    Ham salad with the leftover ham; turkey sandwiches and turkey salad with the leftover turkey..also turkey and gravy on toast is a favorite lunchtime meal after T day for us too. Some people make potato pancakes with the leftover mashed potatoes, never done that but sounds good! You will find plenty of things to do with all that food!! [​IMG]

    My crew loves my TDG (turkey,dressing, gravy) subs. I take the cold dressing, slice it and fry it in a little butter to kinda crisp it up. Layer it on buttered and toasted sub rolls, then add some warm sliced turkey and top it off with some warm gravy. They are Awesome! Good with a little cranberry sauce on the side. DD like her cranberry sauce on her sub. It's the whole Thankgiving meal in a sandwich. Add a slice of leftover pumpkin or pecan pie for dessert and it's complete, LOL. They love these so much, they want them for supper tonight!

    I save the turkey carcass to make turkey soup.

    Turkey pot pies using the leftover turkey and the gravy.

    Ham, cabbage and new potatoes with leftover ham.

    BBQ turkey sandwiches - just add some of your favorite BBQ sauce and heat, add to buttered, toasted buns.

    Any leftover vegetables like butterbeans, field peas, green beans, corn, etc., put in pot, add a couple of cans of diced tomatoes, some ham, chicken stock and make vegetable soup.

    Would help if we maybe knew what leftovers you have.

    Turkey Pot Pies is what I am making today. I put in turkey, mashed potatoes, all the left over veggies and gravy. My family loves them. They are also good to make and freeze.

    I gave the turkey carcass to the chickens to pick at. There was hardly any ham left but enough for me to bring home and have with scrambled eggs for breakfast. I will eat the cranberry sauce and the pumpkin cake. The kids are picky.
