After hosting Thanksgiving, no one really wants to slave all day in the kitchen... but people are hungry for Thanksgiving leftovers. When Chef Michael Chiarello told us about his traditional day-after Make-Your-Own Panini Party, we thought: Why not have some fun and celebrate the three-day weekend with friends ? Use these five party ideas to create an extended holiday using Thanksgiving leftovers.

Monty Python’s The Holy Grail-Themed Renaissance Party

Attire for this gathering is “medieval chic.” Men: think knights in shining armor. Ladies, let your hair down and channel your inner-Guinevere. Instead of carving up the monstrous turkey drumsticks on the big day, set them aside (and ask your guests who roast turkeys to do the same) so guests at your gathering can get their photo snapped gnawing on a big turkey bone, with a big ole mug of ale in the other.

Menu:

Turkey Drumsticks

Potato Croquettes from The Daily Meal

D'Artagnan's Braised Wild Turkey Ragu from The Daily Meal

Hedgehog Mushroom and Turkey Pot Pie from The Daily Meal

Winter Squash Pudding from The Daily Meal. Skip the first step and use leftover squash that's already cooked for a short-cut.

Breakfast for Dinner

After Thanksgiving, sometimes you just want to lay low, lounge around in your pajamas and watch movies all day. Here is an excuse to do just that: Have a “slumber” party where guests arrive in their PJs – sleeping bag and teddy bear optional. Whip up some breakfast favorites with your leftovers as you play board games or watch movies all night.

Menu:

Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes, from The Daily Meal. Swap in pumpkin or butternut squash puree for the lemon zest and juice. Serve these with maple syrup and cranberry sauce.

Egg-White Frittata from The Daily Meal. Instead of leeks and sundried tomatoes, use roast turkey and leftover vegetables for a Thanksgiving twist.

Mexican Fiesta

Leave your holiday woes behind by hosting a fun Mexican-themed party, complete with a turkey piñata (we suggest filling it with chocolate, not stuffing) and cranberry cocktails, since what's a fiesta without booze? Bring out the maracas and sombreros, and use your leftovers to create some classic Mexican dishes with a new twist.

Menu:

Cat Cora's Healthy Enchilada Pie from The Daily Meal. Try making these with leftover sweet potato or squash puree for vegetarians, too!

Cranberry Lola in Love Cocktail from The Daily Meal

Simple Salsa from The Daily Meal. Add in some leftover cranberry sauce for a slightly sweet kick.

Turkey Bowl Party

For many people, football is a close second to turkey on the Thanksgiving Day menu – use the sports fans for inspiration to plan something fun for “kids” of all ages. Just as perfect for jocks as for people who’d like to work off some calories from the previous day, set up a touch football game for the adults and turkey-bowling on the lawn for the kids. Everyone will enjoy a chance to laugh and run around outside, and they’ll also work up an appetite for a hearty chili menu.

Menu:

Brisket and Pumpkin Chili from The Daily Meal. Instead of using brisket, cook the beans and spices as instructed, adding roasted turkey once the beans are tender. This will cut down on your cooking time, too.

Roasted Vegetable Salad from The Daily Meal. For added heft, add other Thanksgiving leftover favorites, or toss some roasted turkey with a bit of mayonnaise and curry power for a quick turkey salad.

Thanksgiving Pizza Party

Like Chef Michael Chiarello’s Panini party, get your friends together to make your own pizzas, Thanksgiving-style, using leftovers on grilled pizza flatbreads. Fire up the grill one last time for the season and have each guest bring a bottle or six-pack of their favorite beverage to get the creative juices flowing.

Menu:

Make Grilled Pizzas

Top with:

Butternut or sweet potato puree with blue cheese and cranberries or bacon bits.

Instead of tomato, spread pizza with cranberry sauce, shredded turkey and cheese. Top with dollops of mashed potato and drizzle with gravy.

Mashed potatoes topped with shredded turkey tossed in gravy, a la "pulled turkey." Top with dollops of stuffing.

Post Thanksgiving Recipe Ideas That Are Better Than A Black Friday deal

For those of us who love to cook, it goes by in the blink of an eye. We spend all day (nay, days!) cooking, and before we've put our feet up, it’s over. Everyone has plates piled high, they'ree gathered around the TV, and settled in for a cozy marathon.

Take On A Weekend Cooking Project

As it happens, we have a solution: turn the weekend after Thanksgiving its own occasion. Make it a two day period focused not on shopping but on lounging and cooking and enjoying.

As in creatively working through leftovers and taking on a few only-at-the-holidays project. Maybe finally try your hand at those candy wrapper pasta (then freeze them for Christmas Eve) or get a head start on cookie baking. And definiely make time to make eggnog. Because this weekend happens to be the perfect day to get started on a batch of “aged” eggnog, and to re-gather your crew for leftovers and more together time.

