Ideas for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Food is always in abundance at Thanksgiving. Everyone enjoys the meal. No matter how many people or how much food there are always leftovers. We worry if we will be throwing that delicious food away because you can only take so much. There are many different things you can do with those leftovers to ensure you get every single bite.

What to Do with All Those Thanksgiving Leftovers

Start with your guests. Be sure to have containers for everyone to take some home. A lot of your guests wonít be able to have that turkey sandwich tomorrow or a delicious piece of pie before bed so hand those leftovers out.

You can always freeze leftovers. Things such as turkey, gravy, casseroles and even pies can be frozen to enjoy later. Be sure to use freezer bags or containers. Mark the food so you will remember when you placed in the freezer. If it stays too long it could end up freezer burnt.

There are also many ways you can use leftovers in cooking. Turkey is great mixed in with a casserole, a potpie or why not try some turkey Manhattans. Use the mashed potatoes to make potato pancakes. The list goes on and on. Look at cookbooks of your own or at the library to find recipes. Get on your computer and see what you can find for Thanksgiving leftovers. There are many sites on the Internet that have recipes and quite a few will have recipes just for leftovers. Better yet make your own recipes. A little of this and a little of that usually turns out pretty good.

Leftovers donít have to go in the trash. They can be eaten for days on end or used to make other yummy recipes. If none of these ideas are for you, make up plates to give to elderly people in your neighborhood or take the leftovers to the local soup kitchen. Remember itís a time for being thankful and a time for giving so give yourself a break and donít sweat the leftovers.
