Most people can agree that there’s nothing wrong with having Thanksgiving leftovers. Days after the big holiday, the extra stuffing and mashed potatoes you have in the fridge will still taste just as delicious after a quick zap in the microwave. The Cook editors at The Daily Meal love Thanksgiving leftovers so much, we even wrote a sandwich recipe based around them.
But while it’s nice to have some turkey and gravy left over in the days following Thanksgiving, what are you going to do with all of those cans of cranberry sauce? You know what we’re referring to — no matter how many times you’ve bought cranberry sauce before, you always seem to grab one or two extra cans than you need, and you’re left struggling to find space for them in your cabinets after the holiday has passed.
To help you out of this bind, our friends at the food-centric YouTube channel HUNGRY gave us some delicious recipes that will make those extra cans of cranberry sauce not seem so bad after all. Having people over for the game on Sunday? Make cranberry sweet chile wings from The Brothers Green, or if you’re looking to trim down after the big-eating holiday, try a light grilled haloumi salad with cranberry dressing. For those getting ready for December’s holiday parties, chef Art Smith’s cranberry monkey bread is a fun and delicious hostess gift to give this year. No matter what you’re in the mood for, these recipes make sure those cranberries won’t be left in your pantry to collect dust this year.
