Even though we go to my SIL's for T-day - I make my own dinner on Friday so I have plenty of yummy leftovers.

This morning I add a Thanksgiving eggs benedict.

Leftover biscuit toasted in the oven, layer of stuffing, slice of deli ham, poached egg topped off with gravy,  Absolutley delicious

Thanksgiving pie! Pie crust on bottom, layer shredded turkey, gravy, veggies, top with leftover mashed potatoes like a shepherd's pie, bake until hot. Serve with cranberry sauce on the side. :-)

Later today, I will be experimenting with turning leftover sweet potatoes into soup.  This may be tricky, as the recipe seems to assume that one has 4 cups of plain mashed sweet potatoes, when, in fact, my leftover sweet potatoes contain brown sugar, pecans, and bourbon.  I'm hoping for a sweet/savory/creamy sort of thing, but am cutting the recipe down to a 1 or 2 serving size.

I've done something similar, I used chicken broth to thin instead of milks and added some chipotle peppers to counteract the sweet.  I love soup made with squash or sweet potatoes.

I make curry with turkey - the recipe got submitted to the recipe folder.  In fact, Ambrosia Hino and I made some for lunch today - there were no leftovers.....

Haven't tried it yet but will tomorrow-turkey divan.

Layer veggies in a casserole pan (I'm using broccoli). Add a layer of turkey. Cover will cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup. Cover with shredded parmesan. Bake until heated through.

Seems simple and easy, my favorite kind of recipe!

What have you got? Is it food? Is it for me? I want it whatever it is!

Turkey pot pie.  My Mom would mix up left over turkey and gravy, add some cooked carrots and peas, some celery, etc. and then make a pie using her flaky pie crust.  The whole thing would be baked until the crust was golden brown.  Served with a salad and homemade bread.  Yum!

Take some mashed potatoes and re-mash them with a little more milk and a little more butter, maybe some parmesan cheese, maybe some chives then drop dollops onto a cookie sheet and broil until golden brown.

I saw this on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network and tried it at home....delish!  Toast two slices of bread.  In the meantime, take the leftover stuffing and form it into a patty.  Fry this in a skillet next to some leftover turkey.  Spread some cranberry sauce on the bread and layer on the turkey and stuffing patty.  Add a nice dollop of rewarmed gravy and serve it up.  Yummy, yummy!   ;D

Made a diced ham and turkey omelet with chopped mushrooms and onions. Leftover gravy was on the side to dip.

The candied yams/sweet potatoes contributed this year were REALLY sweet, and good.

I used the leftovers for Lukas and me by warming a bowl of the casserole, topping with whipped cream, and serving as a dessert. I think I actually like them better that way.
