TIP OF THE DAY: Thanksgiving Leftovers, Part 2

We love these Thanksgiving leftovers recipes from Reynolds Kitchens.

They created recipes for three popular American foods—waffles, tacos and pizza—to use up your leftovers at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

FOR MORE RECIPES, see Part 1 of this article.

For breakfast, start with a Thanksgiving Leftovers Waffle. Your stuffing becomes the waffle!

If you don’t have enough leftover stuffing, you can make regular waffles (don’t add sugar) or toaster waffles and use the stuffing as a topping.

Ingredients Per Waffle

  • 1/2 cup stuffing/dressing
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Shredded turkey
  • Gravy

    1. PLACE the stuffing onto a waffle maker and bake until slightly crispy on the outside. While the waffle cooks…

    2. WARM the turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy.

    3. ASSEMBLE: Place the stuffing waffle on a plate and top with mashed potatoes and turkey. Drizzle with gravy, or pass the gravy in a pitcher.
