Like so many American’s my eyes are bigger than my stomach. Therefore, I have a ton of leftovers after Thanksgiving. Ok, this might have been done on purpose ?.  Who doesn’t love an open faced hot turkey sandwich.  But there are so many other things that you can do with the leftovers.  Here are my favorite ideas.

How often do you have extra mashed potatoes laying around?  Not sure about you, but I usually only have extra around Thanksgiving. Although that may have to change.  Leftover mashed potatoes plus a little turkey and gravy makes for an amazing Shepard’s Pie.

I love potatoes and I believe that they are the perfect vessel to deliver any food.  Thanksgiving leftovers is no exception.

There is nothing like placing your favorite ingredients into a pie crust and baking it till golden brown.  These were a hit.  Just douse them in the turkey gravy.

With a biscuit crust and all of your favorite ingredients on top, you can not beat this as the ultimate leftover recipe.  I make this whenever I can.

Hopefully these will give you some ideas for your leftovers. If you have any other suggestions let me know in the comments.  I would love to hear what you do with your leftovers.
