    I tell you what NOT to do, dendan. Don't be sucked-in by those would-be brownie recipes that claim to be a good use of leftover mashed potatoes. Unless you enjoy eating "cocoa-potatoes," stay way. WAY away !!

    Making a cream-based soup of equal parts leftover turkey and lutefisk...a Fisk-Bisque, if you will.


    (Oh, come-on. Someone had to keep the lutefisk thread alive.)

    Sliced turkey sandwiches on white bread with mayonnaise, stuffing and sliced (jelled) cranberry sauce.

    Hot open-faced turkey sandwiches with leftover mashed potatoes (or make them fresh) with gravy.

    Turkey soup using the carcass and bits of meat.

    More sliced turkey sandwiches on white with stuffing and cranberry sauce.

    More hot open-faced turkey sandwiches.

    Be sure to roast two turkeys if you want to have plenty of leftovers.

    Two of our favorite dishes using left-over turkey (especially the small pieces) are Corn and Turkey Chowder and Turkey Pie. My daughter in law has made me promise that I will make at least three times the amount of stuffing that I think I should make.......she loves the stuff!

    Open-faced turkey sandwiches are my favorite. when the gravy and potatoes and stuffing are gone, I mix the turkey with some BBQ sauce and make sandwiches with that. They work well on hamburger buns------sort of a pulled-turkey sammich!

    Turkey Hash - fry some potatoes, onions, bell peppers and then add the chopped turkey with a little Kitchen Bouquet browning sauce.


    I always claim the turkey frame and make a huge pot of turkey vegetable soup.

    Seafarer, I agree with all your choices especially your statement about the tetrazini!!. Every year my sister puts the leftovers of her very dry Thanksgiving turkey (guess why there are leftovers) in the freezer, only to pull them out for her Christmas dinner of tetrazini (double dry). There is not enough liquid in the country to save this meal!! Being able to beg off the pastas because of my diabetes is one of the best things to happen to me!! I now go to her house & eat a big salad ( no one else in her family really eats salads) & only a spoon full of the tetrazini.

    If Lincoln Logs are anything like the Kitty Litter Cake, you don't want to know!

    I've written about this before on a sandwich thread...I love leftover turkey, stuffing/dressing, cranberry relish, and gravy on a hoagie roll or a crusty loaf sliced in half.
    I usually can't wait to make that sandwich, but this year I'm on a low carb diet that doesn't allow me to have those kinds of rolls.

    Turkey enchiladas! Not traditional, but delicious! I use flour tortillas, jack cheese, green onions (no more), and a sauce made of canned red enchilada sauce (large can), chicken broth (1 cup), tomato sauce (small can) and Gebhardts chili powder (1 Tbsp). Good stuff!

    Sorry, I was turning yelling, screaming customers into purring pussycats.

    Lincoln Logs are log-shaped turkey croquettes that were my great-aunt Flora's specialty. They also contain chopped toasted walnuts. Sometimes she made them with chicken but they always taste best with turkey.

    You have succeeded in making screaming Roadfooders into happy eaters. Thanks.

    Here is Aunt Flora's recipe, if anyone would like to try them:

    LINCOLN LOGS

    1 1/ 2 cups cooked chicken or turkey, finely diced
    1 cup dry bread crumbs, divided
    1 cup walnuts, finely chopped and lightly toasted
    1/ 4 cup celery, finely chopped
    1/ 4 cup onion, finely chopped
    1 Tbs. finely minced fresh parsley
    1/ 4 – 1/ 2 tsp.salt
    dash of pepper
    1/ 4 tsp. paprika
    1 cup white sauce (recipe below)
    Cooking oil

    Mix chicken or turkey, 1/3 cup bread crumbs, walnuts, celery, onion, salt, pepper, and paprika. Moisten with 1/3 cup of sauce. Form mixture into 12 logs, each 3 inches long. Roll in remaining bread crumbs and fry in oil. Drain and serve with remaining sauce or leftover gravy. Notes: If you have trouble shaping the logs, chill mixture first. White sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator, as can the entire logs before frying, storing covered. Sauteed mushrooms can be added to the sauce to be served with the logs. Fresh or dried herbs can also be added in place of some of the parsley; tarragon is especially good.

    White sauce:
    1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
    2 Tbsp. flour
    1/ 4 tsp. salt
    dash pepper
    dash paprika
    1/ 2 cup chicken broth
    1/ 2 cup half-and-half

    In medium saucepan, over low heat, melt butter; stir in flour and seasonings until smooth. Gradually stir in broth and half-and-half ; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth. Makes 1 cup

    I've done this, only rolled up in a flour tortilla instead of on bread. Sort of a Thankgiving burrito.

    Hot turkey sandwiches are the mainstay around my house. That, and soup made with the carcass.

    We cook our turkey in a Nesco roaster every year to save space in the oven. Dryness is definitely NOT an issue! ocdreamer, my heart goes out to you.

    I had something like this once at a Janis Ian concert, and it wasn't cream based.


    Ha!

    "Wrong" just about sums it up, E.S. I only tried it once and while it, indeed, got rid of the leftover spuds, it only made me crave REAL brownies that much more. Live and learn. Happy TG!
