Thanksgiving dinner may be over, but the leftovers are still crowding your fridge. This list features dishes that are arguably as delicious as the main event!
Thanksgiving Leftover Shepherd’s Pie
Make the most of your holiday Monday by not spending it in the kitchen. Use up every bit of your leftovers, from turkey and gravy to veggies and dressing. An easy, warming comfort meal that’s very little fuss and could be put together the night before.

Hot Turkey Grilled Cheese Sandwich
Nova Scotia food star Eat with Jessie blew our minds last Thanksgiving by releasing this take on an open face hot turkey sandwich, where your usual leftover turkey is served up on top of a grilled cheese sandwich and finished off with cranberry sauce and peas.

Cheesy Leftover Mashed Potato Waffles
Delicious for breakfast or lunch, and we’d argue that these could make their way into a hot turkey sandwich too.
