Making too much food for Thanksgiving dinner is the best kind of problem to have. Many dishes taste just as good the next day, but some leftovers need a hand to keep their flavors intact. Here are a few tips for reusing the wealth of your holiday meal.
Just add broth. Splash any of your savory leftovers with some broth or stock before reheating. The broths and stocks will give a little boost of flavor and rejuvenate your leftovers and nothing will look or taste dried out.
Give cranberries a chance. If you didn’t get to serve some of the cranberry dishes we suggested for the big day, try some of them with any leftovers you might have. They’ll be so good you might just have to serve them at Thanksgiving dinner next year!
Transform leftover everything. This year, go beyond endless Thanksgiving sandwiches. Here are some of our favorite ways to deal with all those leftovers.
