What To Do With Thanksgiving Leftovers

You probably didn’t think you could ever make enough food for all of the Thanksgiving guests– but now you have two pans of mashed potatoes and more turkey than you know what to do with. Ah, Thanksgiving leftovers.

Instead of getting tired of the same turkey-stuffing-cranberry sauce combo or eating turkey sandwiches for days, combine your leftovers in new and simple ways. We’ve scrounged up a few of the more easy and creative options for your Turkey Day leftovers:

Cranberry Turnovers

We all know no one is going to be finishing off the cranberry sauce anytime soon. But turn it into a warm breakfast pastry and you’ll have people fighting over the crumbs. Beyond the cranberry, all you need is puff pastry, cream cheese, eggs, and sugar. Find the recipe here.

Sweet Potato Waffles

We know, it sounds a little strange. But just wait until you try them– you might like them even more than these spiced pumpkin waffles. It’s the perfect morning after Turkey Day meal, and will use up all of that sweet potato. Try this recipe.

Leftover Holiday Ham Pizza Rolls

Still working your way through 12 pounds of ham? Turn it into a scrumptious bite sized pizza roll with more puff pastry, provolone cheese, pizza sauce, and an egg.

Creamy Turkey and Noodles

Spice up the dry day-old turkey with some cream and pasta— it’s great both fresh out of the oven and reheated all week long!

Simple Shepherd’s Pie

But what to do with all that leftover potato? Make a dent in the leftovers with a simple shepherd’s pie. The ultimate comfort food, this recipe combines turkey, veggies, and plenty of mashed potato on top.

Let us know in the comments below how you creatively use up your Turkey Day leftovers! It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season and fuel your Black Friday shopping!

The Orange County Rescue Mission developed in response to a serious need in the OC community. Sergeant Lewis Whitehead, a resident of Orange County in the 1960s, had his life changed in 1963. Passing by a bridge, he overhead a confrontation underneath the bridge. What he found there shocked him to his core. It was like the dark underside of the affluent and easygoing OC life above the bridge– children, women, and men: sick, without food and shelter. Continue Reading →
