Created January 10, 2017
Better the second time around - these tips and recipes make great use of your turkey the second day and the third day, too. MORE+ LESS-

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.
