Thanksgiving is a great time for the family to join together and enjoy a feast filled with turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and cranberry sauce. But for some, the highlight of Thanksgiving isn’t the day itself, it’s the leftovers.
Check out these ideas to make sure you get the best use out of your leftover meals!
The Classic. Grab some cheese, turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce and put it between two slices of bread. It’s perfect for a quick meal after Black Friday shopping.
Shape your pizza dough to the size you’d like. Start by microwaving the mashed potatoes to make them soften, and then spread a layer over the dough. Top with stuffing crumbles, then shredded turkey. Then, add mozzarella and cheddar cheese over top. Bake at 500 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Drizzle gravy over top before serving.
Press rounds of prepared pie crust into muffin tins and bake at 425 degrees for 8 or 10 minutes. Then, fill will leftover turkey, gravy, potatoes, or any other leftover thanksgiving side. Warm the pies in the oven for a few minutes, then serve.
Tear or chop the leftover dark meat turkey into bite-sized chunks. Divvy them up between taco shells then add your favorite fixings: lettuce, salsa, sour cream, black beans, etc.
Roll frozen pizza dough into a 14x10 inch rectangle. Then, spread out rows of your leftovers—turkey, stuffing, potatoes, corn, cranberries, or any other side. Drizzle gravy over everything. Fold one inch of dough over the filling, then roll as tightly as you can. Brush the dough with melted butter and bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
