What to do with leftover turkey (Part 1)?

Now that Christmas is over, what do you do with the leftover turkey?  I will be posting some dishes that I made from leftover turkey and this is the first:

Leek & Turkey Porridge
Right after a heavy Christmas lunch party, I wanted something light & easy for dinner and preferably something fast and simple to cook.  With the leftover turkey meat and bones, and some cooked rice, porridge is the best one-dish meal to prepare.  I used the meat and bone from just one turkey wing to make two big bowls of porridge.  Here are what you need:

Cooked rice (or uncooked rice)
Leek (sliced)
Carrot (chopped)
Turkey bone
Turkey meat (shredded, marinate with some turkey sauce or light soya sauce, pepper and sesame oil)
1 egg, beaten
Salt and pepper to taste

1) Put water in pot to boil and add turkey bone, cooked rice, leek and carrot (the amount of water depends on how thick you want your porridge to be).  Cook for 15 mins over medium-low heat.
2) Once the porridge is cooked to the thickness that you want, add the marinated turkey meat and stir well.
3) Add salt and pepper to taste.
4) Stir in one beaten egg and serve hot.
