 Turkey a la King by Victoria Blashford-Snell and Brigitte Hafner

Hardly before the last bite of pie is gobbled and the third helping of stuffing digested, eyes turn to the vast array of leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and veggies awaiting their turn to be divvied up in doggie bags for guests, parceled into Tupperwares or ziplocked away in the freezer. While a classic turkey sandwich slathered with cold dressing, cranberry relish and mayonnaise can certainly hit the spot, the recipes below provide a wide range of ideas inventive enough to become the basis of a menu all their own.