Why You'll Want To Make Aged Eggnog

Never heard of aged eggnog? Well, now you have, and now things will never be the same come mid-December in your house. After a minimum 14 days (some people age it for years!) in the fridge, this eggnog takes on a perfect smoothness, the sweetness mellows out, and the alcohol softens.

It’s just the thing to toast the holidays with, and it’s the perfect excuse for a Black Friday leftovers party. That’s exactly what goes on in Aida Mollenkamp’s house: she makes an annual event of it, throwing in the Black Friday towel, reclaiming the kitchen, mixing up some eggnog for edging thenbringing her family back to feast on second, third and fourth helpings of leftovers — revamped in their own delicious, but easy ways.

Giving Your Post Holiday Leftovers A Boost

Here are some ideas of how to use up the Thanksgiving leftovers while still keeping spirits bright.

Post Holiday Cocktail Ideas

If you're taking the long weekend, you'll likely be mixing up a drink or two. Here are some seasonal cocktail ideas that use leftovers:

  • Mix up this Spiced Persimmon Old Fashioned Cocktail
  • Use leftover apple cider in this Pomegranate Ginger Apple Punch (pictured) or this Smoked Whiskey Apple Cider Cocktail
  • If you have loads of citrus, char it briefly for this Charred Citrus Margarita Cocktail
  • Swap the simple syrup for leftover cranberry sauce in this Spiced Cranberry Pear Bourbon Cocktail

Make Some Healthy-ish Recipes

If you're determined to reset after Thanksgiving (while still using up leftovers), we totally understand. Here are some ways to do just that:

  • Lighten things up and make this healthy-ish Turkey Cranberry Waldorf Salad (pictured)
  • Ditch the leftover turkey sandwiches and try this Turkey Tortilla Soup
  • Opt out of takeout and instead try a turkey version of this Chicken Noodle Miso Soup
  • Tailgate in your own living room and mix up a batch of this Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili
  • Right (almost) any wrongs (and fight off illness) with this Citrus Coconut Electrolyte Drink

Get Your Snack On

Perhaps all you can manage right now is snacking and that's pefectly okay. Here are some recipes for easy and (pretty) healthy snacking:

  • Queue up Netflix and snack on this Coconut Kettle Corn (pictured)
  • Get away from those uber Thanksgiving flavors with these Lime And Chile Mexican Bar Peanuts
  • Or make a modern take on Chex Mix with this Cocoa And Chile Spiced Plantain Snack Mix
  • Use extra sweet potatoes in these Baked Sweet Potato Fries With Avocado Cilantro Sauce

Make A Big Breakfast

Since you have a few days off, you could do a breakfast in bed, a big brunch, or just a lazy Sunday cook session.

  • Use the last of your mashed potatoes in these Mashed Potato Pancakes
  • Up your seasonal toast game with this Toasted Brioche With Asian Pear Compote (pictured)
  • Take breakfast to new heights (sorry, couldn't help ourselves!) with this Dutch Baby Pancake
  • Switch it up with this Austrian-Style Rum Raisin Shredded Pancake
  • Or use up leftover cannded pumpking in this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Smoothie

Get Your Bake On

Finally, if you're making a culinary beeline for December, you'll likely want to bake and bake some more. But if you're not quite ready to make holiday cookies, here are some other ideas:

  • Use up leftover pumpkin puree in these Apple Cinnamon Pumpkin Muffins
  • Mix extra pears and baking ingredients to make these Spiced Pear Fritters
  • Get rid of extra carrots with these Pistachio Spiced Coconut Carrot Muffins
  • Try your hand at homemade Swedish Cinnamon Rolls

Okay, now that you have plenty of cooking inspiration, go stock up on all your cooking essentials then head into the kitchen and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!

Thanksgiving is one of the biggest food holidays of the year! This year, with fewer mouths to feed around your table, you may find yourself with extra thanksgiving leftovers.

These recipes & tips can turn days-old leftovers into a new and flavourful meal, and not the same plate of food microwaved again and again. I’ve even included a roasted vegetable skewers recipe that uses leftover ingredients and can be made in under 15 minutes.

HOW TO STORE THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS:

In the Fridge: Pack up cooled leftovers into containers, and store them in the fridge for up to four days. Using small containers will save you tons of fridge space.

In the Freezer: Pack up cooled leftovers into airtight containers, label and date them, and freeze them for up to three months. Soup, gravy and other liquids will expand as they freeze, so leave a little space at the top of the container.

