5 Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

November 15th, 2016

It is almost guaranteed that you will find yourself with leftovers after Thanksgiving. While it can be fun to heat up all the dishes and have a second holiday meal, you can only eat turkey and mashed potatoes so many times. Even turkey sandwiches – made with your perfectly roasted turkey – can become boring if you eat them enough.

Take advantage of these simple recipes to help you use your leftovers.
