There are so many reasons we can’t wait for Thanksgiving. We get to spend time with the ones we love, eat a delicious Thanksgiving menu, and reflect on all the reasons we have to be thankful. Yes, it’s glorious to put up all the Thanksgiving decorations and watch the carving of the turkey. But some of the highest holiday points are awarded to the day after Thanksgiving. We aren’t talking about Black Friday; we mean the most delicious dishes of all: the leftovers.
Thanksgiving leftovers can easily go far beyond the Thanksgiving turkey sandwich (though, that’s not a bad meal either). Turkey leftover recipes allow you to relive the magic of the holiday over and over again, and can be incorporated creatively in breakfast, lunch, and dinner dishes throughout the following week. Don’t believe us? Prepare to be inspired by these tempting turkey leftover recipes.
A classic turkey sandwich is a delicious way to use up leftover turkey and cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving.
