Second-day turkey

Holiday extras make entrées in 30 minutes or less
CHRISTINE WEBER HALE

Interest in leftover Thanksgiving turkey tends to fade proportionally to the number of days that have passed since the holiday. But this versatile, lean meat will keep its quality for four to five days if refrigerated and well covered, so you can afford to take a short break before coming back to it. Then, any of the following dishes, some of which incorporate other likely Thanksgiving extras, will make a welcome meal. On the other hand, why not freeze the turkey bonus in small, easy-to-thaw packets to have available when a quick meal is in order?
