With all the cooking enthusiasm around Thanksgiving dinner, and the whole family gathered, we’re sure there was a lot of food -- and probably a lot leftover. It’s tempting to just microwave it all the next day for a repeat performance. And if you’re ok with rubbery turkey or lukewarm potatoes -- then great! But if you’re looking for something more creative and delicious, here are some ideas:
Make turkey soup! Chop up the leftover turkey into smaller chunks, throw in leftover green beans, carrots, or other vegetables, and stew up a delicious soup! Here’s one recipe.
Got extra stuffing? Here’s a great breakfast idea: Muffin Cup Scotch Eggs.
Put Cranberry sauce on your morning pancakes for a great post-holiday zing. You can also turn that sauce into a tangy salsa.
You can even turn that extra pie into all-new desserts. Throw a slice of cold pumpkin or apple pie into a blender with milk and ice cream and you have a shake!
The possibilities for your leftovers are as varied as the Thanksgiving dinner itself. So instead of resorting to your microwave, continue to wow your guests with transformed leftovers. Happy cooking!
