What To Do With Thanksgiving Leftovers

It’s Black Friday and you probably have some leftovers from the Thanksgiving feast. Do you like to eat the same meal all over again? Many of us do! But it depends on each person, and of course, it depends on what exactly you had in the first place that may or may not hold up the same in the second round. Just in case you want to spice things up a bit with your post-Thanksgiving meals, here are some awesome ideas.

One fairly simple idea would be to make a Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole, like they recommend at Favorite Family Recipes. All you have to do is combine and layer several of your leftover dishes, then bake! They also suggest making sandwiches that can be tasty whether cold from the fridge or heated up. Why not try out something that’s so little effort compared to making a whole new meal? It costs less, too!

Becky from The Cookie Rookie has a fairly unique idea: Thanksgiving Leftovers Quesadilla! This is a sure way to liven up the food from the day before. Plus, it’s easy enough to pack up and take with you if you are heading out for some Black Friday shopping! Or maybe your shopping will be done online from the comfort of your couch. Either way, this is a great recipe to try out and help use up some turkey and cranberry sauce.
