When it comes to Thanksgiving, my family’s creed is “The more the merrier!” We’re not just talking about guests here – we mean the food! Turkey Day leftovers, from a classic turkey sandwich to mashed potato fritters, are a big part of our holiday enjoyment.

Do you love reliving the Thanksgiving meal just as much as we do? Or are you dreading the stacks of reusable containers filling your fridge on Thursday night? Either way, there are plenty of ways to enjoy those leftovers without making your plate look like another pass at the buffet table.

Turkey

Turkey can stand in for chicken in a variety of recipes, from your favorite chicken salad to stir-frys. Tuck some shredded meat into cheesy quesadillas for a kid-friendly lunch. Or try these dinner ideas:

Potatoes

Squash

Roasted winter squash can be used in recipes for breakfast to dessert. Cook up some extra to use in these:

This is indeed an irony as to how our eyes get deluded. They have been originated in Philadelphia so these cakes are called Philadelphia Cheese Cakes. While working with these edible sheets make sure to complete doing the printing job in advance and then store them in a zip-loc bag.
