Ideas for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Turn leftover shredded turkey into easy turkey and cheese enchiladas.

Thanksgiving is a pretty glorious holiday for anyone who loves food - not just because of Thursday's huge feast, but because of the leftovers that last well into the weekend. Sure, you can simply pop leftover turkey, stuffing, and other sides into the microwave, but there are plenty of more creative things  you can do to makeover Thanksgiving extras. And what about those random ingredients that never made it onto your table, like that half bunch of celery that's sitting in your fridge with no apparent use? These recipes and ideas will help you get the most out of the food you so carefully planned, shopped for, and cooked this Thanksgiving.

Recipes for Thanksgiving Leftovers:
- Turkey & Cheese Enchiladas
- Mexican Turkey Soup
- Turkey Noodle Soup (Including Recipe for Homemade Turkey Stock)

Want More Ideas?
Add leftover turkey and roasted vegetables into a quick and easy fried rice.
Scatter leftover vegetables into a skillet, crack a few eggs on top, and add a dash of cream for baked eggs.
And perhaps the most obvious solution: make a sandwich. I like making a panini of sliced turkey and leftover brie from the cheese plate for a riff on this sandwich.
