10 New Ways to Use Leftover Turkey

This year, I’m not looking up “ways to use Thanksgiving turkey leftovers” anymore because, let’s be honest, the loaded turkey sandwich, turkey tacos, and turkey casserole are so boring to think about.

So here, I’m presenting you 10 new ways to use leftover turkey that don’t suck, because they are some of my favorite rotisserie chicken recipes! Does anyone else have a favorite Thanksgiving leftover hack?
