Allegro’s Shepard Pie
Allegro’s Shepard Pie

If your Thanksgiving game is strong, then you probably still have some T-Day leftovers lurking around in the fridge. Once you’ve made that quintessential turkey sammie or had 3rd day reheats, give this one pan, throw it in the oven, set-it-and-forget-it shepherd's pie a try! A great vehicle for that leftover green bean casserole, those roasted veggies, and your potato mash. I make a quick pot of lentils to introduce a non-leftover ingredient, play up the Herbs de Provence seasoning from the roasted veggies and the green bean casserole helps to create the gravy. Pro tip: if you have some of those shallots still laying around and little time to fry, garnish your Shepard's pie with more tasty shallot rings!

Ashley’s Dad’s White Bean and Ham Soup
Ashley’s Dad’s White Bean and Ham Soup

Ashley loves ham! Almost as much as she loves her dad’s white bean and ham soup. This soup is a family favorite year round, but especially around the holidays. Make a lot- it freezes well!

Bridget’s Bread Pudding for Breakfast
Bridget’s Bread Pudding for Breakfast

Leftover dinner rolls going stale? After running out of leftover pie to eat for breakfast, our family always turns leftover dinner rolls into a classic New Orleans bread pudding to keep our sweet tooths satiated throughout the holiday season. A warm chunk of bread pudding and a cup of hot tea keeps us all cozy inside on those rare chilly Louisiana days. This simple recipe from Mulate’s is a Rabun family favorite.

Cristina’s Collard Green Melt
Cristina’s Collard Green Melt

A homemade Collard Green Melt is my go-to post-Thanksgiving indulgence. Credit where credit is due, of course - Turkey and the Wolf are the originators of this masterpiece. Use your leftover spicy collards or whip up some more and enjoy!

Diya’s Mama Wheeler’s Lobster Curry
Diya’s Mama Wheeler’s Lobster Curry

Lobster curry is a fusion recipe born from the South Indian and New England cultures of the Wheeler household. It is a family favorite during the holidays and a staple on Thanksgiving alongside turkey. Warm, spicy, and meaty, this curry is best the next day, mopped up with sweet Hawai’ian rolls (although serving over rice is always a good bet).

Robin’s Turkey Tetrazzini
Robin’s Turkey Tetrazzini

I wait all year long for the dishes I make with leftover turkey. My family favorite is the Turkey Tetrazzini and I have used this recipe many times, substituting homemade turkey stock for chicken broth, and using mushrooms from the market. Pro tip: spread leftover stuffing (dressing) on top instead of breadcrumbs. Yum!

Diya’s Cauliflower Bolognese
Diya’s Cauliflower Bolognese

Cauliflower from Mr. Timmy and shiitakes from Mycelium Express make this rich, hearty vegetarian meal all the more comforting! This meal can easily be made vegan by adding more oil instead of butter and nixing the parm. Enjoy with quinoa, focaccia, rice, or any other vegan carb you please!
