Is there anything better than Thanksgiving leftovers? Before we even pop that turkey in the oven, we are plotting all the deliciousness we can concoct with the leftovers. Turkey sandwiches, open-faced turkey sandwiches, and more turkey sandwiches… hey! Wait a minute! We love turkey but it is easy to tire of those sandwiches after a few days. And what about those other leftovers?
If you are tired of eating mashed potatoes and stuffing for days (and weeks!) after Thanksgiving, here are some new ways to dress up those Thanksgiving staples and breathe new delicious life into leftovers you will want gobble right up.

3. Add a cranberry swirl
4. Make everything more savory with that gravy
Add it to mac and cheese, which works great if you actually made mac and cheese for the big feast and have it leftover. It will totally liven it up. Oh, and if you have fries, try dipping them into the gravy. Now that’s heaven!
5. And finally, the turkey
Fry them up and serve for an Asian twist. Another great thing you can do is make turkey soup, or even use the remnants of the turkey to create a bone broth. Just dump all the odds and ends into the crockpot and let it do all the work for you. You can freeze it for later, use for making soups, stews, or add more depth to any dish.
Do not forget that if you really just want to go out to eat or just feel like ordering a pizza, wrapping up those leftovers and freezing them will come in handy when you want an easy meal in a few more weeks. What will you do with your leftovers?
