Thanksgiving has come and gone and once again, the tables and plates were topped almost calamitously high and all across the land bellies swelled with contentment. Unfortunately, even if you send your guests away with leftovers, it really does seem like you're still left with a whole bunch for yourself. Sure, you can make another dinner/lunch plate with the usual servings of turkey, potatoes, cranberry sauce, etc ... but you're probably gonna want some variety eventually.
Thankfully, the basics of any Thanksgiving dinner lend themselves to a lot of repurposing. In this video, you'll find out how to make savory pancakes from leftover mashed potatoes, a delicious cranberry butter which I want to slather on everything and much, much more. So use up those leftovers! It's the tastiest way to avoid food waste.
Another great idea not covered in the video? A sandwich that I've come to love that's known in some parts as a "New Englander:" stuffing, turkey and cranberry sauce, with mayonnaise on a hard roll (plus optional mashed potatoes and cheese). I also like to add some hot sauce too to play off the sweet cranberry sauce. Consider it my holiday gift to you.
