What can I do with leftover turkey dinner?

Every time I make a turkey dinner for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter…and oh yes, Christmas in July, I look for new inventive ways to repurpose the leftovers into another delicious meal.  Thank YOU SuperStore for giving me a taste of Hellman’s Turkey Casserole the other day when I stopped in to buy the HUGEST crab in the tank…that’s another story! I had a roast chicken I wanted to use up so I made this recipe with chicken and will absolutely make it again with turkey. Confession: I ate some of this for breakfast today! 🙂
