A great way to use up that last bit of leftover turkey and leftover mashed potatoes.
Combine potatoes, turkey, and onions. Stir in egg, mayo, mustard, salt, Worcestershire, and pepper to taste. Shape into four 1/2 inch thick patties. In nonstick skillet melt butter over med. heat. Cook patties for about 10 mins. or until browned, turning carefully with spatula half-way through.

I do this every year with the Thanksgiving leftovers. These freeze well and are a big hit.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9-inch round baking dish...

Prepare cream of mushroom soup as directed. Prepare spaghetti as directed then drain. Combine spaghetti, soup and remaining ingredients. Stir until cheese melts. Serve and enjoy!

I haven't had this in a long time, but I look forward to it as much as I do the Thanksgiving dinner.
We have a dish in our house known as Musgo "everything in the fridge must go". At Thanksgiving time, Musgo is a Thanksgiving casserole.
Take a normal size casserole dish and layer the bottom with turkey meat. One layer. Pour gravy in with the turkey till the turkey has a nice covering (but don't drown the bird).
Add left over vegetables as another light layer (the vegetables can be mixed up). Cover with mashed potatoes (about a half inch layer or less). Cover the potatoes with a layer of stuffing.
Bake the dish at 350 F for about a half an hour. It could take longer if your layers are thick or maybe even less time it your layers are marginal.
Take out and serve hot. Thanksgiving all over again. Serve it with a side of left over cranberry and rolls :)

Spray a deep-dish pie plate with Pam. Line it with a layer of stuffing, shaping it like a thick pie crust. Chop turkey in bite-size pieces, enough to fill the stuffing crust. Spoon some well drained corn over the turkey, then add enough melted gravy to cover the turkey well, and stir it around a little. Last, take your leftover mashed potatoes and make your top crust with these. It may be easiest to warm them slightly to do this. Mound them up a bit and brush with a little melted butter, if you like.
Cover the completed pie with foil to keep the potatoes from getting too brown. Bake the pie in a 350 degree F oven for about 40 minutes, taking the foil off for the last 20 minutes. Slice into wedges to serve.

If you have leftover cranberry sauce, mix it in your oatmeal for a yummy breakfast! You can add raisins too. Just put in a dollop of cranberry sauce before you cook the oatmeal and stir it together when it's done. It's colorful, healthy, delicious and a great way to use up leftover cranberry sauce. Enjoy!
Source: I made it up. I was thinking cranberry sauce might be good on my morning toast, but it is so cold this morning I wanted oatmeal instead, so there you go! :)

There's always left overs after Thanksgiving. What I just started doing is using the cranberry sauce on my bagels. Cream cheese and topped with a little cranberry sauce! Yummy, better than jam!

I decided to use up the last of a turkey that I had in the freezer by making enchiladas. I was appalled to find that the enchilada sauce was well over $2.50 a can. Instead, I bought a packet of enchilada sauce mix for 50 cents, and the required can of tomato paste which was in my cupboard cost 33 cents, bought at Big Lots. Total $ .83 for the sauce which would have cost me over $2.5 ready made.
I made a pan of turkey enchiladas, and then used up some taco meat and made a smaller pan of enchiladas in a pan lined with foil, and popped it in to the freezer. Not counting the meat I figure the total cost to be $.83 for the sauce, $1 for the tortillas and $1 for cheese to top both pans. Not too shabby!
For turkey leftovers, make a breakfast hash. Pan fry your leftover mashed potatoes in butter (or if you have whole potatoes, slice thin or dice small.) In a separate pan, saute sliced onions, peppers, mushrooms, whatever you have on hand.
Left overs from Thanksgiving? Make Thanksgiving Pizza.
Slice leftover stuffing and warm on stove or microwave. Serve fried eggs over it (or next to it) for breakfast or a quick lunch or dinner. Can also be served next to scrambled eggs. Cathy
