Thanksgiving Leftovers – The Ultimate Turkey Leftovers Guide

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Are you with me that the leftovers are better than the meal? Here's some inspiration!

Reposted for 2016: I hope you’ve had a great Thanksgiving and if you’re like me, you’re looking at the last of the leftovers thinking you really need to do something about them, now! I already have a post, my 12 Days of Turkey, with links to some of my favorite leftover Turkey dishes, but here’s your visual companion to it plus a few more! Each one better than the original turkey, if you ask me! 🙂

Of course, any recipe made with Chicken can be made just as easily with Turkey. I apologize, I haven’t figured out how to link the photos back to the original post, but click on any photo in the gallery, below, and you’ll be able to see & click on the url’s underneath the photo.

Many are on the 12 Days of Turkey post and others are sprinkled around my menu under casseroles, sandwiches, salads & soups.

If you’re looking for fabulously frugal recipes for your leftover ham, look no further than my 12 Days of Ham!


Today I’ll be sharing this recipe at our very own Throwback Thursday Link Party. You might want to bookmark this special two week extravaganza – they’re all lots of links to both Thanksgiving & Thanksgiving leftovers, Thanksgiving Crafts & Holiday Decorating.

I’ll also be sharing at Fiesta Friday, hosted this week by Julianna @ Foodie On Board and Hilda @ Along The Grapevine, and Saucy Saturdays. Saucy Saturdays is hosted by four incredible bloggers: Dina, Jennifer, Christine & Swayum.

    • lol! I need a better camera and more time to take pictures…but I can tell a difference in the pics. Like here’s where I learned to filter, here’s where I figured out light, here’s where I learned how to edit for white value, lol!!

    • Hi, and thanks for stopping by! I appreciate the lovely comment and feel bad you have no turkey there, but of course, you make up for it with a marvelous food culture of your own!

      In the twin cities (Minneapolis/St Paul, Minnesota) we have a good population of people with Swedish descent and the American Swedish Institute http://www.asimn.org/ so I have sampled various Swedish food over the years!

  1. Your leftover recipes look amazing! I see why you say they are better than the original turkey. I sent the last of the leftovers with my husband for lunch today, but I think he would rather have had them in the form of one of these recipes! 🙂 I do have a turkey in the freezer, though, so will keep them in mind.

    • Thanks, Shari – we have another stashed away, too! Who knows, maybe I’ll be adding yet another one!

      And since you’re from AZ, one of my favorite things is a turkey green chili but I’ve never worked out a recipe with measurements for it…

    • Thanks! We’re having scalloped potatoes tonight and my Dad just had a huge slice of the Turkey B’Steeya – he’s watching the basketball game. He’s going to be ready for a steak, hamburger or chili soon! 🙂
