My mom and I make soup the next day in the crock pot. Shred some of the leftover turkey, chop any remaining crudites (in my house, that means carrots, celery, bell peppers, maybe zucchini and mushrooms too), add your leftover cooked veggies (green beans, corn, baby carrots, etc.), along with the leftover gravy and a can of chicken broth. Cook on low for 6-8 hours. At serving time, microwave leftover stuffing until hot. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop a serving of stuffing and place in the bottom of the bowl. Ladle soup over the top and serve. It comes out like a big dumpling at the bottom. And even if you're like me and add chopped apple, cranberries and nuts to your stuffing, it's still delish!
You can also cook the turkey in broth until it's shreddable, drain it and use it for tamales, enchiladas, burritos or tacos.
