I do not do leftovers. What is not eaten at holiday dinners gets sent home with my guests. One year, I made plates of dinner including the rolls, desert and a soda placed on sturdy throw-aways plates and my cousins took and distributed them out to the homeless around town. Got rid of the leftovers, made a lot of people happy, including ourselves.

In regards to turkey, I freeze the leftovers. They freeze really well. Turkey pot pie is one of my favorite leftover turkey meals.

We usually eat a late lunch/early dinner, so we're usually snacking on leftovers in the early evening.

The mashed potatoes can be used as a base for corned beef hash patties. Good breakfast food.

If I have leftover roast chicken , or turkey, I rely on good old Campbell's crream of soup.. could be mushroom, chicken, celery, asparagus...
and I cook up some egg noodles and mix it all together. Nothing fancy but hubby likes it. Sometimes I will add some veggie to it.

Boy, how times change!

I saw this thread, and thought, "I didn't make that post!". Then I saw the date. Wow! Over three years ago!

When I made that post, my daughter was only a couple months old. Now, she's a happy, healthy 3-y.o. My twins are 5, and the oldest boy is now a teenager.

Holiday leftovers? They don't last long. Maybe 36 hours, and that's pushing it.

Most things that are good the first time are good leftover in soup. We like soup from leftovers better than made fresh - more variety in flavor.

DH slices leftover baked potatoes into wedges and browns them in a little oil in a skillet.
We also sometimes spread them out on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic/herb seasoning. They then go into a 375 oven until golden on one side...then flip them with a spatula and do the other.

Other leftover vegetables, besides being good for soups, rice and pasta dishes, are good for topping baked potatoes.
You can also use them to make a good impromptu dip. Broccoli or spinach are especially good.

Has anyone mentioned using assorted leftovers as fillings for calzones? In fact, they can be used for all sorts of fillings.

I like to slice a French loaf in half lengthwise, pull out most of the inside, and fill it up with whatever I have plus cheese and mayo (Miracle Whip),
set halves on foil-covered baking sheet, cover loosely with foil (so foil doesn't stick), and put in 350 oven until filling is hot and bubbly. Then take foil off and let the top brown a little if you want. It's good either way.
Let it set a few minutes, then slice and serve. It's even good cold the next morning.
