The amazing Thanksgiving holiday is now over, and we celebrated it the best way: with our caring family and loved ones, beautiful decorations, happy and thankful thoughts and, of course, with delicious turkey and side dishes. If you’re like most families, you probably now have a lot of leftovers and no idea what to do with them, besides reheating it. To shake things up a bit, try these amazing recipes below, that are so incredibly delicious, I bet you’ll wish you had more leftovers to try them all!
Thanksgiving Leftovers Crescent Ring
This amazing dish will transform all those Thanksgiving leftovers into an incredible dish that all the family will love! In a large round pan, arrange crescent rolls in a circle, overlapping each other, creating a flower shape. Place your Thanksgiving leftovers around the middle of the dough ring and top with shredded cheese. Fold in the ends of the dough, tuck under, and then bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until browned. You can use this recipe for any kind of leftovers you have, not just Thanksgiving, but also for taco meat, Sloppy Joes, or even leftover spaghetti. Very versatile!
Leftovers Stuffed Sandwich Rolls
Sandwich is always a popular choice with leftovers, and this recipe takes the idea to a whole new level. Slice a sandwich roll or mini baguette halfway through, but not all the way (so you can avoid a messy meal) and hollow it out by scraping the insides. Start filling the bread with mashed potatoes and stuffing on the bottom, turkey in the middle and then add the cranberry sauce and gravy on the top. Finish by topping it with cheese and place them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, until the cheese is melted and leftovers are heated through. Enjoy!
