Top Ten Tips for Using Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

Better the second time around - these tips and recipes make great use of your turkey the second day and the third day, too.

1. Sprinkle on fresh herbs. Sprinkle the tops of casseroles, like the Turkey Tetrazzini, with 1 tablespoon fresh parsely or other herb, such as sage.


2. Use Bisquick® mix as a time-saver. An easy biscuit topping made with Bisquick® mix tops family-friendly pot pies, like the Turkey-Biscuit Pot Pie.


3. Layer the flavors. An easy way to layer flavors is to use poultry seasoning, which is a blend of sage, thyme, marjoram, rosemary and nutmeg. It really brings out the flavor in our Homemade Turkey Soup.


4. Add a garnish or two for extra flavor. For an extra special touch, sprinkle a salad, like Hot Turkey Salad with Rosemary Biscuits, with toasted almonds and dried cranberries.


5. Get time-savers. Use Suddenly Salad to make this Turkey Cranberry-Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad


6. Spice up the ordinary. Add spices and herbs to mustard and mayonnaise, like the garlic-basil mayonnaise in the Roasted Turkey Sandwich.


7. Go to your pantry. Any type of pasta would work in casseroles like the Tomato-Basil Turkey Casserole. Use whatever you have on hand!


8. Try a new twist on traditional. Instead of ordering a pizza, use up your leftover turkey! Try a our Turkey Dinner Pizza.


9. Skip the bread. For sandwiches like the Turkey Salad Sandwiches, skip bread and serve on a lettuce-lined plate with cut-up veggies or fruit.


10. Substitute ingredients. If you don't have cream of mushroom soup available for your favorite casseroles, like our Turkey-Wild Rice Casserole, you can use cream of chicken or cream of celery.
