Thanksgiving Leftovers Kids Will Love

It’s hard to get kids excited about leftovers, but check out these Thanksgiving leftover ideas that will update your run-of-the-mill turkey sandwich


 

Thanksgiving, it is a great holiday full of family time, changing leaves and, of course, tons of delicious food. But what are you supposed to do with all those leftovers, especially once the kids start complaining about too much turkey? Get creative of course! Try one of these leftover recipes to really wow the family post-Thanksgiving!

Turkey and cranberry grilled cheese

It’s no secret that kids love grilled cheese. This recipe from Ring Finger Tan Line claims that a spicy Monterey jack cheese with cranberry sauce is the ultimate combination! You can vary this recipe to your child’s tastes, and is a great way to re-use some turkey and sneak in some more protein.

 

Thanksgiving nachos

An easy to follow that is also a great way to utilize turkey and cranberry sauce? Girl Versus Dough has got you covered! Kids will love eating these nachos and it makes a great snack for watching the game. Fresh cilantro, lime juice and refried beans add some kick to leftovers, so make these if you still have turkey hanging around in your fridge by mid-October!

 

Thanksgiving croissants

These are as fun to make as they are to eat! You can combine ALL your leftovers, including mashed potatoes or yams, cranberry sauce, turkey, stuffing and even some pumpkin pie for a twist, and wrap the ingredients in puff pastry and bake. Kids will love helping you assemble the croissants and they are perfect for post-Thanksgiving breakfast.

Stuffing waffles

This is a creative way to reuse old stuffing. Simply add an egg and some stock to the leftover stuffing it in a waffle pan to create these whacky waffles! Kids will love eating them, especially drizzled in heated-up cranberry sauce.

Cranberry sauce bread

When you’re done with the turkey and stuffing, but still have cranberry sauce left, repurpose it by making sweet and tart cranberry sauce bread. Kids will love a slice for an afternoon snack with milk, or as a sweet breakfast on the weekend.  To make, add the chunky cranberry sauce (it can’t be the canned jelly type) to your favourite bread recipe.
