What to Do with your Thanksgiving Leftovers

We know that you have big plans to celebrate Thanksgiving in the best way with the premium selection of free range turkey we have on offer, and we have no doubt you’ll end up with loads of leftovers.

If you thought using leftovers doesn’t equal gourmet meals, then you are in for a pleasant surprise.

After glimpsing these recipes, you may even be looking forward to trying them out more than you  

The recipes you’re about see contain one or more of the leftovers we all end up with after Thanksgiving: turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes.


7 Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

Turkey Casserole

If you’re looking for a simple recipe to use up all of your leftovers, look no further than a good turkey casserole recipe. The best part about this dish is that it’s filling and keeps in the fridge for 3 to 4 days and in the freezer for up to 3 months—meaning you can enjoy the taste of Thanksgiving long after the day is over.   


Mashed Potato Zeppole

Zeppole’s are delightful, bite-sized, doughnut-like fritters that are loved all over the world. Would you believe us if we told you that your leftover mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce can be turned into these delicious doughnuts? You should, because it’s true.


Cranberry Sauce Turnovers

Do you need a little sugar to prepare yourself for the Black Friday shopping expeditions that lie ahead? Put your leftover cranberry sauce from our Thanksgiving Turkey Ready To Cook With Trimmings package to good use by making these sweet, scrumptious, and super easy cranberry sauce turnovers


Gourmet Grilled Cheese

Oozy, gooey and a treat for the taste buds. Pair your leftover turkey with our Brie de Meaux and some cranberry sauce for the most delicious, gourmet version of a grilled cheese sandwich you’ll ever eat.


Turkey Poptarts

Turkey poptarts are a fun and indulgent way to enjoy your leftover turkey, stuffing, potatoes and cranberry sauce. The best part about this recipe is that it’s gluten free, easy to prepare and will be out of the oven in less than 30 minutes.  


Turkey Milanese

Why not veer away from the traditional meats used to make Milanesa, and opt instead to use your leftover turkey and its gravy to make your very own turkey milanese? Salad is typically served with Milanesa, so why not elevate the dish even further by using our premium mustard, olive oil and one of our finest cheeses?   


Potato Puppies

Don’t be fooled into thinking that your leftover mashed potatoes have no purpose. By adding a few extra ingredients, your leftover mashed potatoes are transformed into fantastic fritter-like treats that can be enjoyed on their own or as an accompaniment to a fresh tomato soup.


On top of all the amazing recipes you can make using your Thanksgiving leftovers as your primary ingredient, the option to donate your leftovers to those less fortunate than yourself is always present.  

Whether you decide to donate your leftovers or incorporate them into a whole new dish—you’ll be putting them to good use. if you are looking to add some items, you will find many great products for your recipes in our online grocery store
