  1. 1. A carb lover’s dream, served warm with gravy. Add a layer of mashed potatoes over the stuffing.
  2. 2. Mix mayo, celery, onion, curry powder, cubed turkey and serve on bread with lettuce. A lighter version substitutes yogurt for the mayo. For a sweet edge, add raisins and apples.
  3. 3. Spread bread with leftover cranberry sauce, add room-temperature or slightly warm brie and sliced turkey.
  4. 4. Layer turkey slices with sharp cheddar and run under the broiler. Good with mustard or apple slices, but not both.
  5. 5. Mix cranberry sauce with mustard for a sweet-and-sour spread. Try it on a turkey club with bacon, lettuce and turkey.
  6. 6. Make a spicy guacamole and spread on bread or tortillas, adding turkey, red onion and lettuce.
  7. 7. Turkey, kraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing on toasted rye.
  8. 8. Spread some tapenade on crusty bread with turkey and provolone. Throw in some salami and ham for good measure.
  9. 9. Turkey, baby spinach leaves and marinated artichoke hearts with Swiss cheese, grilled or cooked in a panini press.
  10. 10. Take some produce-section coleslaw mix and put in vinegar (especially rice wine vinegar), salt and sugar. Combine Asian chili sauce, mayo and spread on a baguette; add slaw, turkey and pickled jalapenos.
