31 Delicious Ways to Enjoy Thanksgiving Leftovers


Thanksgiving is one of my favorite days of the year, but a close second — foodwise — would have to be the long weekend following turkey day. Suddenly my pathetic fridge looks like a fireworks display of flavors. Of course I’ve got a soft spot for the ol’ turkey sandwich with a side of grandma’s potato salad, but the possibilities are endless.

My sister always makes way too much cranberry sauce which means there’ll be plenty leftover for a quesadilla, cranberry lime margaritas, and even cranberry chocolate croissant french toast. You can make leftover mashed potatoes the star of the show, or give the spotlight to the stuffing. There are so many options — from breakfast and lunch to dinner and dessert. We’ve got some of the best Thanksgiving leftovers ideas out there.
