Turkey Day Leftovers? #SundaySupper Has You Covered!

If your family is anything like ours, your eyes are far bigger than your stomach.  Don’t get me wrong, we generally have quite the crowd for Thanksgiving dinner and we do need a fair amount of food, but there’s always plenty to take home as leftovers.
We do our dinner potluck style.  Everyone has a responsibility – I handle the turkey breasts (we only do breasts – no one cares for the dark meat), gravy, potato salad and apple pie.  There is homemade macaroni and cheese, broccoli casserole, a ham, sweet potato casserole, dressing (what we Southerners call stuffing when you don’t actually stuff the bird, rather make it and bake it in a pan), cranberry sauce, deviled eggs, green beans, another dessert of some sort and rolls.
Sound like a lot?  That’s because it is.  And, while it’s all pretty darn amazing, everyone has already had at least one other Thanksgiving meal before our gathering and we’ve all about hit our limit on the standard fare once it’s over.  I’m always looking for ways to do something different with our leftovers.  One of my favorite ways to enjoy them is in a monster sandwich of sorts.  It has a little bit of everything.  I also love to take the ham and turkey and reuse those as the base for other recipes.  I do a lot of my cooking ‘fly by the seat of my pants’ style.
Need a little more structure when it comes to using those leftovers?  Check out these recipes from the amazing #SundaySupper team!  While I don’t have one of my own to add this week, you can be sure several of these will be on our menu in the coming weeks.  Another tip… that cooked meat freezes great to use later!
