Thanksgiving Leftover Life-Hacks

Thanksgiving –  a holiday dedicated to family, football, and leftovers. After your Thanksgiving feast, you will most likely have leftover turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes. Even though it is not likely that you will have any leftover KORBEL, here are some helpful tips, courtesy of KORBEL, to help you celebrate your Thanksgiving leftovers.

Leftover Preparation

Before your Thanksgiving meal, it is a good idea to make sure that your refrigerator is cleared out and ready to be filled with loads of leftovers. Food scientists advise that leftovers are best preserved when they are put away as soon as the meal is over. For longer preservation, freeze your leftovers.

The internet is filled with recipes for Thanksgiving leftovers. You can find ideas for everything from Thanksgiving leftover casseroles to Thanksgiving leftover lasagna. Thanksgiving leftovers recipes do not have to be lavish or hard to make – after all, they are leftovers. Here are two easy-to-make Thanksgiving leftover recipes that you are sure to love.

Turkey, Cranberry, Walnut Salad

Make a flavorful salad by combining your favorite Thanksgiving leftovers. Chop up the leftover turkey and add it to leafy greens like kale or romaine lettuce. Add some leftover cranberries and walnuts to the mix. Scatter some goat cheese over the salad to give it some extra sparkle. For the final step, drizzle cranberry salad dressing on top.


Switch up your regular B.L.T. by adding some new ingredients to it. Add some leftover turkey to your bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich. Adding cranberries and avocado will give your sandwich creation even extra flavor.

Donate Your Leftovers

Thanksgiving is a holiday dedicated to being thankful and appreciative of all that you have. A great way to tap into the Thanksgiving spirit is by giving back to the community. One important and helpful way to give back to the community is by donating your Thanksgiving leftovers. Contact your local food pantry or shelter to donate.  That includes any cans of green beans or cranberries that may have gone unopened.
