8 Simple Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

I love the Thanksgiving meal! From the first Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims all the way to our more modern take on it, Thanksgiving has me smitten. The tradition of enjoying friends and family as we count our blessings over some deliciousness is the perfect gathering. In fact, I love our Thanksgiving fodder so much that I secretly wish our guests won’t devour everything so that we can have it for a few more meals. (Shhh, don’t tell anyone I said that.)

Looking for what to do with all your Thanksgiving dinner leftovers?  These ideas will have you set for days:

I wish I would have thought of this before.  I personally love cranberry sauce, but we always have tons leftover. (I like to think it’s because my turkey is so juicy and moist.)
