Thanksgiving Leftovers

I love thanksgiving so much that I often cook way more than I could ever eat.  So I usually end up make a  variety of leftovers that utilize the ingredients.  Here are my favorite ideas.

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.

BBQ Chicken Potato Skins

BBQ Chicken Potato Skins

I always seem to bbq an extra chicken breast every time that I grill.  I have no idea why there is an extra one, but there is always an extra.  So I decided to come up with a great way to use the leftovers.  On a side note, this use of bbq chicken leftovers is so good, I actually grill chicken to make it.  Yep, it is chicken smothered in bbq sauce and layered with bacon and cheese.  Oh, I forgot the best part.  It is all in a potato bowl.  How awesome does that sound?
