlic, dash of thyme, splash of white wine and add strips of meat, served with gnocchi.

I love to make my own corn tortilas (need to eat glutenfree) and leftovers are ideal in tortillas, with a bit of tomato salsa, bell peppers, and spring onions. Or Vietnamese rice paper rolls! Ideal for combining the meat with lots of veggies. This recipe sounds nice:

Taste.com.au has lots of fab recipes, btw!

No turkey here but in the past I've used up turkey leftovers for those who are meat eaters in lots of different ways.

One is a with fried onions, celery, sweetcorn and peas with some mixed herbs and olive oil in a big frying pan.

Then boil a pan of pasta with a couple of cloves of garlic in the water.

Once ready and drained top with the fried veggies and bits of turkey.

Serve with some fresh pasley if you like or a sprinkle of whatever grated cheese you might have.

We have leftover Italian beef and my slow cooker boiled ham in apple juice leftover.

Hubbie just had a few bits with a bubble and squeak he made from leftover brussels, potatoes with added mixed herbs, sweetcorn and peas. He had some chilli jam he made with it and some of my homemade pickled onions.

I didn't have the meat being the veggie I had an alternative smokie veggie sausage. :love1: :thumbup:

My Turkey leftovers get made into pies and put back into the freezer. This year I've made turkey and ham with the leftover gravy and turkey and homemade cranberry sauce with leftover gravy. I make the pastry lids when I take them out. They are delicious and a welcome change come February/March time.

Another of my use it up recipes is Turkey, ham and leek pie

There's also Turkey and sweetcorn Quiche I've made in the past and Turkey and mushroom curry.

Hubbie appears to like them as have guests when we've cooked Turkey. I do the same with Chicken.
