Mmmmmm! How about turkey gumbo? Sub rice flour for the AP flour. That would be delicious! I was going to suggest Enchiladas with green sauce, if you know a good chesse sub, that would be great. I look forward to the turkey just for the enchiladas! :D

This can be served in a crock-pot so it will be hot when served.

2 cans of sliced potatoes, drained and fried until browned in butter

Then dump a bag of plain sauerkraut over them (along with the juice) (use canned if you would rather)

Add as much chopped leftover turkey as you'd like

Heat and serve.

May add more butter when serving if desired.

I've wondered if I could do this with leftover mashed potatoes. I think it would work just fine if the sauerkraut was drained very well.

My other favorite leftover turkey dish is Hot Brown Sandwiches but they might be hard to transport.

Hot Brown Sandwiches


3 ounces turkey breast, roasted, sliced

1 slice toasted gluten free white bread

2 slices tomato

2 slices bacon, cooked and drained


2 ounces butter

2 tablespoons cornstarch

3/4 cup cream

1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup Swiss cheese, grated (I use cheddar since I'm not fond of Swiss)

salt and white pepper to taste


Heat butter. Whisk milk and cornstarch together, then add cream. Dump into butter and stir until thicken (about 5 minutes). Stir in cheese until melted. Season. Simmer for 30 minutes.

Sauce should be very thick (if not thick enough you can add another tablespoon of corn starch-mix with a few tablespoon cold milk before adding to hot sauce).

Quarter toast and place in an oven safe dish.

Top with turkey and tomatoes. Cover well with sauce. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Garnish with bacon,
