This roundup of 21 easy but creative leftover turkey recipes will help you make the most of the lingering bites of Thanksgiving.
Ahhh, it’s the most wonderful time of year. Thanksgiving is over and even though next day leftover turkey sandwiches with all the fixins’ are a gift from the gods, there’s only so many of them we can manage to shovel down our gullets. That’s why we’re determined to leverage our leftovers as best we can, in as many different ways as possible.
Every Thanksgiving, I make it a point to cook an extra turkey breast just to be sure I have plenty for leftovers. From soups and curries, to pot pies and casseroles, and even pop tarts (yes, pop tarts), these 21 delicious ways to enjoy your leftover T-Day bird are the stuff tryptophan dreams are made of.
