As we all are looking for ways to stretch our food dollar, turkey is a wise choice. Whether or not you plan to cook one for the holidays, buy one when you find them at a good sale price. You can always freeze it for later. You can make a lot of meals from one turkey! And here are some recipes to help you use up that economical turkey meat.


2 cups chopped cooked turkey

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup salted peanuts, chopped

1/2 cup chopped celery

1/4 cup chopped onion


1/4 tsp curry powder

16 slices white bread

1 pkg (12-oz) American singles pasteurized process cheese food

Combine turkey, raisins, peanuts, celery, onion, and enough mayonnaise to moisten. Add curry powder; mix well. For each sandwich, cover a slice of bread with cheese slice. Top with turkey salad, second slice of cheese and second slice of bread.


1 cup cooked, chopped turkey

2 tbsp chopped celery

2 tbsp chopped onion

1/4 cup margarine

2 cups flour

1/2 tsp salt

4 tsp baking powder

2 eggs, beaten

1 cup milk

Brown celery and onion in margarine. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Combine eggs, milk, and turkey with celery mixture. Add to dry ingredients. Fill greased muffin tins two-thirds full. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until brown. Serve with turkey gravy, if desired.


I found this recipe in an old 1975 magazine but just because it's old doesn't mean it isn't good!

4 tbsp flour

2 cups milk

4 tbsp butter

Melt the butter in a medium hot skillet. Add the flour and milk, cook until smooth.

2 cups diced leftover turkey

3 bouillon cubes

1 can fried Chinese noodles

1 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds

Blend the above ingredients together with the butter mixture. Bake in a greased ring pan or ovenproof mold at 350 degrees for 60 minutes or until done. Remove from pan and fill center with cooked vegetables.
