Bobby Flay wants us to liven up the leftovers. He and his pal Lori Loughlin gathered a group of food bloggers to talk turkey. They whipped up three treats and sent us home with recipes. Still have turkey in the fridge and can't stand the idea of another turkey sandwich? Get spicy with this recipe from Bobby Flay for Turkey Paella with Lemon-Smoked Paprika Aioli.
