Still Using Leftovers!?

Make yourself a bowl of turkey stuffing soup!

Fill a bowl about half way with warmed leftover stuffing.


Pour some piping hot (preferably home made to use more leftovers) turkey noodle soup over stuffing!



The broth plumps up the bread in the stuffing and makes this a fluffy and satisfying meal.

Better Than Yesterday

While turkey is good on Thanksgiving, I much prefer it as a leftover.  Turkey salad to be exact.  And seeing that we’re four days out from turkey day, it’s about time for just that.


Plus, I can’t get enough of my Pequa Vally Farm maple yogurt (made in Ronks, PA, but sadly does not have a website).  It’s pure sweet, tangy, and creamy deliciousness.

So of course I combined it with turkey.  I mean really, it’s the obvious thing to do!  Smile with tongue out

And I plopped it all on a potato stuffing “pancake” that was heated on a cast iron skillet.  Really people, what else would I do?


It’s the ultimate pile of leftovers, topped with tomato and lettuce, and eaten as an open face sandwich.


It’s got everything you could want in a meal.  A warm soft base.  A cool crunchy top.  A burst of flavor in the middle.


Don’t believe me?  Oh you just try it!

Maple Cranberry Turkey Salad

  • 3 cups turkey, chopped
  • 4 heaping tablespoons maple yogurt
          • (I can’t vouch for anything, but Pequa)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons mayo
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (to pump the maple flavor up!)
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • grinds of salt and pepper to your taste


Eat it on crackers, a salad, a sandwich, or just right out of the bowl.  When you love this, I promise I won’t say…I told ya’ so! Open-mouthed smile

What’s your favorite way to used leftovers?
