I seriously think that I’d rather skip Thanksgiving and just go straight to the leftovers. I love the turkey sandwiches on homemade rolls, leftover pie and this day after Thanksgiving salad. I mean there’s all sorts of deliciousness to be made with all of that good food sitting around. Like these mashed potato cakes with cranberry chutney. Oh my goodness they are like heaven!! Does your family make anything with your leftovers?
I was getting ready for Thanksgiving this year and ended up with a few stragglers, raspberries from the Raspberry Jello Salad, Pomegranate seeds, turkey breast from our herb roasted turkey breast, tomatoes from the easy garden salad with garlic dill dressing, brown sugar almonds from the lemon berry salad and a little Dubliner Cheese from Kerry Gold that we use with snacks before dinner. Plus there was the orange juice from the orange rolls, and all of the seasonings so I decided to throw it all together and see what happens. Oh my goodness. It’s like sweet, salty, crunchy, and spiced creamy goodness. It’s seriously like a second Thanksgiving or even the holidays in one perfect bite. You get a spiced flavor from the creamy orange dressing that seriously tastes like Christmas. It’s wonderful and a great way to use leftovers so I hope you’ll try it.
