21 recipes that will put your Thanksgiving leftovers to good use

Laura Beam

There's only one thing better than a Thanksgiving feast: the leftovers. We all look forward to foraging through the fridge (sometimes in the middle of the night) for an extra serving of turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing after the holiday. Eating pumpkin pie for breakfast is encouraged. Basically, anything goes.

But while Thanksgiving leftovers are brilliant all on their own, it's even more fun to repurpose leftovers into something entirely new that will last you the whole week long. Make use of everything—the caramelized brown bits at the bottom of your stuffing dish, those gorgeous roasted vegetables, and the remains of the turkey. No matter what you have lying around, we have recipes to make Thanksgiving last as long as you want. Check them out in the slideshow above!
