Our fridges are stuffed with Thanksgiving leftovers. As a general rule of thumb, we try to use leftovers within three days. But what if you have at least 3 days of leftovers? We have some ideas to avoid the doldrums of eating the same thing 5 meals in a row.
Thanksgiving Leftovers – Recreated!
Leftover Mashed Potato Pizza! Spread leftover mashed potatoes over a pizza crust. Sprinkle a little extra garlic, some shredded cheese, cubed leftover turkey or bacon and pop in the oven!
Turkey pot pie is always an easy favorite. Literally you can through practically all of your thanksgiving leftovers in a pot pie – especially that extra gravy! Another idea is the classic thanksgiving leftover casserole – one of my personal favorites.
For a Blustery Day:
As Winnie the Pooh would say… it’s a blustery day! So what’s the best way to warm up with those thanksgiving leftovers? Move over cold turkey sandwich. We found a recipe for Turkey Veggie Soup with Stuffing Dumplings, and I’m dying to try it. Check out the recipe on the Food Network here!
Thanksgiving leftovers for breakfast? I know, I was skeptical too – but some of these ideas look amazing! Try a turkey and potato skillet hash with cheese and an over-easy egg. Or breakfast sandwiches made with turkey and cranberry sauce on waffles. Doesn’t sound half bad, right?
We hope you all had a marvelous Thanksgiving! We’re so thankful for every one of you that we’ve gotten to work with over this past year – and we’re looking forward to all the friends we’ll meet this upcoming year. Enjoy your families and your cozy homes this weekend!
