Before kids, we got in the habit of just eating a second (and third…and sometimes fourth) Thanksgiving dinner once the big day was over. Complete with leftover turkey and all the trimmings, my husband and I were perfectly content to eat and repeat until every last bite was gone.
Once kids entered the picture, those days went out the window. While kids aren’t so excited to eat the same dinner over and over again, we still have to clean out the fridge post-Thanksgiving. So, we’ve had to get a little creative. Nowadays, we’ll transform our turkey and trimmings into something completely new—and delicious. These simple ideas and recipes for leftover turkey are just as delicious as the main event, and even better, the kids don’t complain about another night of Thanksgiving leftovers.
