Tired of the predictable leftover turkey sandwich? No worries! Put that idea aside and check out these easy recipes that put your leftovers to great use and past just putting them in between two bread slices.

1. Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Pizza


Everyone’s favorite topped with BBQ flavor turkey, yum!

 2. Thanksgving Shepherd’s Pie with Stuffing Crust


I think the stuffing crust is a stroke of genius in this recipe. Imagine all that savory goodness in every bite!

3. Turkey Chili


Feed your family roasted turkey on Thanksgiving Thursday and turkey chili on Football Sunday. What a great idea!

4. Turkey Cranberry Quesadilla


This recipe calls for munster cheese but I think I personally would prefer a sharp cheddar.

Replace sweet & sour dipping sauce sauce with this tangy tart cranberry one, yum!

6. Thanksgiving Empanadas


As a variation, you could just buy Goya empanada disks and fry them instead of baking them.

7. Turkey Fritatta


Fritatta is my absolute go-to quick dinner meal, and I must really love cheddar because I would use cheddar instead of mozzarella in this recipe.

8. Turkey Thai Curry


Turkey has a stronger flavor than chicken, but I think red curry paste has what it takes to pull this recipe off.

This sounds weird right? Well, take a leap of faith and try it because there are plenty comments raving about this recipe.

This lasagna recipe can fit all of your thanksgiving leftovers.
