Looking for a turkey leftovers recipe? How about a recipe that takes care of all your leftovers at once?
I’ll admit I’m generally not much of a leftovers kind of gal, but there is something absolutely irresistible about Thanksgiving stuffing, turkey and mashed potatoes. I could eat Thanksgiving leftovers once a week for the rest of my life, and never get sick of it. Don’t even get me started on leftover pumpkin pie (best. breakfast. ever.)
So as the holiday nears, I find myself dreaming up a menu that will be equally good the day of, and all the days that follow. It’s one thing to heat up a plate of leftovers 2 or 3 times a day for a week (Don’t judge), but once you get down to the end of everything, even my beloved stuffing becomes a bit unappealing.
Enter this awesome Thanksgiving Leftovers Stromboli. It’s like leftovers wrapped up in a brown, crispy hug.
Step one: Roll out a prepared pizza crust
Step Two: Top with cranberry sauce and leftover turkey
Step Three: Pile on leftover stuffing
Step Four: Finish with a pile of leftover mashed potatoes
Step Five: Roll it up and bake! 400 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with a side of leftover gravy for dipping!!
I’ve pretty much become a hero in my house thanks to this recipe. Pizza is The Hubs’ absolute favorite food of all time, so wrapping anything in a pizza crust automatically makes it Hubs-approved. Do you think a regular leftovers pizza with gravy as the sauce would work too? I might have to try that next year.