5 WAYS TO USE THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS

Here are ways to use Thanksgiving leftovers and turn them into new & tasty meals:

The solution? These easy-to-make Thanksgiving leftover recipes, including crowd-pleasing breakfasts and hearty dinners that the whole family will love.

Rather than settling for boring, bland turkey sandwiches, consider these genius ways to use up your Thanksgiving leftovers. An added bonus: They'll free up some fridge space . just in time for Christmas cookie season.

Turkey Salad with Dried Cherries

Chicken salad is one of our go-to ways to use leftover chicken, so why not do the same with your remaining Thanksgiving turkey? Dried cranberries can be used to really stick with the Thanksgiving theme, but tart-sweet dried cherries are a real treat. Mixed with celery and celery root, as well as pine nuts, there’s plenty of pleasant crunch. Light sour cream is used as well as mayo so it’s not too heavy, and a dash of Champagne vinegar gives it just the right hit of acid to balance the creaminess of the dish.


How to make the most of Thanksgiving leftovers

With good reason, we’ve been talking a lot this year about smaller Thanksgiving meals. Many of us are making fewer dishes for fewer people. But that raises the inevitable follow-up question: What will the leftovers situation look like?

It depends, really. You may end up with not as many leftovers if you’re making less food, or you may end up with more even after scaling down your dishes when there are not as many mouths to feed. Regardless of the situation, you’re going to have to do something with the extra food.

Frankly, anything in this year that takes some of the burden off the daily grind feels like a blessing, leftovers included. But I know they’re not the problem everyone likes to have, if you get tired of eating the same things or are not motivated to reinvent them.

To help you find that silver lining, I’ve collected a host of ideas to use some of the more common parts of the holiday meal. They cover a wide spectrum in terms of how much work you have to put into using them, so you can find the right fit for your favorite leftovers.

Have a favorite use of leftovers? Share in the comments below.

Turkey. I know, this is the leftover content you're really here for. Of all the also-rans, the turkey is probably the most maligned, neglected and yet versatile. If your biggest concern is dry meat and how you can reuse it with the least amount of trouble, here's a tip I uncovered in our archives from former Washington Post staffer Renee Schettler: “Simply fry it in copious amounts of butter.” [Insert mind-blown emoji.]

Of course, one of the most reliable standbys is the turkey sandwich. And the one I’m thinking about right now is my colleague Ann Maloney’s Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Po’ Boy, below, which piles cornbread dressing, gravy and cranberry sauce with the meat onto soft bread. Look. At. That.

Schettler’s package from 2002 also included a mash-up of a Cobb salad and club sandwich that featured bacon, avocado, mayo and red onion piled onto dense, crusty white bread with sliced turkey. Another option: a grilled sandwich with avocado and mozzarella. Or how about a Hot Brown (open-faced) sandwich, that Kentucky staple? If you have leftover gravy, you could swap it in for the traditional cheese sauce for a hybrid experience. To be extra, you could turn the turkey into a falafel-esque meal.

If you’re feeling extremely motivated Thursday evening, go ahead and assemble a strata to have Friday morning. That’s a pretty easy dish to improvise, with eggs, milk, bread, cheese and whatever else you want to toss in. For a more specific game plan, check out Dorie Greenspan’s Next Day Turkey-and-Cranberry Sriracha Strata, above, which uses leftover turkey and cranberry sauce, plus greens, cheddar and an unexpected cinnamon raisin bread.

Anything that requires a filling will take nicely to turkey, whether that’s tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas, ravioli or pot pies (bonus points if you have extra pie crust). Turkey is an ideal topper, too, on pizza, salads and pasta, perhaps with a creamy Parmesan sauce.

And who could turn down a one-skillet meal, especially after all the cooking and cleaning for the holiday? Enter hash, stir-fries and shredded turkey warmed and tossed with barbecue sauce for a more seasonal spin on pulled chicken.

Bread/rolls. Naturally, here’s what to use for your sandwiches. Leftover bread works well for bread pudding, French toast and croutons, too. If all else fails, blitz it in the food processor and give yourself a good stash of breadcrumbs to keep handy in the freezer.

Cranberry sauce. As is, cranberry sauce makes a perfect day-after sandwich relish. It can also bring tartness to otherwise sweet dishes, as a topper for waffles, pancakes, yogurt, oatmeal and even ice cream. Speaking of which, if you’re a fellow hardy soul who eats ice cream regardless of season, whip up a batch of your own and swirl in dollops of cranberry after churning. For other sweet possibilities, cranberry sauce can go inside thumbprint cookies, rugelach or even a riff on sticky buns.

A long time back in our archives, Elizabeth Post Mirel suggested adding some to beef stew or pot roast for a hit of bright flavor, much as you might accomplish with lemon juice. Have you tried it in fruit salad, too? She also said cranberry sauce can serve as the base for a barbecue sauce. Ditto vinaigrette.

