Skinny Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes

Got leftovers from the big day?  I don't know about you, but I always think the idea of Thanksgiving leftovers is waaaay better than the actual leftovers.  Except for the stuffing of course.  It always tastes fine the next day - not quite as good as day one, but pretty acceptable.  

The rest though, meh.  Thanksgiving dinner never tastes quite the same the next day.  So what do you do with all of the leftovers?  No worries!  Here are a few great, and healthier Thanksgiving leftover ideas from around the web...

Did you have any leftovers?

Eat well!


  1. I read this while eating leftovers, although I have been too tired and lazy today to do anything with the leftovers. Will check these out and try again with the leftovers tomorrow. Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Ha ha! I completely hear you - the last thing you usually want to do after Thanksgiving is more creative cooking! I often freeze turkey (and stuffing), and think about it a week or two later when it's new again.
