Leftover Turkey.... With Flair

If you are lucky enough to have some leftover turkey, then here is some suggestions for them.

Turkey is first on my shopping list, the larger the better, for at my house there is no leftovers, when my children come home for dinner, they bring their containers with them to take it all home.

Turkey freezes well, but I always pour gravy over it before freezing.

A new dish everyday from your leftover turkey or freeze and eat later
