Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes That The Whole Family Will Love

I’m currently sitting here writing this blog, dreaming about Thanksgiving dinner. The perfectly roasted turkey, the endless mashed potatoes, the stuffing and rolls, and let’s not forget about dessert. But what’s even better, are the leftovers we’ll all be eating the next day! There’s so much you can do with these leftovers, it’s hard to choose! Here are some creative ways I found to gobble up your leftover turkey and sides.

Leftover Stuffin’ Muffins

This recipe is super easy and is perfect for a morning snack or breakfast!

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Mix together any dry ingredients you want to use in a bowl. (She uses stuffing, turkey and spinach.)
Grease your baking sheet well and put the mix loosely into the baking cups.
Make an egg mixture with eggs, milk, salt and pepper and pour over the dry mixture in the cups.
Bake for 20-25 minutes



Slow Cooker Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Pie Soup

This is a great recipe to have cooking while you’re out and about Black Friday shopping and ready for you after standing outside in the cold!

This is another recipe where you can use whatever ingredients you want, but this recipe uses turkey, potatoes, vegetables and herbs. (Click the link above to see all ingredients used in this recipe!)

Cook together vegetables, turkey, herbs, vegetables and chicken broth in your slow cooker on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
Whisk together flour and heavy whipping cream and pour into slow cooker.
Cook for an additional 30-45 minutes.


Turkey Cranberry Grilled Cheese 

What goes better with soup than grilled cheese?

This one is super easy because all you need is turkey, cranberry sauce and cheese.

Make your sandwich and coat the open facing sides of the bread with olive oil. She makes hers on the grill, but you can definitely make yours on a panini grill or skillet. Make sure not to cook them too long or the bread will burn – should only take about 5 minutes.



Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Pizza

Pizza is always good on a Friday night, so why not make it with leftovers.

Start with pizza dough – you can buy pre-made dough or be fancy and make it yourself!
Put mashed potatoes on top, then turkey and stuffing. Top it off with some cheese and turkey gravy.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 500 degrees.
