Put your Thanksgiving leftovers to good use — and create a few super easy and unexpected meals that will help you get some extra dishes out of your unfinished feast.
Turkey and Stuffing Eggs Benedict
For a different take on old-fashioned Eggs Benedict, this day-after breakfast is delectable and simple! Just follow the same basic recipe for regular Eggs Benedict, but instead of an English muffin, take your leftover stuffing and shape it into ½ inch-thick patties. Heat in a skillet, then top it with thinly sliced turkey breast, a poached egg and hollandaise sauce. Yum!
Thanksgiving in a Blanket
A tube of refrigerated crescent rolls is needed for this dish. Just roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface, place a dollop of mashed potatoes, turkey, stuffing, and cranberries on each, roll them up and bake until golden brown. Serve with gravy on the side for dipping.
BBQ Turkey Pizza
You may want to try this one when your leftover turkey supply is running low. Take a few cups of chopped turkey and mix it into some tangy BBQ sauce. Place it on top of a prebaked pizza crust, top with your choice of melted cheese and voila! Dinner is done.
Savory and Sweet Turkey Waffle Sandwiches
Skip the typical post-Thanksgiving turkey sandwich and try this out! You can make your own waffles or use the pre-made kind. Whichever you choose, just make sure to get them crispy before you begin. Smear one layer of each sandwich with cream cheese and cranberry sauce. Place turkey slices on top, along with some arugula, and another crispy waffle to close off the sandwich. Then, sprinkle with powdered sugar. These can be heated in the oven or served cold – your choice!
There’s no doubt that your twists on leftover turkey will surprise your family and friends. So kick back and relax the rest of your holiday weekend, and enjoy these amazing creations.
