    Amazing! Who would want to waste leftover turkey after seeing this list. Thanks for sharing. I would love to try the salad recipe, any recipe with walnut is my favorite.

    This is such an amazing and exhaustive list, I’m sad I didn’t host this year. I love that you included classics, as well as a few non-traditional offerings like smoked buffalo turkey dip and curried salad. Plus, I love anything with cranberry!
    Great list. Now I’m off to buy turkeys since I don’t have leftovers.

    Turkey pizza! I think this is a great idea for a leftover. So often, I think of another dinner item. This would be a fun way to have turkey!
