    I've just been doing a simple leftover bowl - stuffing and turkey heated in the microwave and then my curried cranberry sauce on top. I even made some more "stuffing" so I could keep up with the leftover turkey and cranberry sauce.
    Count your blessings!

    Us too! It' wasn't too bad finishing up the leftovers this year. Our favorite leftover recipe was turkey burritos. If you haven't tried this yet, I highly recommend it! I will warn you - 1 is plenty and 2 is more than enough for the average person. After 2 we didn't even want any leftover pie!!!!

    Turkey Burritos
    Take 1 large tortilla and slather on a layer of sweet potato pie, then spoon on the turkey (shredded or chopped) and some stuffing. Roll into burrito and place seam side down on cookie sheet. Make however many you want and bake in the oven for 20 min at 325. Dip in leftover gravy and enjoy!

    So happy to see the turkey come out of the oven, so happy to see the last of the leftovers leave. Kind of funny if you think about.

    Those turkey burritos sound good.

    So who's going to start the thread for Christmas dinner?

    Man, that TG turkey just keeps on going! I made yet another pot of soup (that brings the count to 4!) last night - this time with some of the turkey stock.

    I cooked up onions, celery and carrots with some garlic and then browned some ground turkey. I added the stock and a large can of corn and some fresh sage. It still looked like it was missing something, so I julienned some brussels sprouts and added them too. For a "non-recipe" recipe, it turned out pretty well!

    I have a bit more stock left, so I may make it to FIVE pots of soup from that turkey!

    Re: Let's Talk Turkey-Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving will be here before you know it, and I hope it isn't too early to bump this thread back up.

    I'm a big convert to brine when it comes to turkey. Since my budget calls for a cheap frozen turkey this is the best way I've found to get a great end result. I use a basic brine of salt and water and let the turkey sit in it for a couple of days. But I have had a problem with salty drippings and found a great article on Pioneer Woman about turkey brining.

    How to Control Saltiness After Brining | The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond

    She recommends:

    1. Use a fresh (i.e. non-frozen) turkey.
    2. After brining, rinse the turkey thoroughly under cold water for a few minutes.
    3. After rinsing, fill the sink with cold water and soak the turkey for fifteen minutes.
    4. While making gravy, use the lowest sodium chicken broth you can find.
    5. Boil the giblets in water until they’re cooked through, then keep the broth from the giblets and use it to thin the gravy as you cook it.

    Here is a link to her turkey brine. (much more elaborate than mine! lol)

    I forgot to add: On the Sunday before t-day I will buy extra turkey wings and necks if I can get them, then go ahead and make my stock ahead of time. That saves me a lot of stress and one less thing to cook the day of.

    Re: Let's Talk Turkey-Thanksgiving

    I agree, brining a fresh turkey is always the best - but it's hard to resist those cheap per lb. prices offered in November on the frozen ones.

    BTW, we just finished our Thanksgiving turkey from last year. Yep. Hooray for the stand-alone freezer. I'd bought a 22-lb turkey last year (hey, it was on sale!) but we only ended up eating about half of it, so I froze the leftover meat. Noticed it last week, thawed it...along with a gallon ziplock bag of dressing I'd frozen at the same time...used McCormick instant chicken gravy and made a very good casserole!

    So if you're ever in doubt, turkey and dressing WILL freeze well for about a year. We had it on October 1, a great way to kick-off my favorite fall month.
