20+ Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes centered around turkey!Here are 20+ Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipes centered around turkey!

From casserole to pizzas and quesadillas to pasta dishes, these 20 or so Thanksgiving leftovers recipes are perfect for when you want to put a creative spin on all of that leftover turkey.

Happy Friday friends! Besides the weekly menu plan we provide for you guys with each week, I feel like it’s been a while since I posted a round-up. If you haven’t noticed, I have kind of been obsessed with recipes for Thanksgiving leftovers.

If you know me personally, then you know how I feel about leftovers. I don’t go crazy for them. I know. It’s terrible. I usually try to portion things out so that we either don’t have leftovers or there is just enough for Zach to take them to lunch.

While I’m not a huge fan of leftovers, I do love repurposing them. This isn’t always easy. I do always have a ton of cooked chicken breast on hand, which technically counts as a leftover, but it’s an ingredient that you can repurpose in so many different ways. I thought that making this Thanksgiving leftovers round-up revolve around turkey was a smart way to approach it. Don’t you guys agree? I mean we all have SOOO much turkey leftover!

You’ll find some odd recipes in this list. Not all of them have turkey, but with a quick substitution you’ll see why it works. Example: there are many recipes that have chicken (or tofu) that you will just sub for cooked turkey. You will see. I will point out along the way if something needs to be substituted. Follow along! I’ll meet you guys at the end!
