Now that the feast is over, are you struggling with what to do with the leftovers? I’ve got you covered with this list of healthy Thanksgiving leftover recipes.
After plenty of feasting (pulling out the elasticized pants, thank you very much), this weekend will be dedicated to healthy Thanksgiving leftover recipes and several bouts of exercise (walks, walks and more walks). My light turkey corn chowder will be the first thing on the agenda, followed by baked tortellini with turkey and butternut squash and stuffing-filled sandwiches. To tell you the truth, I’d take the leftover-inspired meals over the big feast any time!
What do you have left in your fridge? Turkey? Stuffing? Mashed potatoes? Cranberry sauce? They’re all covered in these healthy Thanksgiving leftovers recipes. Appetizer, side dishes, entrees – it’s all here.
If you’re looking for soup recipes, the turkey corn chowder and turkey mulligatawny soup are hits with my family every single time. In fact, I make these soups throughout the year, using rotisserie chicken from the store, because my family voted that those recipes shouldn’t be relegated to the holidays.
But don’t worry – the mashed potatoes and stuffing aren’t left behind! Scroll down for a couple of fun Thanksgiving leftover recipes that feature those ingredients. And let’s throw in one more for good measure because these Baked Mashed Potato Bites are too good not to mention.
Let’s dive in to some of my favorites!
