Some people say that leftovers are one of the best parts of Thanksgiving. They’re certainly among my
favorite holiday traditions. While you could just make the same plate for the next 5 meals, you could also try one of these other ways to dress up your leftovers…
It doesn’t get much better than turkey soup on a cold post-Thanksgiving afternoon. Add lots of veggies to give yourself a nourishing post-holiday boost.
Take a pie crust (store-bought is fine) and throw in whatever you didn’t eat at dinner. Top with a layer of mashed potatoes or another pie crust and bake.
Line muffin tins and fill with your leftover times of choice (stuffing, chopped turkey meat, and veggies are especially good for this). Crack some eggs and pour over until each cup if about 2/3 of the way full. Bake at 350o until eggs are cooked.
Toss leafy greens with turkey meat, roasted brussels sprouts, and cranberry sauce with a little balsamic and olive oil. You can even add a spoonful of stuffing if you want to get weird-is-good with it.
Layer mashed potatoes in a bowl with turkey meat, veggies, and gravy and/or cranberry sauce. All the flavors in every bite.
