To be honest, many of us look forward to Thanksgiving leftovers more than the holiday itself. The cozy weekend after Turkey Day is a chance to snack on all your favorites, and if you do it right, your Black Friday bites may outshine the original spread. So while you can certainly just heat up a rerun plate of roasted turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole (and all your other Thanksgiving sides), we’re on Team Transformation. Try a few of these Thanksgiving leftovers recipes and you’ll see why. This list isn’t just leftover turkey sandwiches—though we have a lot of ideas for those. Below, you’ll find crispy potato croquettes, cranberry cocktails, great ways to use up leftover stuffing, and dinners that satisfy the urgent need for crunchy, fresh vegetables.
