I love Thankgiving. But I truly think I love Thankgiving the most for the leftovers. And I am not talking about a plate of leftover turkey–I am talking about making something new with the dishes from Thankgiving.
This Lasagna is an incredibly comforting way to use up all your leftover mashed potatoes and turn them into the star of dinner!
I love to make this quesadilla with leftover butternut squash.
This is a perfectly balanced savory and sweet way to use up leftovers and makes a great lunch. The quesadilla features both cranberry sauce and roasted turkey.
I love this soup because it cooks while you shop on Black Friday and has a completely different flavor profile than your Thanksgiving dinner–which sometimes is a welcomed change.
Chicken Recipes that work Perfectly with Leftover Turkey:
I mean, a creamy cheese sauce….need I say more. This is fabulous with leftover turkey.
This is such a fresh, light take on leftovers. It is a welcome change for sure.
I love to make Turkey Pot Pie by using the leftover turkey and then chopping up the veggie tray for the vegetables in this dish and finally add in the leftover gravy to the sauce. Lip smacking good, comfort food!
Hearty, easy, and wholesome. This soup is a fabulous dish to warm up to and is a great gluten free, dairy free (if you don’t top with cheese) dish.
So what is YOUR favorite way to use up leftovers? Which one of these recipes excites you most?
