Turkey Turkey Turkey

Do you make a turkey any other time of year besides Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas?

What do you make with the leftovers?

  • yes i do. i shred or chop the leftover meat and put it in a ziploc bag in the freezer for future meals, and i use it instead of chicken - sandwiches, casseroles, soup, etc.

  • Once in a blue moon I may make a turkey breast (whole turkeys are a little much for 3 ppl unless I can find a very small one). Even with the turkey breast I end up making soup and sandwiches with the leftover meat.

    I guess unless you count when we use ground turkey or smoke turkey legs because we do that occasionally throughout the year.

    This one uses left over veggies (you can add turkey too) and a chutney made from leftover cranberry sauce-- something i bet your family has never done with thanksgiving left overs before

  • Turkey noodle soup or turkey pot pie. I personally love an open faced turkey sandwich with gravy on top. I am making my self hungry.

  • I enjoy turkey, but I don't enjoy the hard work in roasting a whole turkey so when I am in the mood for turkey I will buy a turkey breast and roast that. Much easier. As for leftovers, there's never a problem because we make Turkey sandwiches, I use it in soup (substitute it for chicken), pot pie, or anything else where you would normally use chicken.
