Eight Delicious Recipes to Repurpose Your Thanksgiving Leftovers - Thanksgiving Leftovers Croque Madame


Thanksgiving dinner and of course Thanksgiving leftovers are what you look forward to all year long. The savory stuffing, the roasted turkey, the cranberry sauce, the side dishes — do I really need to go on… However, the best part is that the leftovers last for days and you can repurpose them, making the cooking feel less like a chore and more fun.

I know there are plenty of you out there whose favorite part of Thanksgiving is the leftovers. Personally, I am much more a fan of the feast itself, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love leftovers too! Like the rest of the world, my family loves those extras, and I always find it very much appreciated if I can send some good food home with guests.

While I do make plenty of turkey sandwiches (another favorite way to use up extra turkey), sometimes when creating a recipe for leftovers, I will keep things simple and do something inspired by chicken noodle soup. Other years I like to have a little fun and create something somewhat different.

Below, I compiled eight recipes that will make you more excited for Thanksgiving leftovers than the actual meal!
