For starving college students, Thanksgiving is one of the best times of the year. Not only do you have the benefit of a glorious 4500 calorie meal, you’ll get leftovers. Here are some creative things that you can do with your Thanksgiving leftovers.
Turkey Cranberry Panini- Grab some whole grain bread and slather on some cranberry sauce, top with turkey and some sprouts or spinach and grill on both sides for a warm sandwich or, use a leftover roll for a cold sandwich.
Turkey Casserole- This is a family favorite of mine and I almost expect it after Thanksgiving as much as I anticipate Turkey on the actual day. Shred some leftover turkey, mix in you leftover stuffing, add some chopped celery and grated carrots and mix all together. Use a can of Cream of Mushroom soup to combine and slip in the oven at 350 degrees.
Turkey Cesar Salad- Top salad greens with shredded turkey, a few cranberries, and almonds for a delicious light meal after Turkey Day. If you’re feeling really ambitious, toast your leftover dressing in the oven and use for croutons to give your salad a crunch.
