Thanksgiving leftovers are great, but you can eat only so many cold turkey sandwiches. So what to do with all that turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, veggies, yams, and mashed potatoes?
Our own Chef Sara offers these tasty tips that will make you thankful for Turkey Day leftovers.
1. Turkey and Stuffing Strata
Strata is a layered dish typically made with bread, eggs, meat, and cheese, similar to a frittata or casserole. Use your leftover turkey, stuffing, and dinner rolls to make strata for brunch the next day.
2. Turkey, Spinach, and Cranberry Sauce Melt
Spread some cranberry sauce on bread, top it with turkey, spinach, and cheese, then finish it in the toaster oven for a warm, melty lunch. We recommend cheddar, Havarti, or a flavored cheese like dill, garlic, or chive.
3. Mashed Potato Cakes
Use leftover sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes with your favorite potato cake recipe. Pan fry the cakes for a crisp, golden-brown treat, perfect for any meal of the day.
4. Roasted Veggie Hash
We love vegetables here at Green Chef, so we think no Thanksgiving feast is complete without a roasted veggie dish. Brussels sprouts, root vegetables, onions, carrots, and mushrooms can be easily reheated and spruced up with bacon, hot sauce, or an egg on top.
