My family's absolute favorite way to use up leftovers is post-thanksgiving breakfast - a tradition in our house. Mix leftover mashed pots with leftover stuffing and some cubed turkey. Fry in obscene amounts of butter in a fry pan til it gets all crispy and delicious. Then make a hole in the center and fry yourself an egg in there. Top with hot sauce! If you really want to go all in, throw some shredded cheese on top and just wallow in post-thanksgiving indulgence. A bloody mary helps it go down. As for recovery/detox - we don't even discuss that in our house until after New Years!

I found a turkey tetrazzini recipe in one of my circa 1945 cookbooks that is wonderful. No cans of soup involved. Can't wait to make it again.

We accidentally discovered that turkey makes a good pulled pork substitute. Shred it like you would the pork, slather with your favorite BBQ and put on buns. Yum! My family totally goes crazy for this!
