Okay ladies, this didn’t go as well as I had thought it would in my mind.  There were more people reading and commenting on Sunday’s column that ever before, all agreeing this is a great idea.

Except something happened between the reading, the commenting and the sharing-THERE HASN‘T BEEN ANY!!!

Here are some of my favorite ideas for leftovers though:

Turkey-saute some with any leftover onions, bell peppers and roasted potatoes and serve it as a hash under eggs for a really special breakfast.

Get some wrap-size tortillas and put in the turkey, some cranberry sauce, some leftover veggies and make a Thanksgiving wrap.

Use any leftover green beans (or other veggies), turkey and gravy and then use the leftover mashed potatoes over the top-bake and serve a “Turkey Shepherd’s Pie“.

The Veggies-If they are just steamed, mix with a vinegarette and just serve over lettuce as a salad.  Again, use some of the leftover turkey or ham and it makes a very nice, light dinner.

Potatoes-besides topping the shepherd’s pie, you can mix in some egg and make some potato “puffs“.  These can either be baked or fried, your choice.

Butternut squash?  I love to puree with roasted pears, honey, cinnamon, salt and pepper and serve.  The leftovers of this are delish thinned with some turkey/chicken stock and a touch of milk and add some of the leftover turkey for a very elegant different soup.

Leftover cranberry relish?  The whole works best here.  Add chopped apples, celery, toasted nuts and mix with some fat-free cool whip and an equal amount of mini-marshmallows.  

Or mix it with some apples and pears and top with your favorite oatmeal crumble topping and serve as a cobbler.

These are just a few-but I’d still really love for everyone to share some of your favorite recycling dishes for Sunday’s column!
