Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

by Angela on November 29, 2011

I love Thanksgiving.  I love everything about it; I love the purpose of Thanksgiving, the food, spending time with family, and the leftovers!  You may love Thanksgiving too, but if you are starting to get the turkey leftover blues don’t fear, I found several recipes that you can use your Thanksgiving leftovers with.  Remember, half your work is already done, you’ve already cooked lots of great food, now let’s see what you can do with it to save time and make something tasty!

Of course the Butterball web-site has several from including one for Cajun Style Red Beans and Rice with Turkey to Turkey Vegetable Soup with Angel Hair Pasta.  On the Food Network site I found 5 Ways to Use Leftover Canned Pumpkin .

Then I struck the leftover goldmine! Serious Eats had tons of recipes for just about every leftover!  Brussels Sprouts, Potato and Turkey Hash with a Poached egg, Cranberry Salsa Salad, AND much more!   The one I will definitely be tying is the Turkey Tortilla Soup from Serious Eats (pictured above)!  We are actually having our second Thanksgiving tonight, just me, my girls and my husband.  So I’m ready to enjoy it all over again, and I can’t wait to make my favorite leftover recipe…Turkey Tacos!
