I'm always looking for new and interesting ways to use leftover turkey—especially around the holidays. Make this skillet meal as spicy as you like by varying the amount of curry powder. —Martha Balser, Cincinnati, Ohio
I’ve fixed this many times and like to make it differently on occasion. I’ve swapped in other meats, such as chicken sausage, veal or ground pork, and added in summer squash, zucchini, green beans and mushrooms, depending on what’s in season. Also, fresh herbs really perk up the flavors. —Kim Forni, Laconia, New Hampshire
This good-for-you entree can be on your family’s plates quicker than Chinese takeout…and for a lot less money! Ginger and brown sugar flavor the sauce that spices up the turkey as it bakes. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
Like Mexican food? Then you’ll love this fast and healthy alternative to traditional tacos from Maria Gobel of Greenfield, Wisconsin. With its Southwestern flair and popular ingredients, it’s a dish you’ll make often.
Family and guests rave about this hearty, comforting potpie and its light flaky crust. The "secret" crust ingredients are Parmesan cheese and instant mashed potato flakes. It's a great make-ahead dish. On busy days, I prepare this entree in the morning and just bake it in the evening.

“I cook my hearty entree, Ragu Bolognese, slowly, which creates a rich sauce that’s absolutely delicious. The veggies add fiber, and I use skim milk and turkey sausage to keep it lighter,” Mary Bilyeu writes from Ann Arbor, Michigan. The flavorful dish is great for family, but special enough for company.
I season turkey with a blend of rosemary, garlic and paprika. Because I rub that mixture directly on the meat under the skin, I can remove the skin before serving and not lose any of the flavor. The result is a lower-in-fat, yet delicious entree that makes the perfect centerpiece for holiday meals. —Dorothy Pritchett, Wills Point, Texas
