Turkey Leftovers
I baked a turkey a week ago...or so. I tried to space it out enough so that we wouldn't be turkey'd out before Thanksgiving.

We haven't had totally elaborate leftovers, but here are a couple:

Turkey Broccoli Casserole
Broccoli - enough to cover the bottom of a 9x9 pan

Leftover Turkey - chunked into bite-size pieces
1 can cream of _______ soup. Fill in the blank with whatever you have around (celery, asparagus, broccoli, chicken, mushroom). I used reduced sodium cream of chicken.
8 oz. sour cream. I used reduced fat and it worked fine.
Salt and pepper

In a greased 9x9 pan or whatever size you want, layer broccoli (cooked) and turkey. Stir together the cream of ____ soup and sour cream. Spoon moxture over the turkey. Shred cheddar on the top. **You may also want to put some breadcrubs on it. I didn't have any around so I didn't.
Bake at 350 degrees uncovered for 30 minutes. Season to taste.

Delicious Turkey Sandwich
2 slices bread, buttered on one side (like grilled cheese)
Turkey slices
Sharp cheddar slices
Mayo and Dijon mustard
Dried cranberries

Mix the mustard, mayo and cranberries in a bowl and spread on a slice of the bread.
Heat a non-stick pan, place one slice of bread butter side down in the pan, layer in order cheese, turkey, other sliced bread with the sauce. Place a plate on the sandwich to weigh it down. Cook like grilled cheese until the cheddar is melty.

I'm still eating turkey and loving it. It's so much better than sliced deli turkey meat.
