It started earlier today when a friend was telling me about an incredible Christmas Eve dinner he'd enjoyed that included a "Salvadorean Turkey" his aunt made for her Salvadorean husband as she has for many years.
Roast turkey with chiles? You know that caught my attention.
There are many recipes for it on the internet - it's a big tradition - but one thing led to another, and I ended up mesmerized by this bird and how well it takes and transforms all sorts of herbs, seasonings, etc.
Here are a hundred Roast Turkey recipes. I haven't used them, but start here, if you like, with Bourbon/Molasses Turkey, or Apricot-glazed Turkey with Roasted Shallots, perhaps? I think if you key in "turkey sandwiches" or "turkey leftovers", you might get some more cool ideas for this post-holiday season.
Happy Boxing Day!

I'm always looking for new ways to cook and eat turkey. It's the only meat that is blood type/genotype compliant for our entire family of O's, B's, and A. The only problem I have is trying to find a whole turkey that is natural and not injected with avoids. "Nature's Promise" is a popular brand in our local grocery store, but finding a good turkey is hit or miss and will likely be non-existent come spring or summer.

I like allrecipes.com but never did a search on turkey, so it will be a great place to go when I want to try something different. Some of the flavors look delicious!

See if you can find any farms in the area that grow turkeys- you may be able to  buy turkeys any time of year if you have a relationship with a farmer.

I've never used the site's recipes, either.
But it's so packed with ideas that I thought I'd share it here for the very reason you cite: Turkey is universally permitted.

Like many recipes I post, take them for inspiration and "modify according to type". I tend to only notice recipes if I think a Nomad could have them.

I actually thought of you and your green egg, gcg.
There are "apricot-glazed" birds with herbs, as well as recipes calling for some hot peppers, if you're so inclined  .
So, yeah, you and I are treating this similarly.
I've likewise been known to buy cookbooks that give me ideas but which I never use word-for-word...

thanks SanJ. I might try to cook some turkey in the egg again after the funeral and the wedding are over. Long story and not on topic.

That's a tease, GCG.  
Hope all is well.
I usually modify recipes as well - usually because I don't have all the ingredients or  one is a definite avoid.
Lately I've been buying the turkey tenderloins at WFs and just cooking them on top of the stove in water with a little turkey or chicken broth added.  Then I use the turkey for whatever - sandwiches, mixed with quinoa or rice pasta,  or just with roasted veggies or homemade cranberry sauce.  Quick and easy and lasts for a few days.  If you cook it long enough, it shreds like pulled pork and you could use it with a barbecue sauce too.

Good tip, Jane - thanks for that.
A total aside is that lamb (and other meat) tenderloins are similarly available and similarly versatile.
Now, back to our (turkey!) show.

I usually cook turkey thighs or legs. That is if the local grocer doesn't grind them up.

Guy Fieri had a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives episode featuring Turkey.
There was one place - in Florida? - that made something called "TurDucken": A whole turkey, roasted with a whole duck inside it that had a whole chicken inside it, stuffed with andouille sausage and bread, etc., for 12-13 hours.
After roasting, he removes it from the oven and slices it in half longitudinally, and it's just this multi-layered poultry construction...
But there were more "normal" dishes, too.
Apparently there's a turkey-only restaurant right here in Santa Rosa, California (which is where Fieri has/had his restaurant{s?), too).
Shows that it can be done, if you're a BTD person and want to open a restaurant - people will not scorn turkey dishes of all kinds!

Jane sorry to be so long spotting this. Like most engineers and INTJs I can be incredibly literal. My Aunt died December 26th after a year long battle with pancreatic cancer. A cancer that her dog had tried to diagnose months before the doctor. The dog would act like he was trying to dig into her abdomen. This was followed 10 days later by my oldest nieces wedding at House of Blue in New Orleans French Quarter. She paraded 2 block up Decatur St. in her wedding dress and 4 inch heels to the club
This monday I took my 10 year old boxer dog to the vet where they operated and removed 4 masses. In another 12 days they will removed the stitches and tell me if it is cancer.
I do recommend the turkey meat loaf on recipebase. It has carrots, apple, spinach, flaxseed, and kelp powder. It's great.

I use turkey meatballs, turkey bacon, and turkey burgers!  I will do a beef one on occassion.  Turkey pepperoni is also good.  I do tolerate fats better with milk thistle, but still avoid it most of the time.  Nomads and hunters do not have to be as concerned about fat content as explorer and gatherer types.  Teachers can do turkey pretty well i think, and warriors too.

GCG,
I would love to have seen that wedding in NOLA!
We did see a bride and groom coming out of St. Louis Rey in Jackson square one time.
Just love that city.

Hoping your boxer sweetie is ok!

Love turkey and make it different ways several times a week for my family.
I have been trying to cut out chicken so am eating only turkey and fish.
