Going into Thanksgiving, you were probably thinking that the best thing about celebrating a holiday like this was the fact that you were guaranteed to have leftovers for days. So many days that you could still probably feed an army with what you have left, even after giving away half to family and friends. That said, the week after Thanksgiving means that it’s time for you to get a little creative and rework how you plan on getting rid of all of this extra food. Fear not. We have you covered with a few recipes that’ll help get rid of your leftovers in no time.


1. Turkey Noodle Soup

It’s cold outside, so it only makes sense that you make the most of this weather to create a soup that’ll warm you up a little, right? Right. For this recipe, it doesn’t even matter if you’ve completely demolished all of your turkey, because all you really need is the carcass to make a broth. You can also take a walk on the healthier side by throwing in some gluten-free egg noodles.


2. Turkey and Cranberry Sauce Quesadillas

Raise your hand if you truly believe that turkey and cranberry sauce make one of the best combinations ever. The beauty of this recipe is that it’s ridiculously easy to put together and includes other ingredients that you likely already have in your kitchen.


3. Turkey and Stuffing Muffins

Okay, so it’s not a muffin as much as it is stuffing re-baked in a muffin tin. Still, it’s likely just as delicious when it’s served in the form of one of the most underrated baked goods there is.


4. Turkey Bacon and Egg Breakfast Sandwich

By now you’ve probably already been eating Thanksgiving for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So why not help yourself out a little by dressing up your breakfast into a fancy sandwich made of leftovers?


5. Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

In case you’re not already tired of pumpkin literally being thrown into any food that you can think of, throw your leftover pumpkin pie into some pancake batter and ditch the maple syrup for cranberry sauce. And if you really want to get creative, you can use your pie crust as a garnish. 


6. Thanksgiving Pizza

You should know by now that pizza is a necessity. You should also know by now that, when it comes to making your own pizza, you can get as creative as you want, and that includes topping it off with a few Thanksgiving side dishes.
