Thanksgiving hasn’t even arrived yet, and already I’m talking leftovers. That’s because leftovers are the best part of the holiday, even better, in my opinion, than the meal itself. Pumpkin pie never tasted so good as when spooned straight out of the pie plate the morning after. Turkey, cold from the fridge, is at its finest layered up with stuffing and cranberry sauce onto a ridiculous sandwich. And mashed potatoes patted into little cakes and browned in a hot skillet? Yes, please. To help you take full advantage of every post-Thanksgiving morsel, I’ve gathered up eight Thanksgiving leftovers recipes. Perhaps one or more will come in handy this Friday when you are staring down a fridge full of goodies.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
