Thanksgiving is a time for a feast with friends and family. After the party however, you are left with plenty of extra food. Once you eat a few sandwiches, what can you do with the Thanksgiving leftovers? Foodista has got you covered. 

From soup to waffles, there are many recipes that start with a leftover from the holiday. Check these out!

Cranberries are all the rage this time of year. It's the perfect opportunity to stock up on these tart berries and make some of this delicious cranberry orange chia seed jam. It's healthy, but it also so tasty!

A turkey dinner can sometimes mean many repeat meals. Now, this casserole is an example of a different way to use up your extras and get an entirely new flavor out of them. It's true comfort food! 

Turkey and Waffles

From Real Food by Dad

Have you ever enjoyed that after the holidays sandwich, full of tender turkey, mashed potatoes, tangy cranberry sauce and even bites of zesty dressing. Now you can have all those flavors layered between crunchy dressing that has been cooked to perfection in a waffle maker! What a fabulous idea! 

Cheesy Mashed Potato Croquettes

The name croquette is not as popular in American cuisine as it once was. They are still delicious however! These are full of cheese and creamy mashed potatoes, rolled in the famously crunchy Panko bread crumbs, and then fried to a crispy golden color. 

Turkey Noodle Soup

What would we do without soup? This one uses all the leftover flavors of Thanksgiving, and makes a beautiful bowl of comfort food. We love to make and freeze individual portions of this delicious soup for a quick lunch any time of year. It's simple and tasty.
