Thanksgiving Leftovers: 

6 Ways to Recycle and Reinvent

  • Turkey Tacos: Cut up turkey, lettuce, tomato, cheese. Add salsa. You may add taco seasoning to the turkey for a great flavor.

  • Pulled Turkey Sandwich with Cran-BQ sauce:  Shred turkey and add to a toasted bun. Mix cranberry sauce with your favorite BBQ sauce. Top with Cran-BQ sauce and coleslaw.

  • Mashed Potato and Stuffing Croquettes: Mix equal parts mash potatoes and stuffing. As you shape into patties, dust with flour on both sides. Sauté on both sides in oil or butter until golden.

  • Corn Casserole: Add 2 cups leftover corn to a corn bread mix. Follow directions.

  • Broccoli Soup:  Add 1 cup mashed potatoes, leftover broccoli and enough broth to cover. Purée in a blender or with an immerser until smooth.  Add more broth to achieve consistency you wish. Heat until warm.

  • Sweet Potato Pancakes:  Add 1-1½ sweet potatoes, 1 egg, 1 cup flour,  ¾ cup milk or water, 1 teaspoon baking powder, ¼ teaspoon salt. Mix together, adding more liquid if needed to reach proper pancake consistency.  Fry in pan with butter or oil, flipping once, until golden on both sides.
