Lovin’ the Leftovers!

What to do with thanksgiving leftovers.

With a Thanksgiving season of homemade food and family gatherings comes a fridge full of leftovers!  Sure, we’ve all seen the Friends episode with Ross’ coveted leftover Thanksgiving turkey sandwich, complete with a “moist-maker” layer, but there’s more to Thanksgiving leftovers than just carved turkey sandwiches!

Here are our favorite leftovers recipe ideas for the most popular dishes on your Thanksgiving dinner table:


  • Turkey Noodle Soup: Find your favorite chicken noodle soup recipe and substitute turkey for chicken!
  • BBQ Turkey Pizza
  • Turkey Pot Pie
  • Turkey Sandwich: And, of course, who doesn’t love a couple of thick slices of carved turkey in between two slices of bread, slathered with cranberry sauce and gravy?


  • Mashed Potato Patties: Seer flattened scoops of mashed potatoes in a frying pan.

Cranberry Sauce

  • Cranberry Chutney
  • Cranberry Oatmeal:  Add some leftover cranberry sauce to a steaming hot bowl of plain oatmeal.  Add dried cranberries, brown sugar and milk.

Of course, there’s always the option to use all of your leftover Thanksgiving menu items in a Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole!  It’s like having Thanksgiving dinner all over again and all in one bite!
