Any turkey left?

Now that Thanksgiving is over for most people (not us, we still have two to go!), you might be wondering what to do with leftover turkey.  In my house, we use leftovers for a few days of easy meals.  Any leftover turkey beyond that is usually reserved for soup and casserole.  However, Martha has a few ideas that have me thinking about new ways to use any leftovers. 

These turkey croquettes are a great way to use up turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce:

Take a look at this turkey cobb salad...yum!

And this shepherd's pie has the potential to be a new family favorite:

You can view an entire gallery of leftover turkey recipes here.  Quite frankly, all these recipes makes me want to make two to eat at our Thanksgiving on Sunday, and one to have just for the leftovers.

What do you do with your leftover turkey?

I just love turkey and cranberry sauce sandwiches! Although we usually eat our leftovers as-is. Nothing like Thanksgiving dinner for days, I must say!
