Hope your Thanksgiving was great! We spent the first half with my family watching football and eating herb-roasted turkey breast, stuffing, cauliflower mash, roasted sweet potatoes, crispy green beans and bourbon pumpkin pie, then headed over to my in-laws for Round 2 with a deep-fried turkey, cider-brined pork roast, and even more stuffing, potatoes, sides and desserts.
To say I am full going into today is an understatement.
Chances are, if you hosted the big day yesterday, your fridge is probably loaded with some serious leftovers. But if turkey sandwiches for days aren’t your thing, you might find yourself wondering, what the heck do I do with all those Thanksgiving leftovers?
From using up potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and of course the turkey, I got you covered. Behold:
