Default Turkey ideas???

Help- I need ideas for different ways to cook turkey. My local Gordon food Service has there frozen 'Holiday Turkeys' on clearance for $4 for a 12-14 pound turkey. At 30 cents a pound, I can ignore that the box says "Happy Holidays"...especially since ya don't eat the box I figure I can use it in just about any recipe that calls for chicken, right? I also plan on grinding some of it up for hamburger replacement with the attachment on my Kithenaid stand mixer. Any good recipes? I don't want to feel like I'm eating Thanksgiving dinner every night, which is what most of the turkey recipes seem to be.

Christine Restarting all over....again...but at least I'm trying
Taking little steps~ 10- 15 pound steps to be exact
1st Step~12/20/05 ~~~ 2nd Step~1/31/06
~~~2/21/06 I've released 10% of my body weight!!!~~~
Now onto Step #3 of 10- Releasing another 15 pounds~
One for each 5 pounds released

When Katrina hit last year I had a couple of turkey breasts in the freezer and had to cook them since our electricity was out for almost a week and they were thawing fast. We have an electric stove and oven as well so I had to cook them on the grill. I shredded some up and made turkey salad, sliced some for sandwiches and salads, chopped a little and seasoned it with chili and garlic powder and used it for quesadillas/buritos. My parents' electicity came back on before ours so I took the second breast over to her house (it was already grilled) and made a pot of vegetable/noodle soup, a pan of turkey tetrazinni, and a pan of turkey, broccoli, and rice, casserole.

You might also check allrecipes.com. They have a section on using up holiday leftovers that might give you some ideas.
