Are you looking for delicious recipes to reinvent Thanksgiving Leftovers?! From Breakfast to Dinner, from turkey to mashed potatoes to cranberry sauce, these recipes will make your Thanksgiving Leftovers shine!
I love Thanksgiving.
But I truly think I love Thanksgiving Leftovers the MOST.
And I am not talking about just heating up a plate of leftover turkey and sweet potato casserole, although delicious, I am talking about making something new with those leftovers.
Every year I when I sit down to plan my Thanksgiving Meal, I ALWAYS get more excited thinking about the leftovers.
While I love the huge feast, I only want to eat it ONCE!!!
But friends, the thought of taking leftovers and turning them into something delicious with minimal effort–now that is what I am talking about!
Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes
Leftover Cranberry Sauce is the perfect base for this BBQ Turkey Pizza. It is sweet, spicy, and tangy! A great way to celebrate Pizza Friday the day after Thanksgiving.
Copycat Panera Turkey Sandwich
This is my ULTIMATE Thanksgiving leftover recipe. Roasted turkey, sharp cheddar, and thin apple slices are piled on top of Cranberry Walnut Bread for the BEST turkey sandwich you have.
Southwest Turkey Soup
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.
Thanksgiving Egg Rolls
Now, this dish uses it all–Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and gravy! And hands down is one of the most fun recipes to use up those Thanksgiving Leftovers.
If you like pierogi you will LOVE this spin on Mashed Potato Lasagna!
Leftover turkey and cranberry sauce are paired with a sharp cheese in a quick and easy quesadilla. This is one of my favorites!
Hidden Veggie Quesadilla
Use leftover Twice Baked Butternut Squash to make a simple cheese quesadilla filled with some veggies! This one is great for the kids!
Sweet Potato Waffles
Sweet Potato Pancakes
If waffles aren’t your thing, try out these Sweet Potato Pancakes instead! And in place of the apple compote, use cranberry sauce or applesauce to speed up breakfast!
Sweet Potato Smoothie
Use sweet potato casserole or leftover pumpkin pie and make a quick smoothie for a perfect treat!
