No help for you from my kitchen. I do not like the taste of recooked meat (when the original meat was grilled or roasted--braised or stewed is just fine), so what doesn't get eaten cold is virtually unusable to me.

Our 12-year old niece is making Chinese steamed pork buns but with turkey substituted. We'll see, as I am with Jenise on reusing turkey.

I have no problem with things like turkey a la king or just turkey sandwiches. 'Bird bao' might be challenging with dry meat though.....

Many years ago I declared the Sunday after Thanksgiving as "National Turkey Soup Day". I still celebrate it, even though it never seemed to catch on. Mine, this year will be made with home made noodles.

Sliced turkey breast with the crispy skin, on Green Onion, Garlic Bread, toasted, with our home made cranberry sauce. Breast is all sliced for sandwiches. Dark meat goes into enchiladas or soup. Bits and pieces go into containers for adding to dog kibble.

Speaking of turkey day leftovers, just saw on a friend's Facebook page some pix of their leftover stuffing--pressed into a waffle iron and cooked until crisp. Now THERE's my idea of a leftover!

Mashed poatatoes are good that way too...I usually add green onion or chives. I don't press into a waffle iron, just form patties and crisp up.

That's a great idea for stuffing and a great use for a George Foreman grill or other panini-making type of utensil.

I personally like turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce. We traveled out of state for T-Day this year, so I'm going to have to cook a turkey myself if I want the leftovers. I expect to do so next weekend.

Turkey bao just might work. The traditional cha siu bao is made with Cantonese roast pork, which is a rather dry cooked meat. It's why the steamed bun stuffing always involves a thick sauce. The same technique should work with leftover turkey.

Mind if I put a fried egg on that?

left over stuffing isn't a problem. I love the stuff! I did an 11 lb bird for 12 adults + 2 toddlers. I could have done a 12-13 pounder. It was really too close. Our guests are all Pat's family. They like old fashioned "simple" food. To make things easier I purchase TJ's gravy and add frozen stock from last year and a bit of thickener. It works out well. The mashed potatoes I used the recipe using cream cheese that can be done a day or two earlier. It also went over well. For the green bean casserole I used TJs portobello mushroom soup. Never again! I will go back to the Campbell recipe but still use frozen beans rather than canned. Glad it is over!
