Happy Day-After Thanksgiving! If you’re like us, you probably have a fridge full of leftovers from this year’s feast. No problem, we’re here to share all of our favorite way to spice up your turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes for more tasty treats from last night’s eats.
- Leftover Pizza
On your favorite pizza crust, a thin layer of mashed potatoes as the base, top with pulled turkey, stuffing crumbles, sprinkle with shredded mozzarella and cranberry jalapeno salsa. Drizzle with gravy and bake for 20-25 minutes at 425 degrees F. For crispier crust, place directly on the oven rack.
- BBQ Turkey Mac n Cheese
Make your favorite Mac n Cheese (premix or scratch made), top with stuffing. Bake 15-20 minutes then top individual portions with shredded turkey.
- Next Day Soufflé
Cook a package of bacon, set aside to cool and keep the grease. Lightly coat stuffing portions with grease and layer with bacon crumbles in oven-safe casserole dish or pot. Beat eggs (add a dash of milk if desired) then pour over stuffing-bacon layers until even with the top of stuffing layers. Bake at 350 degrees F until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
- Thanksgiving Turkey Enchiladas
In a baking dish, add a thin layer of mashed potatoes. Lightly fry corn tortillas in oil, add shredded turkey and roll before tortillas harden – use caution as tortillas will be hot. Place the rolled tortillas side by side in your baking dish, smother with gravy, leaving the ends exposed, then sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-30 minutes.
- Thanksgiving Turkey Fajitas
Sauté pulled turkey with peppers and onions, serve with your favorite flour tortillas, Buddy’s Cranberry Jalapeno salsa and lime wedges.
- Family Style Sandwiches
On a French baguette or ciabatta loaf layer leftover salad greens, shredded or sliced turkey, stuffing, then drizzle with honey and gravy. Slice into individual portions and serve with extra gravy for dipping. Optional – add Buddy Boy’s Cranberry Jalapeno Salsa.
- Creamy Turkey Potato Soup
Using turkey, chicken, or vegetable stock, make a soup on the stovetop or in your crockpot with pulled turkey and any leftover veggies such as green beans, carrots, and onions. Serve in a bowl over mashed potatoes for a creamy, hearty meal. Optional – add gravy to your soup for a extra Thanksgiving kick!
