Hmmm, I have a ninja, and lots of leftover turkey. I don't particularly like turkey and saved the good stuff and threw the carcass away, including all the meat that is attached to it. I might give your ninja suggestion a try. I guess if I add enough celery, onions and garlic, with mayo, it won't taste too strongly like turkey, and it'll be good on toast.Had about a half pound of turkey meat left from the carcass. See, as one cuts the meat small flakes come off slices, and with the back and other areas there are small pieces of meat that don't end up on the serving tray. Each year I collect that in a cereal bowl. Makes great turkey salad much like tuna salad or chicken salad.
A few years back I had some teeth cut out. Instead of eating jello until the stitches were out I used a Ninja food processor to pulverize stuff like Fritos, sandwiches and anything else I wanted to eat via spoon. For years I chopped the turkey meat with a knife. It took about an hour to get it to the consistency of rice sized pieces. But the Ninja does it in seconds.

Once the meat is "minced" you can add ingredients like relish, pulverised pickles, onions or what have you. Add a binder like mayo, or mustard if you like mustard.

I added celery and mayo.
Mix thoroughly then add salt/pepper to taste. I had a leftover stalk of celery and pulverized it to tiny bits. About 15 twists with a sea salt grinder , and 15 twists of a black peppercorn grinder gave it the flavor I wanted.

The finished product.
You can eat it right away but I put mine covered with alluminum foil in the fridge each year and let it age a few hours. A half pound makes 3-4 sandwiches depending on how thick you like it.
They died one by one over about a 5 year period and would break off at the gum line. Runs in the family. My dad had all but two of his teeth cut out before he was 50.OUCH! That's a lot of teeth. Currently, I'm missing 1.5. Becoming well seasoned ain't for sissies.
