The Bonus of a Holiday Meal

I've never been a fan of the idea of taking the carcass of a leftover turkey and making soup.  The times I've tried to do this I've ended up with a watery stock that's as much effort to make as starting from scratch but with half the flavor.

Instead I prefer to do three things with Thanksgiving leftovers:

  1. Send doggy bags home with dinner guests (but save any leftover pie for your breakfast).
  2. Pack into serving portions and take them to work for lunch.
  3. Re-purpose the leftovers into new dishes that keep the ingredients appealing.


The easiest leftover to put into a new dish is leftover turkey.  While it's not my favorite and I easily get tired of eating it, turkey's bland flavor makes it an ideal partner to other foods that have more personality.  Here are some suggestions for getting more meals out of holiday leftovers -- both turkey and vegetables.
