Of course you should use the turkey carcass to make turkey broth for future use but here are some more ideas using your own favorite year round standard recipes, simply by substituting the beef, pork, chicken and even tuna with leftover turkey :-) Grind, chop, shred or cube accordingly:
Meatloaf, casserole, stroganoff, stuffed bell peppers, meatballs, chili, burgers, tacos, lasagna, omelets, pot stickers, pizza, mac and cheese, sandwiches and don't forget pot pies, soups and salads ;-)
