One of the great things about Thanksgiving is lots of leftovers. One of the not so good things about Thanksgiving is lots of leftovers. I’m one of those who loves the leftovers for the next day but then run out of gas eating them a second day. Go online and you’ll find lots of ideas for using leftovers, but I confess that many of them seem contrived.
The tried and true of course is a fat turkey sandwich with toasted bread, slices of turkey, cranberry sauce and gravy or mayonnaise. You could even slide a little stuffing or sliced brie in along with some crisp romaine lettuce. I’ll bet most of you have your fav.
Here are some ideas that I’ve done over the years:
TURKEY POT PIE
MEXICAN TURKEY NOODLE SOUP
MACARONI AND CHEESE FRITTERS
RISOTTO WITH BRUSSELS SPROUTS, ROASTED GARLIC AND LEMON
TURKEY AND WAFFLES
LEFTOVER CRANBERRY SAUCE CRISP
