Enjoy every bite of that leftover turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and more with these 9 creative ways to use Thanksgiving leftovers.
I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving is the leftovers!
When I was a kid, my mom, dad, sister and I would go to my aunt’s house for Thanksgiving. I always loved spending the day with my whole extended family, but the downside to having Thanksgiving at someone else’s house was that we didn’t have leftovers for the next day. So, my mom started making Thanksgiving Part Deux the Friday after Turkey Day. The four of us would feast on turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce all over again and had leftovers to enjoy for the next few days. It was great!
This year, I’ll be doing the cooking, and even though only four of us will be eating (Will’s sister and her fiancé will be visiting), I’m planning on cooking for 8! The leftovers will be in abundance, and I can’t wait.
What do I plan on doing with all those leftovers? Besides having straight up Thanksgiving dinner on repeat, I asked my fellow foodies for suggestions on what to do with Thankgiving leftovers. Their suggestions did not disappoint. Looks like I’ll be getting a little more creative this year with my leftovers, and I’m not mad about.
