    For me, it's the turkey sandwich. In fact, I like the sandwich better than the original meal. The idea is to recreate the meal in a sandwich.

    My typical approach is bread, mayo, turkey, cranberry sauce (the homemade kind, not that nasty canned HFC jello), lettuce, bread stuffing and a small smear of leftover giblet gravy. This year, we had some bread that was "country French", but just about any sturdy sandwich bread will do.

    Almost as fine as leftover pecan pie. Here's a sample before the stuffing and gravy.

    I typically get tired of turkey after the first round of leftovers, but I'm in for my garlic, bacon & brie mashed potatoes with giblet gravy any night of the week.

    If you're talking Thanksgiving, my Mom called it "Shipwreck". This is the recipe:

    In a large, greased casserole bowl, layer the following ingredients:

    Leftover gravey (on the bottom) then,
    Leftover filling
    Leftover mashed potatoes
    Leftover turkey
    Leftover peas, corn, or Lima beans

    Be generous with the gravey. Cut the turkey into small pieces. Bake at 325 for 1-2 hours, or until brown and bubbly.

    This recipe is a last ditch effort to use up everything, after turkey sandwiches just ain't cuttin' it anymore.

    Edit: This is a secret recipe, so you guys should feel honored that I am divulging it here today.:D

    Don't know why but I love the bread stuffing I make every year, covered in giblet gravy. Don't really care much for the turkey, but I've had a big plate or two of stuffing every day. Probably a good thing Thanksgiving is only once a year.

    Maybe I like it just because it takes me quite awhile to make. I tear my own bread & go from there.

    May have another plate tonight...

    Yep, not a big fan of the traditional Holliday meal. I fix it most years, it is what everyone wants. So for the leftovers, I go straight to the stuffing (cornbread dressing )and gravy.

    Potato Pie. Fried leftover mashed pertaters patties, with cheese and bacon rolled in. Cooked in little butter and recommended by the American Hard Association.

    Curry is better the next day, the favours have melded.

    And I used to love leftover pizza for breakfast, with beer. Amirite?!

    Right as rain. Back in the day we used to say
    "Cold Pizza and Warm Beer, Breakfast of Champions".
    Haven't said that in a few years. Thanks for the memories.

    My favorite leftover... the day after... scratch made waffles, buttered, warmed pieces of turkey, then smothered in leftover turkey gravy.

    Yeah, hot turkey sandwich: heat a mess of the gravy in a skillet, add the leftover sliced turkey. Meanwhile, toast some wheat bread, while heating the leftover stuffing in the microwave. Then place toast on plate, top with heated stuffing, then turkey meat, top with gravy. For breakfast, use extra mashed potatoes to make some potato pancakes.
