It's time for turkey! Thanksgiving is right around the corner and YouTube star Laura Vitale is joining TODAY to make the most out of every last morsel of tasty turkey. She's cooking up a beautiful bird and using the leftovers to make three more delicious dishes. She shows us how to make a perfectly roasted turkey with fresh herbs, a sesame noodle salad with turkey, cheesy turkey enchiladas and a barbecue turkey pizza.

Perfect Thanksgiving Turkey

This is the perfect Thanksgiving turkey. Herbed butter keeps the meat flavorful and moist and helps create a beautiful brown finish on deliciously crispy skin.

Turkey Sesame Noodle Salad

I love this recipe because it is effortlessly easy to prepare and it is so delicious! It's light yet full of flavor and perfect for repurposing leftover turkey.

Green Turkey Enchiladas

These enchiladas come together in a snap. They are spicy and satisfying and so great for enjoying on a chilly night. Precooked turkey and store-bought enchilada sauce keep prep quick, so they're also perfect for busy weeknights.

Barbecue Turkey Pizza

Crispy, sweet and slightly spicy, this pizza is by far the best use of leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
