Zero Hour Leftover Recipes
We’re nearing a week since Thanksgiving and if you still have leftovers, the clock is ticking until all that goodness regrettably needs to leave your refrigerator. If you’ve grown tired of recreating the Big Feast, or eating yet another turkey sandwich, we found four ways to transform your leftovers into something special… while there’s still time.
Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Thanksgiving Style
The Foodies over at FoodRepublic.com bring up a point seldom considered: The one thing Thanksgiving doesn’t have is piles and piles of bubbly melted cheese.
Behold the Thanksgiving Leftover Macaroni & Cheese.
If you feel like going out in a comfort food blaze of glory, this recipe is a great way to bid a final farewell to your leftovers.
If, on the other hand, your body and taste buds are screaming lighter fare, this veggie-packed Turkey Pho recipe from ClosetCooking.com is a delicious way to detox. Based on the classic Vietnamese noodle soup, this version leverages leftover turkey and stock to create a light, textured soup.
Cheap, Easy, Yummy
Who doesn’t like pizza? YumSugar’s Turkey, Cranberry, & Pesto Pizza transforms leftovers into a Trattoria-quality pie.
This recipe combines store-bough pizza dough, turkey, cranberries, pesto and fresh goat’s cheese. Better make two, just to be safe.

And lastly, don’t forget our Chanterelle Soup with Turkey & Cranberry Garnish. The earthiness of mushrooms and comforting Turkey and Cranberry garnish pick up the tasting notes of our Carneros Hills Pinot Noir.
This elevated way to perk up leftovers is also really easy to make (but don’t tell your guests).
