It’s the day after Thanksgiving. Bleary-eyed, you scratch your belly and open your fridge to find a half-eaten turkey, a sad-looking mound of day-old mashed potatoes, and a bowl of congealed cranberry sauce. What to do with all these leftovers? With a wave of a wand, SideChef is here to give your cold leftovers a second life by turning them into hearty breakfasts, delicious gourmet sandwiches, Caribbean soups and more!
For a great start to the day, make Turkey, Avocado, Cranberry, and Brie Waffle Melts for breakfast. You’ll be using up not just the turkey leftovers, but also the cranberry sauce and the mashed potatoes! Two turkeys, one stone.
Also known as the ultimate Thanksgiving Leftover Melt, this recipe uses mashed potatoes (in the waffles!!), leftover turkey, cranberry sauce, brie, and some bacon and egg if you are into it.
If you’re feeling peckish and want a quick fix, why not make an Apple Turkey Melt? The apple slices and Gouda give the turkey a fresh makeover.
This simple and delicious sandwich utilizes staple items that, when thrown together, make for a quick dinner on the go, one that is filling and feels a tad bit luxurious to boot!
Or perhaps you’d like to transport yourself somewhere warmer, like the Caribbean? You can add leftover turkey to this rich Caribbean Smoked Turkey Soup. The dasheen, eddoes, okra, and herbs are what make this soup taste so exotic.
This potpie is loaded with goodness and super comforting, so don’t be surprised if you get a case of the sleepies after you’ve done damage on a bowl.
Put those sad spuds in this Sweet and Gold Mashed Potato Pie. If you have any stuffing leftover, you can also throw it in!
