Turkey Leftover Ideas

We always enjoy a traditional turkey for Thanksgiving, but we get tired of it before we eat it all. Do you have any ideas?

Turkey can be used in many ways on your menu. Substitute turkey in your favorite recipes that call for chicken. Try some different ideas, such as white chili (see recipe for this month), casseroles, burritos and enchiladas.

You can freeze turkey in meal-sized amounts in freezer containers or bags; use within six months for best quality. Visit and click on "recipes" and "main dishes." Or, enter "turkey recipe" or "chicken recipe" in the search box for lots of ideas.
