5 Ways to Use Up Your Leftover Thanksgiving Mash

November 27, 2015

Vegetable mash takes to many forms, so we paired up with Goose Island to share a few post-Thanksgiving recipes to use up your leftovers.

Thanksgiving dinner has come and gone—you've gobbled down the turkey, stuffings, sides, and rolls. The pie has been taken down. And the multiple vegetable mashes that graced the table yesterday, well, now they're staring at you expectantly from a big bowl in the fridge. So do them a little justice and rather than heating up a scoop or two to use as a gravy vessel, get creative with what's leftover and try one of these post-holiday meals instead:

A genius method for a post-Thanksgiving breakfast, you really can't go wrong with fried mash and an egg.

An oldie but goodie, this turkey pot pie has a crust upgrade—and you can mix some mash in to make the filling extra rich, too.

Creamy Potato Soup with Bacon Vinaigrette

This soup also gets the mash treatment, and it's all dressed up in a bacon vinaigrette.
