Now that Thanksgiving is over, you’re probably wondering what to do with all the leftovers. If you’re tired of feeling obligated to relive the same meal for the week following the big feast, you might consider using the leftovers in a fun new dish! This week’s Liv Avenida Blog is serving you some of our favorites from Food Network’s list of best Thanksgiving leftover recipes.

Grilled Turkey, Brie, and Apple Butter Sandwich with Arugula

While you may be used to leftover turkey sandwiches after Thanksgiving, we’re sure you have never had one quite like this. Adding flavors to your sandwich that weren’t a part of your dinner like soft brie cheese and spicy Arugula leaf will keep things tasting new and fresh. For these sandwiches, you will need rye bread, unsalted butter, apple butter, turkey, brie cheese, and arugula.

Eggs in Purgatory

Since microwaved mashed potatoes never taste quite as good as the first time around, try using them in a different way this year. These potato pancakes, atop a warmed marinara sauce, topped with a fried egg, and sprinkled with grated parmesan, are sure to get you excited about leftovers again.

Vegetable Samosas

Put your leftover green beans to good use by adding them to these vegetable samosas! Using leftover mashed potatoes, leftover cook vegetables, frozen peas, curry powder, cilantro, mint, ginger, salt, cayenne pepper, and puff pastry, turn what was left of your feast into delicious triangular dinner pastries! You may even try mixing yogurt with cranberry sauce for a delicious dipping sauce.

Day-After Dip

Did your Thanksgiving dinner leave you feeling stuffed, even the next day? Make this simple snack using your leftover sweet potatoes. Put them in a food processor with white beans, olive oil, grated parmesan, salt, and pepper, and top with toasted nuts. If you place this dip next to crackers, it is sure to be gobbled up quickly!

Waffled Leftover Thanksgiving Brunch

Brunch is the perfect time for a post-Thanksgiving meal. Transform leftover stuffing into crispy waffles by adding eggs and chopped parsley! Serve these waffles next to a slice of turkey and some warm gravy.

Try these dishes and more in your Chandler, AZ apartment this year and your Thanksgiving leftovers will be gone before you know it! Did you find another favorite recipe from Food Network’s list? Share what made in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
