Brilliant Ways to Revive Your Leftovers!
Once the big feast is over, don’t just settle for rewarming those leftovers – get creative, turning turkey and all the trimmings into new, tasty dishes.
Turkey: Show your turkey leftovers some love and create “take-two” meals like turkey quesadillas. Add turkey to a tortilla with cheese, and toss in leftover veggies, stuffing and cranberry sauce to make a “Thanksgiving quesadilla.” Soups and pasta dishes are also great for utilizing leftover turkey. Or, combine the two and enjoy it in turkey noodle soup!
Potatoes: If you happen to have leftovers of this crowd-favorite, create a loaded mashed potato bake with ingredients like bacon, cheese and sour cream. You can also transform leftover mashed potatoes into potato pancakes or go Italian and make homemade gnocchi.
Veggies: Bring leftover veggies back to life the morning after your turkey day feast! Toss veggies like Brussels sprouts, carrots and onions into a hash with eggs for a hearty breakfast. Top it with any leftover gravy or cranberry sauce.
Cranberry Sauce: Leftover cranberry sauce is such a treat! Bring it to the breakfast realm to top pancakes or waffles, add it to oatmeal or use it as a spread for bagels. For a savory application, toss it in the slow cooker with meatballs along with chili sauce and spices for a deliciously sweet-savory-sticky meatball dinner!
