From a savory sandwich and hearty salads to easy turnovers and a simple casserole, there are plenty of delicious ways to finish off turkey leftovers. You can even keep the flavors of the holidays going with Bobby Flay’s recipe for moist and delicious “stuffing” crusted turkey cutlets. He uses leftover poultry seasoning for flavor and Hellmann’s® Mayonnaise to keep them tender and juicy.
