What to Do with Thanksgiving Leftovers

Leftover turkey, leftover potatoes, leftover pie. It's all there. But hey, that's part of the fun, right?

So what is there to do with it before that turkey taste gets old?

    Considering my family has an entire turkey left over from Thanksgiving, this is great! I plan on trying to make the turkey bolognese.

    Thank you for this. I tried the Turkey and Corn Quesadilla with Guac and it was delish. The best part, it tasted like a completely different dish and nothing like the TGD feast.

  • My fav thing to do with just about any leftover is throw into a risotto!
