Choose a Holiday!
Thanksgiving is such a phenomenal holiday, just a day to spend with friends and family, stuffing yourself full of incredible food and being thankful for all that you have. But when the holiday is over and there’s a half a turkey left the idea of turkey sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner for another week loses its appeal pretty quickly. To remedy this we’ve scoured the web to find some of the best thanksgiving turkey leftover recipes that may leave you craving them more than the actual Thanksgiving Day spread.
This is one of our favorite leftover turkey recipes because it perfectly disguises the turkey with spicy green chili yet and it’s better for you than its beef alternative. The one twist, this receipt calls for uncooked turkey to sit in a slow cooker, to use leftover turkey you combine the other ingredients and let sit in the slow cooker for 3-4 hours and then add the pre-cooked turkey and let it cook for about another hour before serving.
Potpies are an all time hearty favorite, perfect for when the weather is starting to turn cold. On the plus side, making a potpie out of your leftover turkey doesn’t disguise the turkey, it complements it with a variety of vegetables that leave you feeling full, satisfied, and like you ate a meal that was good for you.
Why not use another meat to spice up a turkey dish? This combination of chorizo and turkey is perfectly married with other mild ingredients and some that will kick up the heat a little bit. Be prepared, this is one of those recipes that in no way resembles your Thanksgiving feast, but you’ll want to make it every year on the Friday after thanksgiving.
Okay, we realize that most of your leftover turkey will go to sandwiches because they’re quick, easy and delicious. But we recommend mixing it up a little and creating this pistachio turkey sandwich that is better than most you find in your favorite deli.
This recipe title is a mouthful, which seems oddly appropriate. This soup is a wonderful way to use a few of your leftover thanksgiving ingredients and it’ll really stick to your ribs. The surprising combination of flavors is remarkable and I expect that Campbell’s Soup will be replicating this recipe very soon.
