Thanksgiving Leftover Solutions

The big dinner is over yet you are still left with enough dinner to feed another army.  That’s the case if you host, but chances are even if you are a guest you’re being sent home with some Thanksgiving left overs, and here are some of my favorite things to do with them.

You know that saying, ‘one mans trash is another mans treasure’?  This is how I feel about thanksgiving leftovers.  Give me the turkey scraps, stuffing, potatoes (regular and sweet) and of course the gravy, plus if you have any extra rolls toss those babies in the mix too.  It’s my favorite part of the holiday.  I love taking all the trimmings from dinner, putting them on a big roll and eating a nice big thanksgiving sandwich.  It’s known as a gobbler in some place, but it is damn good.

There are some other easy solutions so that all that extra food doesn’t go to waste on you.  You could always take the remnants of dinner, put them in a pot and boil them down for a kick ass turkey soup.  It use to be one of my favorite leftovers, but I think I over did it.  Depending on how big a turkey you used, you could get gallons of soup out of it and you’re set through those cold winter months.

A few other cool ideas would be a traditional turkey sandwich.  You could also do open face hot turkey sandwiches, turkey pot pies or even chop that bird up into a big pot of turkey chili.  Do the chili and your already set for football on Sunday.  There are so many things you can do with thanksgiving leftovers, it’s crazy.  None of this great food should go to waste.

If you are looking for some cool ideas, Food Network has a whole page dedicated to Thanksgiving recipes for your leftovers.
