    That is right up my alley - I have used dark turkey meat in curry and it comes out just fine. Recipe - good luck trying to get me to write down any of my recipes - basically I use the strongest curry powder sold at Indian Spices (TRS hot, but if you are back in the UK, Tesco vindaloo powder is just fine as well - I have used it to my satisfaction), amplify it with pickled chilis, red pepper powder, tons of powdered garlic, and I use wine, whiskey (sp intentional) and/or vodka to cook the meat/"dissolve" the spices so as to avoid oil.

    After eating that lot, curry won't be the only thing "right up your alley"...I should imagine a few rolls of bog paper will be too!!

    On topic, is there really all that much that can be done with cooked, leftover turkey??

    Other than curry, sandwiches, salads, giving it to the cat etc??

    I use raw turkey for the curry - raw turkey parts are not hard to come by here. Leftovers are best used in sandwiches or salads, or just reheated in the microwave with some commercial sauce or another for a quick meal. Soaking it in wine and spices might also prevent dryness when reheating it in a microwave.

    Two suggestions: First, turkey noodle soup---just boil the leftovers, take out the bones, add some lovely frozen mixed veggies, egg noodles, and Vegeta (or other seasoning to your taste).

    Be careful not to overcook the vegetables and noodles. Serve straight out of the pot, or refrigerate and heat individual portions in the microwave. Add a gob of butter, some sour cream, Tabasco, paprika, whatever, and eat with soup crackers.

    Second suggestion: turkey stew. Follow the above instructions, but leave out the egg noodles; stir in some milk or cream and a bit of flour to thicken it.

    If you have Bisquick (available at Stockmann's), follow the directions on the box for dumplings and add the mixture to the stew in spoonfuls.

    Serve with warm buttered (garlic) bread or biscuits (again, follow the instructions on the Bisquick box) and a nice mixed salad on a cold winter's eve.

    I want to die like my grandfather - smiling in his sleep. Not screaming with horror, like his passengers.
