Looking for recipe ideas for your Thanksgiving leftovers? Here are 15 healthy Thanksgiving leftover recipes to help you use up that turkey, stuffing, potatoes and cranberry sauce! More than just soups and sandwiches.
If I’m being honest, my favorite part of holiday cooking is the list of Thanksgiving leftover recipes that we cook after feast day.
We always cook a big turkey even when it’s just the four of us. Our go-to roast turkey recipe produces the juiciest herb-flavored meat, which is ideal for stirring into soups or piling on sandwiches.
At the top of the list is the always-requested turkey corn chowder, which is a hit with a ton of readers, too. I love getting your comments on that chowder after Thanksgiving! But that’s not all – be sure to scroll down for more fantastic ideas.
