a leftover makeover

As much as we all wait in heightened anticipation for the annual Turkey Dinner, the days following are often bittersweet. We are usually met with our faithful friend, The Leftover, a reminder of a fabulous meal that may have left us all a bit too full!  Since everyone usually sticks to their tried and true family recipes for Thanksgiving, I thought it would be best to offer some easy, yet refined leftover dishes for those looking to make the most out of their holiday meals. Although Thanksgiving usually leaves you "all turkey-ed out," these gourmet finds use traditional ingredients in creative ways so you can best disguise that leftover bird!

I've broken the ingredients into sections so you can choose dishes based on what you happen to have left over (all the recipes can be found under the "Bites" tab). Here's to making the holidays last just a bit longer! Enjoy!
