Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes


After a day or so of re-heating those Thanksgiving leftovers for meals, you may want to find something new to prepare with them. None of us want to eat the exact same thing day after day after day. Most of us don't like the idea of wasting a lot of food if we can help it either. Here are a few recipes ideas to help you reinvent those holiday leftovers for something new to put on the dinner table.

Aunt Betty's Famous Ham Dressing


This is not your ordinary recipe for dressing. This is my Aunt Betty's Famous Ham Dressing! It's my first "NEW" recipe post from our new home. The thing is, it's not really a new recipe. It's an old family recipe, shared with me, and is probably older than I am. It was the traditional signature dish that my aunt would bring to family holiday gatherings. This was back when there were over 20 of us gathered at my grandparents home. I still have the memories of those holiday meals. Everyone would bring a dish to contribute. It was a true feast. Eventually the large gatherings faded away as older cousins left home and had families of their own. We still made a point to go around and visit relatives close by during holidays however. One stop was always to my Aunt Betty's house.

Breaded Turkey Breast Cutlets


Breaded Turkey Cutlets are a great way to enjoy turkey anytime of the year. They are also a budget friendly and perfect for intimate holiday meals.

I'm the first to admit, I love playing hostess during the holidays. I am one of those people who enjoy cooking a feast for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Big meals like that can easily cost a couple of hundred dollars. Yikes!

Cooking is not everyone's cup of tea, I get that. Life happens too! It's a fact. Maybe there's just you, or two of you to cook for. Perhaps you're a young family living on a tight budget. People lose spouses. Parents become empty nesters and you're sharing the kids with other families at holidays or the family just can't make it together. Turkey cutlets are a great alternative to roasting a big bird. You can make a small scale dinner in less than 30 minutes. That means you're not spending the day in the kitchen and you could have this meal any night of the year.
