Hunk of Meat Monday: What to do with Thanksgiving leftovers?

It really is hard to believe Thanksgiving is four days away! I guess it snuck up on me since I am not cooking any turkey at my house. But, I am hoping to torture my husband with leftovers that I can steal away from the big meal.

I was inspired to start plotting planning  what I would use all the leftover goodies for when I saw the best chicken and dumplings ever linked up by Permanent Posies to last week’s Hunk of Meat Monday.

I feel like sometimes we go into this perpetual merry go round with turkey sandwiches and turkey noodle casseroles. So, I thought I would look for some must eat, out of the box recipes for the beloved leftover turkey.

Let’s begin with sandwiches.

Because sweet and salty combine equals bliss. And of course these are from Paula Deen.

Did somebody say brie???? This is from Baking Bites.

From one of my favorite Indy Food Bloggers, Annie’s Eats. She used chicken, but turkey would be divine.

Shugary Sweets favorite sandwich!

Now, let’s go to the beloved casseroles and savory pies.

Layers of each leftover starting with stuffing. Gotta try this from Petite Gourmess!

From your’s truly

Let’s see what you have cooking up this week. Can’t wait to see what ideas I can steal!

    We usually make a turkey, cheese, crackers, pickles, olives, banana pepper platter and watch a long series of movies (like Lord of the Rings)…that's our little tradition :)

    P.S. This is my first time linking up and I just wanted to say that I love the idea behind Hunk of Meat Monday! I'm a well-balanced meat eater, so it's nice to see someone else is too 😛
