Flavorful turkey leftover hot dishes

As usual, it’s about leftover turkey recipes today. In the shape of hot dishes. Some say casseroles, I say hot dishes! Today’s recipes are using a lot of the same ingredients, but in different combinations. You can prepare some of them ahead of time, refrigerate or freeze them until ready to put in the oven, and have a full meal to enjoy in a short amount of time. Be sure to add extra baking time if refrigerated. To thaw, if frozen, take hot dish from freezer to fridge early in the day or over night to thaw slowly. DO NOT set on the counter to thaw
