What to Do with Holiday Leftovers

The Rest of the Fixin's

Leftover stuffing can be revived deliciously by adding leftover gravy and baking it at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Cranberry sauce can be mixed with leftover yams and heated thoroughly, for a sweet but healthy side dish.

Biscuits can make a second appearance – this time at the breakfast table. Heat up some shredded leftover turkey and gravy and serve it over the biscuits for a hearty breakfast.

Leftover cheese and crackers have multiple uses. Shred or grate the cheese as a topping for soup, chili, or nachos; crackers can be a topping for any type of casserole or baked main dish, and can be crushed to use as a breading.

And if, by some miracle, you still have a bit of dessert left, don't let it go to waste. Chop leftover pie or cobbler into pieces and use as a topping for vanilla ice cream – crown the whole thing with leftover whipped cream, and you've got a sumptuous treat.
