10 Lovely and Delicious Thanksgiving Recipes

 

10. Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Pizza

 

This Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Pizza is fantastic! Our Cranberry Barbecue Turkey Pizza is savory with a kick of sweet-tart cranberry flavor. After eating a big, rich Thanksgiving meal, this crispy pizza is a welcome break from all of those heavier foods! But it’s still a great way to use up some of that leftover turkey and other vegetables in the fridge.

Instead of tomato sauce, this pizza uses our smoky cranberry barbecue sauce as the base for all of the delicious toppings including cooked turkey, sliced red onion, shaved Brussels sprouts and shredded cheese.

9. Thanksgiving Shepherd’s Pie

 

Whether you make this Thanksgiving Shepherd’s Pie for your main Thanksgiving meal as we did or use the remains of your turkey to make leftover turkey shepherd’s pie with stuffing crust the day after Thanksgiving, you’re going to love this versatile recipe.

Turkey Shepherd’s Pie might not be the first recipe you think of for Thanksgiving, but Thanksgiving shepherd’s pie combines all the Thanksgiving flavors in one perfect bite, whether you make it as your main meal or to use up Thanksgiving leftovers!

8. Delicicous Thanksgiving Recipes: Turkey Chili

 

This easy Turkey Chili is a great way to use up turkey leftovers from Thanksgiving and Christmas! Make it with shredded turkey (dark or white meat), kidney beans, onion, garlic, and tomatoes.

Here’s one of our favorite recipes for using Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. With kidney beans (canned or homemade), tomato, bell pepper, garlic and loads of spices, this chili is terrific, and easy to make with leftover shredded turkey meat – especially the dark meat!

7. Turkey Cranberry Quesadilla

 

Delicious Thanksgiving Recipes: While still not into the whole berries that tend to float round the sauce, and the canned stuff freaks me out a little (my husband loves it), I can’t help but sneak it onto sandwiches! And apparently quesadillas now.

The tart, sweet cranberry sauce with ooey gooey cheese, and turkey all nested in a crispy tortilla is freaking awesome you guys. I’m even thinking of adding some mashed sweet potatoes next time!

6. Leftover-Turkey Frittata A Delicicous Thanksgiving Recipes

 

Tonight we are going to have this lighter-on-the-belly Leftover-Turkey Frittata for dinner. It’s packed with leftover turkey and I added fresh spinach to it… it’s the only healthy thing in my fridge. This frittata goes really good with a nice dollop of sour cream or some plain thick yogurt.

Also, please don’t add too much salt to this. Your turkey was salted enough, I am sure, thus adding more salt to the eggs might result in a very salty experience.

5. Turkey Thai Curry A Delicicous Thanksgiving Recipes

 

This Turkey Thai Curry is the perfect weeknight meal that is a delicious way for using up that leftover turkey. A 20-minute savory dinner dish that you can have ready to serve your family in a hurry.

Rich Thai curry paste, red and green peppers, lemongrass paste, and leftover turkey come together for the best Thai curry recipe. Pair with tender rice, and you have an easy turkey curry dish.

4. Thanksgiving Leftovers Lasagna

 

When you’ve had your fill of turkey sandwiches and turkey soup, but there are still leftovers waiting to be eaten in the fridge, choose greatness. And by greatness we mean a towering lasagna filled with layers of roasted Brussel sprouts, creamy sweet potatoes, Thanksgiving stuffing, and of course, the turkey. One might even argue that this next-day meal is even better than the main event itself.

How’s that for a proclamation? But hear us out. Over time, the traditional Thanksgiving menu has evolved to include dishes that go well together. Or perhaps our palates have evolved to enjoy the food that’s traditionally served together. It’s your typical chicken or the egg scenario.

3. Creamy Turkey and Noodles

 

Warm and cozy creamy turkey and noodles is a simple dish perfect for dinner any night, especially the day after Thanksgiving!

That Thanksgiving turkey is so yummy the day of, but the leftovers are the best! They make a great addition to yummy recipes like Turkey Tetrazzini and Turkey Soup, and of course this creamy turkey and noodles! One item we always seem to have leftover of is the turkey. With that in mind, I wanted to share a recipe that would be great for AFTER Thanksgiving that could help use up some of that yummy turkey meat.

2. Creamy Wild Rice Turkey Soup

 

Wondering what to do with all that leftover Thanksgiving turkey? This Creamy Wild Rice Turkey soup is my absolute favorite way to use up leftover Thanksgiving turkey!

And for a creamy soup, this is fairly healthy and not too fattening–which is an important consideration in the days following your Thanksgiving feast.

1. Turkey Orzo Soup

 

Delicious Thanksgiving Recipes: I love that the cooler weather is approaching. It means more soup like this Turkey Orzo Soup. I will purposely buy a whole turkey or just the breast and roast it on a Sunday afternoon, knowing that I will almost always have leftovers.

The recipe below calls for chicken or vegetable broth; however, I’ve also used homemade turkey stock made from boiling the carcass with some onions, celery and carrots after all the meat has been carved from the bone.
