What to Do with Holiday Leftovers

The Bird

There's an endless variety of things to do with leftover turkey, sandwiches being the most obvious. The meat can be used in soups, salads, wraps, quesadillas, casseroles, and pasta dishes. You can substitute it for chicken in any recipe that calls for cubed or shredded chicken. You can also make soup stock using the turkey carcass. These recipes will use up that bird in a hurry:

Don't forget the old standby, Shepherd's Pie, which can use up turkey, vegetables, and mashed potatoes in one fell swoop. Combine leftover vegetables with leftover cubed turkey and gravy, and pour into a casserole dish. Spread mashed potatoes over the top of the mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 350-degree oven, until potatoes are lightly browned.