Stuffing. In name alone, “stuffing waffles” sound like something dreamed up for social media. But they’re trendy for good reason: They’re eye-catching and fun to eat. If your stuffing is already pretty moist, go ahead and pack it into your iron. If it’s on the dry side, you can add eggs, or even broth, to serve as a binder. Top with leftover turkey, cranberry sauce and/or gravy. Maple syrup is fair game as well, even more so if there’s sausage in the stuffing. (If not, now would be the time to consider adding some to the mix!) No waffle iron? Simply mix the stuffing with eggs and fry up individual fritters in the skillet with butter or oil.

Even if you didn't stuff your turkey with it, stuffing can fill plenty of other foods. In another story from our deep archives, Jane Adams Finn suggested using stuffing to fill large mushroom caps: “Moisten the stuffing with a little broth, if necessary, and brush the stuffed mushroom caps with melted butter and bake until the mushroom is cooked through.” Or, as Post Mirel shared, tuck celery and apple stuffing into pork chops: “Into the slit of a thick chop insert about 2 tablespoons stuffing, close with a tooth pick and bake, covered, in a 325-degree oven for about 1 1/4 hours, uncovering for the last 20 minutes to brown.” I also like her idea to use sausage stuffing inside baked eggplant, peppers or tomatoes.


Cranberry sauce is a must for any Thanksgiving meal since it adds elements of sweetness and tartness on a plate of savory goodness, so why not bring that same appeal to a pasta dish?

How to make the most of Thanksgiving leftovers

With good reason, we’ve been talking a lot this year about smaller Thanksgiving meals. Many of us are making fewer dishes for fewer people. But that raises the inevitable follow-up question: What will the leftovers situation look like?

It depends, really. You may end up with not as many leftovers if you’re making less food, or you may end up with more even after scaling down your dishes when there are not as many mouths to feed. Regardless of the situation, you’re going to have to do something with the extra food.

Frankly, anything in this year that takes some of the burden off the daily grind feels like a blessing, leftovers included. But I know they’re not the problem everyone likes to have, if you get tired of eating the same things or are not motivated to reinvent them.

To help you find that silver lining, I’ve collected a host of ideas to use some of the more common parts of the holiday meal. They cover a wide spectrum in terms of how much work you have to put into using them, so you can find the right fit for your favorite leftovers.

Turkey. I know, this is the leftover content you're really here for. Of all the also-rans, the turkey is probably the most maligned, neglected and yet versatile. If your biggest concern is dry meat and how you can reuse it with the least amount of trouble, here's a tip I uncovered in our archives from former Washington Post staffer Renee Schettler: “Simply fry it in copious amounts of butter.” [Insert mind-blown emoji.]

Of course, one of the most reliable standbys is the turkey sandwich. And the one I’m thinking about right now is my colleague Ann Maloney’s Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Po’ Boy, below, which piles cornbread dressing, gravy and cranberry sauce with the meat onto soft bread. Look. At. That.

Schettler’s package from 2002 also included a mash-up of a Cobb salad and club sandwich that featured bacon, avocado, mayo and red onion piled onto dense, crusty white bread with sliced turkey. Another option: a grilled sandwich with avocado and mozzarella. Or how about a Hot Brown (open-faced) sandwich, that Kentucky staple? If you have leftover gravy, you could swap it in for the traditional cheese sauce for a hybrid experience. To be extra, you could turn the turkey into a falafel-esque meal.

If you’re feeling extremely motivated Thursday evening, go ahead and assemble a strata to have Friday morning. That’s a pretty easy dish to improvise, with eggs, milk, bread, cheese and whatever else you want to toss in. For a more specific game plan, check out Dorie Greenspan’s Next Day Turkey-and-Cranberry Sriracha Strata, above, which uses leftover turkey and cranberry sauce, plus greens, cheddar and an unexpected cinnamon raisin bread.

Anything that requires a filling will take nicely to turkey, whether that’s tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas, ravioli or pot pies (bonus points if you have extra pie crust). Turkey is an ideal topper, too, on pizza, salads and pasta, perhaps with a creamy Parmesan sauce.

And who could turn down a one-skillet meal, especially after all the cooking and cleaning for the holiday? Enter hash, stir-fries and shredded turkey warmed and tossed with barbecue sauce for a more seasonal spin on pulled chicken.

Bread/rolls. Naturally, here’s what to use for your sandwiches. Leftover bread works well for bread pudding, French toast and croutons, too. If all else fails, blitz it in the food processor and give yourself a good stash of breadcrumbs to keep handy in the freezer.
