Nothing against turkey tetrazzini, but c’mon that’s a bit boring isn’t it? And after yesterday’s binge, don’t you want something a little less food coma inducing? Here’s a few ideas for giving your leftover turkey a little more pizzazz:

  • These turkey empanadas use up more than leftover turkey. You’ll use up some leftover mashed potatoes, dressing and cranberry sauce, too!
  • Martha Stewart knows how to elevate a turkey sandwich into something interesting. Here’s her Vietnamese-inspired take: turkey banh mi.
  • I’m sure my memory is flawed, but this Leftover Thanksgiving Panini recipe reminds me of “Friends” episode, “The One with Ross’s Sandwich“. Hey, sometimes a sandwich is worth fighting for.
  • And, just in case you are curious what turkey tetrazzini is, here’s a turkey tetrazzini recipe for you.

How about you? What’s your favorite way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers?
