You have one more thing to be thankful for this year: leftovers. While the meal plan for Thanksgiving Day is set in stone for most of us (turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy), the day after Thanksgiving is when you can unleash your creativity in the kitchen.sandwiches, layered with a taste of every dish from the buffet are a must, and hearty soups made with homemade stock, pulled turkey, and fresh herbs will surely hit the spot.
Never has the classic French Croque Madame tasted as American as it does made with your next-day Thanksgiving turkey. If that isn’t up your alley, you can make a Turkey and Wild Rice Soup with your leftover wild rice stuffing.
Additionally, prepare for holiday shopping by fueling up with your favorite Thanksgiving leftovers reinvented.
