First of all, Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone enjoys this day full of fun, family, gratitude, and food. Every Thanksgiving, my family—well mostly my mom—makes a dinner probably large enough to feed 12 people. There are only 5 of us! So that means massive amounts of leftovers! Although traditional Thanksgiving dishes are great today, and maybe tomorrow, and maybe the next day, they can get old. This year, I’ve decided to take this matter of leftovers into my own hands. Why not make something new out of something old, right? I’ve searched and found some of the best and easiest Thanksgiving leftover recipes. Here are my top 5 leftover recipes.
