{recipes} Thanksgiving Leftover Recipe Extravaganza!

November 26, 2010

cranberry mustard

The big day is over.

I’m still full.

But (what’s the deal with this?) I still want more. As long as all that food is in the house, I want it.

I can bellyache over my conflicted feelings or I can just bellyache. From all the food that I’ll continue to eat this weekend. I choose the latter.


If you’re with me, let’s talk leftovers. You can go the straightforward route and make another traditional turkey day plate, or you can put a new twist on your leftovers and try these recipes.

Cranberry Mustard : Want a more traditional post-Thanksgiving turkey sammy? Spice up your leftover cranberry sauce with mustard for a delicious condiment. You can also use this as a glaze for a pork loin later this week! (pictured above)

Turkey Picadillo: This comes together in 30 minutes or less with a few basic crisper ingredients, spices, olives and raisins. Steam some rice and dinner’s done, with global flair!

Turkey Paprikash: How can you go wrong when you combine butter, paprika, sour cream and noodles? You can’t. Toss cubes of roasted turkey with paprika and saute until brown in spots. Pick up the rest of the recipe from there.

  1. I love the mustard-cranberry idea. YUM! Too bad we were at relatives’ house for Thanksgiving and I have no leftovers. Boo. 🙁

    maryea you can have some of our turkey.

    i think it’s the picadillo for me, that’s really unique. who knew? although i see your point about the paprikash, though, nothing wrong with that.

    i have come to you in desparation, one hungry mama, as the turkey has not gone bad yet and i think i can make one more meal out of it without killing the whole family. thanks for the help.
