Tired of leftovers? When they are all gone. I deliberately cook enough to have some leftovers, but not too many meals worth. We don't have a massive number of dishes for our Thanksgiving dinner.



A lot of the turkey is made into turkey enchiladas and frozen and they will be eaten over the next six months or so. There will be enough turkey for a couple of days of turkey sourdough sandwiches.

Do I like Thanksgiving leftovers? Absolutely.

Did I like it when my MIL would prepare a 24# turkey for FOUR people and serve leftovers for every lunch and dinner for FIVE days? HELL NO!

I know the need to make enough food so that you run out of nothing on Thanksgiving. On the other hand, I have no interest in more than one day of leftovers. Honestly, I do NOT like turkey all that much, especially when the person overcooks it every year. Also, I see no need for meals that include THREE starches (dressing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes) as side dishes.

When we cook for Thanksgiving, we serve either cornish hens or prime rib with a lot fewer but more varied side dishes.

I saw this thread when I came on here to see what ideas people have specifically for leftover stuffing. This year for whatever reason we have a lot of leftover stuffing after the rest is gone. I've Googled ideas and found a few . the most interesting being a twist on eggs benedict, but wondering if any of my fellow C-D posters have some fun and interesting ways to use stuffing when there aren't the other bits to go with it.

By Friday.

We had a large ham on Thanksgiving night. I ate ham croissant for breakfast, went out for lunch, and had leftovers for dinner. I didn't really want it for dinner, but girlfriend was sick and did not want to go out.

That's how I usually am...just about 2 days after TG & I'm ready for something else. Bring on the pizza or Chinese food, ha!
My mother would take thanksgiving turkey slices and Thanksgiving dressing and put it into foil packets and freeze them. And in February she’d pop them in the oven and make some mashed potatoes and some gravy and we get to experience Thanksgiving all over again. Her tagline was “this will taste good in February“ and she was always right.

The turkey was always big enough that we had leftovers not quite 24 hours afterwards. We always ate rather early and then would have late turkey sandwiches. And then the next day may be a little more turkey sandwiches and then she’d pack it up and start soup with the bones.

We love leftovers! Husb finished the last of the smoked turkey and had leftover sides. I try to NOT cook a huge amount so we don't get tired of what's left.

I can easily eat the leftovers until they've gotten too old to eat if there are any left, especially turkey and stuffing.

Never.

Because we freeze most of 'em.
