The big meal is over. You think all the dishes are washed and put away. And now, your refrigerator has become a collection of Thanksgiving leftovers. Here are a few suggestions on how to reuse your smorgasbord into different meal ideas so your Thanksgiving goodness doesn’t go to waste!
Pull your turkey into bits and eat a fresh turkey sandwich. You can re-create your thanksgiving meal by using your leftover yams and cranberry sauce as a spread.
Add pulled turkey into a fresh, leafy-green salad. A delicious and healthy alternative, especially if you are feeling guilty from eating a little too much pumpkin pie.
Turkey Noodle Soup
Save your turkey and make a delicious turkey noodle soup. Turkey Soup is a great freezer meal, too. Think about pulling out a delicious turkey noodle soup on a cold winter day, or, when the family is at home with seasonal colds and flu.
Turkey Pot Pie
Reuse your turkey, mashed potatoes and vegetables for turkey potpies. This is another meal that freezes well and is easy to make.
Potatoes for Breakfast
Resue baked potatoes for breakfast. This is perfect with ham or bacon and eggs. Or you could use turkey and create a turkey hash!
