Leftover Christmas Turkey

Christmas Turkey
 There were five of us for Christmas dinner.  Moe, Matt and I and our neighbour Clif and his son Chris.  I roasted an 18 pound turkey(pre-salted and roasted at 500°F) so there was lots leftover.   The turkey was cooked in less than 2 1/2 hours. 
While cleaning up after dinner I cut up the carcass, putting the legs, wings and back bone in the stock pot and let it simmer on low all night.  The remaining half breast went into the fridge.  I also refrigerated about 8 cups of leftover rich turkey gravy.
 My favourite way to use up leftover turkey breast is – Hot Turkey Sandwiches

Homemade fries and canned peas. What I call diner food.  Normally I wouldn’t serve leftover stuffing/dressing with a hot sandwich but my stuffing was so good (if I do say so myself)
 The dressing was a combination bread/corn bread stuffing. 
The fries were made from Russet potatoes and were double fried.

    I had to laugh at this one Ann. I thought the same thing about my dressing! I even like it cold and ate a bunch before it was baked. There isn't much left, but I will finish it off with our hot turkey sandwiches at lunch today.

    My Christmas ham was wonderful, but I would give an arm and a leg for one of your turkey sandwiches. I can practically taste it now, Ann. May I stop by for a plate?

    Okay, every single thing on that plate looks scrumptious, but those french fries are calling my name! I love that cut of french fries. I need to cut them like that from now on.
