Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes

Evelyn Reyes

The only thing better than a thanksgiving meal are the leftovers that remain during the holiday weekend for the whole family to enjoy. A classic turkey leftover sandwich might be your go to, but why not spice it up a notch this year? Create new dishes your family will thank you for.

It is only fair that after the many hours spent preparing such a massive thanksgiving feast, that the leftovers are transformed into more delicious meals all your loved ones can devour during the rest of the holiday break. After all, it is not every weekend that you get to spend some quality time with your relatives, specially those that have to fly into town.

We’ve done all the research for you and have gathered a few of the most mouth watering recipes for you to prepare. One thing less you need to worry about. With everything from Turkey Breakfast Tacos to “Thanks” Benedict, you and your family might end up loving the leftover dishes more than the actual meal. All recipes will require the use of the leftovers of a typical thanksgiving spread. Anything from leftover turkey, sweet potato, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberry sauce will be put to use.
