Nancy of Skinny Kitchen has a Turkey Barley Soup Recipe that’s a great way to recover from your super stuffed meal the night before.
An Italian in My Kitchen has this delicious Turkey Pasta Skillet that looks super simple and delicious. She also has a recipe for Mashed Potato Croquettes that I think I might try this year – IF we have any mashed potatoes left.
Anne-Marie at This Mama Cooks has a recipe for a Turkey Apricot Rice Salad that looks like it’s bursting with flavor.
This Leftover Turkey and Rice Soup from The Brooklyn Cook looks so warming – which is something we need to dive into as the weather gets cooler. Her Leftover Turkey Puff Pastry Pot Pie (say that a few times super fast!) also looks amazing.
