Turkey - it's not just for Thanksgiving!

Got a buncha left over bird?? Here are a few really simple ideas..

Turkey cranberry roll-up
(You can do this as a sandwich as well as a tortilla.) Spread some cranberry sauce, put some turkey on top of it, and roll. It has all the flavor of Thanksgiving with almost none of the work.
Turkey lentil stew
Soak your lentils until they are soft. Cook them in water with some garlic, thyme, salt, and a bay leaf until the lentils have made something of a mushy mess. Add the turkey and make sure it's all heated through.
Turkey and noodles
Cook up some egg noodles. For a sauce, heat up some creamy soup (cream of mushroom, cream of celery, etc..) and add some turkey and browned onions. Put the turkey topping over the noodles and serve. Yum!

Super idea!! This would be great for my FIL as he is gluten free and uses those corn tortillas!!

We never do soup as we do the turkey on the charcoal grill-makes a great turkey but not soup! But this would be great for an oven cooked bird!!
