Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes – Transform your Thanksgiving Leftovers into a delicious pasta dinner, soup, appetizer, or just a snack!
Hiiii! Happy Black Fridaaaaay! How was your Thanksgiving??? Any arguments, hugs, proposals??? DO tell! AND, yes, I AM shouting. I am excited for all of us because, A) we’re shopping and B) we’re about to enjoy Thanksgiving Leftovers for 3 days! I live for this.
First, let’s start with taking care of that leftover TURKEY.
Can we just discuss this beautiful Turkey Corn Chowder for a minute? This is just a one-pot, 30-minute-deal meal. That is all you will need to make this delicious and hearty, quick-cooking chowder, loaded with turkey and corn. Get on this, ASAP! You won’t regret it. GET THE RECIPE
How about this Turkey Tetrazzini with Fettuccine?! This is my husband’s favorite. The dude could care less for turkey meat, but toss it in with some creamy pasta, and he’s all in, head first. GET THE RECIPE
Then we have this Turkey Frittata to talk about. This simple Leftover Turkey Frittata with spinach and mozzarella is easy to make, is gluten-free, and bursting with an abundance of flavors. GET THE RECIPE
Moving on along to our super favorite side dish: leftover CRANBERRY SAUCE
Also, here’s a perfect appetizer to serve with some of that cranberry sauce: Cranberry Sauce Topped Baked Brie! In fact, I served this yesterday right after dinner with the few tablespoons of sauce that was left-over. Honestly, it was gone a minute or two after I set it on the table. GET THE RECIPE
Finally, what are we going to do with those leftover MASHED POTATOES?!
I’ll tell you what: Spinach and Garlic Potato Patties! Made with a mixture of mashed potatoes, spinach, and garlic, I bet you these patties will make it to your weekly meal rotation, scouts Honor. GET THE RECIPE
Got some Mashed Sweet Potatoes to take care of?! I’m looking at this Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie for tomorrow’s din din, and I am really looking forward to it. It’s just layers of meat and veggies topped with sweet potato mash. In.credible! GET THE RECIPE
Are you dealing with a surplus of butternut squash?! We ain’t because we killed that entire Crock Pot Butternut Squash with Apples side dish that I shared with you couple of weeks back. That was really, reaaaalllllyyyy good! But if you’ve got some squash leftovers, make this Butternut Squash and Spinach Pie. It is a show stopper. GET THE RECIPE
I think that should just about cover it. Right? If you have any other ideas OR if you need help with anything else, please leave me a comment! I’m pretty sure we can find something in the thousand recipes that I’ve shared with you these past 4+ years. 😀
Have a great weekend ahead, don’t spend all your money, and remember to eat all of the above. It’s the Holidays – wear your stretchy pants. XO
