Here at Peach Valley, we love sharing our fresh, flavorful ideas for leftover magic after your Thanksgiving feast! Here are some recent creations you might like to try at home.
From hearty sandwiches to warm, comforting soups, there are endless ways to use leftover Thanksgiving turkey - including tacos! You can use turkey in the same way that you would use its poultry counterpart, chicken, in your favorite taco recipe - or modify it for a fun, harvest touch, by serving turkey alongside cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and stuffing served up in taco form. (Because, doesn't everything taste better in a taco or tortilla?)
Pumpkin pie brûlée
Just like the velvety foundation of a creme brûlée, pumpkin pie is a custard dessert - so why not give your leftover pie the mini torch treatment (or pop it under a broiler) and create pumpkin pie brûlée to breathe new life into your Thanksgiving dessert? Michael Chiarello from Food Network recommends scooping your pumpkin pie filling into small ramekins, adding sugar to the surface and caramelizing the crust for a sweet, textured finish.
Fried mashed potatoes
You can never have too much mashed potatoes! But if you miraculously find yourself with some extra taters, put them in your fridge and let them cool before combining with egg, flour and your seasonings of choice. Fry your mixture in a small amount of vegetable oil on your stove, and voila! A creamy interior, crisp crust and delicious new spin on last night's mashed potatoes.
Cranberry brie bites
If you have some leftover cranberry sauce on hand, pair it with brie and pastry dough for a delicious sweet treat.
Apple pie cinnamon rolls
Leftover filling for your apple pie can be turned into a delectable dessert or sweet breakfast treat on Black Friday and beyond! Simply mix the prepared apples into your go-to cinnamon roll recipe or your favorite canned rolls, and watch (and smell) as your home is transformed by the sweet, welcoming aroma of apple-y cinnamon goodness.
