Thanksgiving Leftover Ideas
On Thursday, BakeSpace members across the US will celebrate Thanksgiving with a traditional holiday feast.
While everyone has a favorite Turkey Day recipes, we usually don’t give much thought to what we’re going to do with all the leftovers. Most of the time, we simply make turkey sandwiches or reheat everything in the microwave. So this year, BakeSpace is determined to help you try something different.
Opening the fridge and finding a shelf full of leftovers can be a bit overwhelming. But with a little inspiration from your fellow BakeSpace members, turkey and other Thanksgiving leftovers can be transformed into delicious meals that transcend the ordinary.
So get ready to try one of these fabulous new twists on Thanksgiving leftovers:
