We cook our turkey in a Nesco roaster every year to save space in the oven. Dryness is definitely NOT an issue! ocdreamer, my heart goes out to you. [8)]
I’ve done this, only rolled up in a flour tortilla instead of on bread. Sort of a Thankgiving burrito.
Hot turkey sandwiches are the mainstay around my house. That, and soup made with the carcass.
Rubyrose: That sounds delicious. I wish I had the time to do some of the wonderful recipes indicated by these threads.

Here is Aunt Flora’s recipe, if anyone would like to try them:
1 1/ 2 cups cooked chicken or turkey, finely diced
1 cup dry bread crumbs, divided
1 cup walnuts, finely chopped and lightly toasted
1/ 4 cup celery, finely chopped
1/ 4 cup onion, finely chopped
1 Tbs. finely minced fresh parsley
1/ 4 1/ 2 tsp.salt
dash of pepper
1/ 4 tsp. paprika
1 cup white sauce (recipe below)
Mix chicken or turkey, 1/3 cup bread crumbs, walnuts, celery, onion, salt, pepper, and paprika. Moisten with 1/3 cup of sauce. Form mixture into 12 logs, each 3 inches long. Roll in remaining bread crumbs and fry in oil. Drain and serve with remaining sauce or leftover gravy. Notes: If you have trouble shaping the logs, chill mixture first. White sauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator, as can the entire logs before frying, storing covered. Sauteed mushrooms can be added to the sauce to be served with the logs. Fresh or dried herbs can also be added in place of some of the parsley; tarragon is especially good.
1 Tbsp. butter or margarine
2 Tbsp. flour
1/ 4 tsp. salt
1/ 2 cup chicken broth
1/ 2 cup half-and-half
In medium saucepan, over low heat, melt butter; stir in flour and seasonings until smooth. Gradually stir in broth and half-and-half ; cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth. Makes 1 cup
[8D] You have succeeded in making screaming Roadfooders into happy eaters. Thanks.[:D]
Sorry, I was turning yelling, screaming customers into purring pussycats.
Lincoln Logs are log-shaped turkey croquettes that were my great-aunt Flora’s specialty. They also contain chopped toasted walnuts. Sometimes she made them with chicken but they always taste best with turkey.
Turkey enchiladas! Not traditional, but delicious! I use flour tortillas, jack cheese, green onions (no more), and a sauce made of canned red enchilada sauce (large can), chicken broth (1 cup), tomato sauce (small can) and Gebhardts chili powder (1 Tbsp). Good stuff!
I’ve written about this before on a sandwich thread…I love leftover turkey, stuffing/dressing, cranberry relish, and gravy on a hoagie roll or a crusty loaf sliced in half.
I usually can’t wait to make that sandwich, but this year I’m on a low carb diet that doesn’t allow me to have those kinds of rolls.
I think RubyRose is letting us "stew"[;)] over it and then she’l give us the zinger….[:0]
If Lincoln Logs are anything like the Kitty Litter Cake, you don’t want to know! [xx(][xx(][xx(]
Please do tell, what are Lincoln logs?
Seafarer, I agree with all your choices especially your statement about the tetrazini!!. Every year my sister puts the leftovers of her very dry Thanksgiving turkey (guess why there are leftovers) in the freezer, only to pull them out for her Christmas dinner of tetrazini (double dry). There is not enough liquid in the country to save this meal!! Being able to beg off the pastas because of my diabetes is one of the best things to happen to me!! I now go to her house & eat a big salad ( no one else in her family really eats salads) & only a spoon full of the tetrazini.[}:)][:D]
RR – Love #1, fond memories as a child of this one.
#2 – Worth a try, sounds good.
#3 – HUH[?][:D][:I]
1. Sliced turkey breast sandwiches on white bread with mayo.
2. Turkey pie with mushrooms, leeks, peas and carrots (top crust only)
3. Lincoln logs
Turkey Hash – fry some potatoes, onions, bell peppers and then add the chopped turkey with a little Kitchen Bouquet browning sauce.
I always claim the turkey frame and make a huge pot of turkey vegetable soup.
