I know that Thanksgiving hasn't even happened yet, but it is a great time to collect a few recipes to use all of the Thanksgiving leftovers. My family loves cold turkey sandwiches, but I can't stand them (cold meat-blah!) and always am on the look out for new recipes to use the delicious holiday leftovers. I have picked a few of my favorites and reader favorites to share with you. Some use chicken, but turkey can easily be substituted. I usually have some leftover pumpkin and always make the error of grabbing an extra sweet potato that I didn't need so I included a few recipes for those leftovers as well.
I am so excited for tomorrow. My Dad and I are doing the cooking and we will have a lot of family in town. We are planning the following for our menu:
Simple Roasted Turkey and Gravy
Mushroom, Onion and White Wine Stuffing
Vanilla Maple Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallow Topping
Orange Scented Cranberries
Homemade Green Bean Casserole
Homemade 3 Cheese Mac and Cheese
Red Wine Mushrooms
Cheese Beans (a tradition for Ron's family!)
Superfood Green Salad (Thank you Costco!)
Pecan Pie, Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie
I am already drooling. I am responsible for making everything but the turkey, stuffing, salad, rolls and pies....I have my work cut out for me and the prep will start tonight!
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday and here is the round-up:
