Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

The guests have gone home and the dishes are washed, but the Thanksgiving feast doesn’t have to end! While leftovers are a delicious reminder of the meal you enjoyed yesterday, they don’t have to be the exact same meal. Try transforming your Thanksgiving leftovers into a fun new food creation. From sandwiches to soups, or tacos to smoothies, not a single bite will go to waste with these amazing Thanksgiving leftover recipes.



Face it, even as much as we enjoy the Thanksgiving meal, leftover turkey and taters can get boring. Until now! 

Not the Thanksgiving host? No worries. Now you’ll have to reason to turn down a bulging bag of leftover turkey or the pleads to help clean out the refrigerator. OR… if the extended family gobbles up the feast these recipes are noteworthy enough to be tried out later. C’mon, who doesn’t need a new recipe added to our regular weekly go-to menus?
