After all of that preparation and cooking in the kitchen...those Thanksgiving Leftovers really make it all worth while. Of course making yourself the traditional Turkey Sandwich with all the sides smothered on top is a classic choice for a reason. But if your family is anything like ours, you'll have so many leftovers, you won't know what to do with it all. These recipes and ideas have been tried and tested throughout the years.
Leftover Cranberry Sauce
The fun thing about Cranberries is that they're so versatile.
We love to go easy on ourselves and make easy meals after Thanksgiving. Grilled Cheese is a great go-to after you've done all that cooking. Use any specialty cheese left over from your appetizers platters and melt it over your favorite bread, smothered with leftover cranberry sauce in between. An ordinary sandwich will be transformed into an unbelievably tasty lunch.
These Cranberry Orange Muffins are zesty and full of flavor. They are great to make if you have a lot of leftover cranberry sauce!
Fun Dinner Creations
Use some of your leftover Turkey Meat and fold it in to your Quesadillas. You can really put whatever you want in them. Cranberry sauce, stuffing...you name it!
Thanksgiving Enchiladas are fun to make if you're in the mood to get creative! It depends on how adventurous you want to get with these. You can simply use the turkey as your meat in your enchiladas...or you could sneak in some of your leftover sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. It's all up to you!
