Don’t let your Thanksgiving leftovers go to waste! Check out these 30+ easy and delicious was to incorporate your Thanksgiving leftovers into your post-holiday breakfasts, lunches & dinners.
Thanksgiving is only 2 days away (yay!), so chances are you probably already have your pretty much menu set in stone. But, have you given any thought to how you’re going to use those leftovers in the days that follow?
It’s estimated that Americans throw away an average of $277 million worth of food EVERY THANKSGIVING! I don’t know about you, but that is one statistic that I do not want to be a part of.
So, today I’m sharing some of my favorite ways to incorporate Thanksgiving leftovers into any (or all!) of your post-Thanksgiving meals. And, to top it all off, I’ve also thrown in a few delicious recipes from fellow RD bloggers to get you started.
Of course, this is by no means meant to be a comprehensive or exclusive list. Rather, this is just meant to help you to start thinking outside of the box when it comes to using up Thanksgiving leftovers. Don’t be afraid to get creative in the kitchen and try new things – that’s half the fun!
I hope you leave feeling inspired (and hungry)! (more…)

But that’s not to say that I don’t crave a good, savory breakfast from time to time. It’s just that these “times” tend to fall after 12 PM.
Truth be told, I eat breakfast for dinner (or lunch) far more often than any grown woman probably “should”. But honestly, can you blame me? There are just SO many amazing breakfast options out there.. and not nearly enough breakfasts in the day.
