What to do with leftover turkey

Most of us end up with leftover turkey after the Holiday meal. I am always looking for new and inviting ways to use that leftover turkey. Fortunately for all of us with that leftover holiday meat, turkey is amazingly versatile.

Turkey makes great sandwiches, pot pies, soups, casseroles, and anything thing else you can think of. I could go on and on. It is the meat that we use most because of this versatility. It's good hot, cold and room temperature.

I have put together a small selection of recipes using leftover turkey that I have tried and found to be fairly easy to make and delicious. I hope you like the as much as I do. Have fun using them.
