Leftover Turkey Recipe Ideas

I wanted to share one more idea for using your leftover Turkey.  Because my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe is so delicious, I used it; I used my Chicken Noodle Soup recipe to make this soup but substituted the chicken and noodles for leftover turkey and wild rice.  It was a tasty and delicious way to use up the last of my turkey.  I also made Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese Sandwiches go with it.  Both of them were incredible!!   I do not say this often, but I love these leftovers.
