Can your holiday turkey "still be found haunting the kitchen" in the words of Elvis Costello in "The Saint Stevens Day Murders"? Here are a few simple things you can do with your holiday leftovers.

Turkey: If you've got leftover turkey and are tired of turkey sandwiches for lunch, consider tossing the meat in one of our barbecue sauces to make barbecue turkey sandwiches. If you have a slow cooker, give your barbecued turkey a couple hours in the cooker on low to really infuse it with that barbecue flavor. Otherwise, just toss and reheat in the microwave. These are a great reuse because all you need are buns and barbecue sauces and you've got a totally new flavor.

Pumpkin pie filling: If your pumpkin pie filling didn't fit quite right in the crust, consider using the extra filling to make French toast. If your filling is too thick, whisk in some milk to thin it out, dip, and pan cook as you would any other French toast.

Cranberries: Cranberries, like any fruit, go great over vanilla ice cream as a topping. If you don't like your ice cream toppings chunky, use a strainer to separate the liquid from the berries. Use the berries for ice cream, and use the cranberries in place of the blueberries in your favorite blueberry muffin recipe.
