Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

Even though (and perhaps especially because) we cook a lot because we're a large family, we try to minimize waste as much as possible. Since Thanksgiving was yesterday, I'm sure like us you have Thanksgiving leftovers that you would like to do something with. Look no further; I’ve put together a list of my favorite recipes that you can use to cut into that mountain of mashed potatoes, stuffing and more.

You can stuff mushrooms with stuffing and make cute appetizers that will disappear in no time. You can blend vegetable casserole into soups.You can also make a thanksgiving leftover casserole with mashed potatoes, use either stuffing, vegetable casseroles or mashed potatoes as a filling in savory tarts. Last but not least, You could always use slices of turkey and cranberry sauce in a sandwich that you can pack while shopping on Black Friday.

Finally, I would like to share with you a joke that my husband Lulu made at the dinner table. I had made some miso gravy for the vegetarians at the house and Lulu exclaimed: "Miso gravy? Mmm Me so hungry!" No one laughed but me; I have to admit I laughed so hard. You might not find it funny but what can I say, maybe that’s the reason why Lulu and I are made for each other.
