Thanksgiving Turkey Leftovers

--Tailgatin' and how to make mofos start playa hatin' (Recipes)

Hello all, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and well while enjoying it. Now it's time for the shopping season so I know many family folk out there are going to be busy this Christmas season. So I have one more thing for y'all to be thankful for. The perfect recipes (that arent soups or gumbos) for your leftover turkey from Thanksgiving. The first one is the obvious one to many and in my opinion the best way to enjoy the leftovers and that's as a sandwich. With there being so many ways to make a turkey sandwich the toppings options on top of the turkey are endless. My favorite way to eat them is the simple simplicity of the slider.

Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Sliders


- Whatever you have as far as leftovers incl. Turkey
- Mini Rolls such as Hawaiian or potato


1) Build your sandwich your way

I like to use a couple slices of turkey breast with some stuffing* on top of that. Then on go some mashed potatoes topped with gravy then some bacon garlic brussel spouts followed by cranberry sauce. All of this is served warm on the sandwich although its good too if the cranberries are cold.

Note* For these to be real turkey sliders you have to have made White Castle stuffing for Bird Day. Although your family favorite stuffing will work just fine.

Mom's Turkey Divan

No my mom didn't create this dish. I imagine that at some point she saw a recipe for it and said "that look's easy" and made it one night back in my youth. You cant blame her for that because it was probably at a time she was busy as could be with four kids and the Christmas season here before Thanksgiving even leaves. This is childhood comfort food for me but if you you dont have any major beefs with any of the main ingredients you should like this almost effortless hearty dish. It's great for those of us in the cold weather states.


- Leftover Turkey (about a layer of a casserole dishes worth)
- 1 bag of Pepperidge Farm Herb Seasoned Stuffing
- 2 cups cooked broccoli cuts
- 1/2 cup cooked, chopped celery
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 can or cans worth of cream of...soup (your choice)
- 1/2 cup milk


1) Layer baking dish with stuffing and then add the milk and celery. Add the turkey and then broccoli followed by the cheese. Pour the can of soup over all that and bake at 350 until done (about 30-40 minutes).
