The fridge is full of leftovers – turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing – and it’s time to whip up some of my best Thanksgiving leftover recipes.
My Best Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes...5 fantastic ways to use up those leftovers! | cookincanuck.com #turkey

Thanksgiving in the United States is only a day away, and my family and I can’t wait to dig into some of our favorite holiday recipes. We’re heading to our friends’ house for a feast, and they are going to be cooking our favorite Roasted Turkey with Herb Butter & Roasted Shallots, mashed potatoes and desserts, while I whip up my dad’s famous stuffing, the best gravy ever, my mother-in-law’s crockpot applesauce and some homemade cranberry sauce.

But when all is said and done, and Friday rolls around, all I can think of is leftovers. I’m that person who can’t stop picking at the stuffing every time I pass by the fridge! From soups to sandwiches, I’ve pulled together my favorite recipes using Thanksgiving leftovers.
