DW made big pot of Turkey "broth" from the skeleton of the Turkey we ate at my DD home yesterday. She then divides it up and freezes it. I suspect we will be eating it until the Forth of July.

She eventually will make "Pancakes" out of the turkey and stuffing scraps.

The way she uses it all up I am really glad they do not send the heads and feet with the Turkeys.

We cut back on the sides this year as son is spending a few days away from home. One of the cuts was the Waldorf Salad. So, on Monday I will chop a couple of apples and some celery and stir in some toasted walnuts and some nice grapes with some Miracle Whip and of course some diced Turkey then serve on a bed of chopped Romaine Lettuce for a tasty dinner. Very easy and way different than the hot leftover combos and casseroles or sandwich combos.

My Mom usually makes up a batch of gumbo with some of the leftover turkey....she used to throw the carcass in too, but usually skips that part these days...it was supposed to add a little extra something to the taste, but seemingly only added a little extra work to it. Throw in some sausage and/or pork scraps....basically a dish to clean out some leftovers from the frij.

Back when my Dad was alive, he used to make up a big ol' batch of chicken turkey 'n' bisquits with some of the leftovers.

And don't forget to have that bottle of Louisiana Hot Sauce and/or Tabasco on the table to 'flavor' it up a bit! AAAAiiiiiii-EEeeee!

Sliced turkey freezes well. We'll use the turkey broth for various soups (not turkey soup).

We'll have open-faced turkey sandwich tonight, plus regular turkey sandwiches for several lunches.

I going to freeze the turkey and duck carcases for later use. Sent the ham bone home with my sister who will cook a pot of beans with it. The standing rib left overs went home with Mom and Dad to deal with.
I bought a stack of those Glad containers and told the guest to take what they wanted home with them which really cut down on the left overs I had to deal with.

Start with a bit of oil and make a dish of fried rice (or other leftover starch) and leftover greens and throw in a bit of chopped turkey (or other meat).

i've always found turkey gumbo a good alternative to turkey soup.

Turkey a la king is good, but you usually make a turkey pot pie. It might not be different enough from what you usually do to qualify as "something new".

On the stove as I post - the carcass is in - and I have a bottle of(LSU) Tiger Sauce 3/4 left. Will have it the second day - to allow everything to come together.

Made a salad tonight with breast meat,carrots,romaine and Gruyere/swiss combo. The dressing was a nice Dijon vinaigrette with some chipolte peppers. The only thing left is the carcass for soup!
