Thanksgiving Turkey: The Gift that Keeps on Giving


Guest post by Kris Longwell of How To Feed A Loon

K_W Headshot Wesley (The Loon) and I have been foodies for years. I think that’s one of the reasons we have remained so happily in love for over half a century.

Considering this, it will come as no surprise to learn that Thanksgiving is our favorite holiday of the entire year. It is always a time to give thanks for the wonderful things that have graced our lives, but it’s also a time to feast on some of the best food you’ll ever eat all year! It’s about family. It’s about appreciating the good things in life. It’s about food.

No matter how many people are joining us for the big feast, I always find myself preparing enough food to feed three times the amount of hungry loved ones who are coming over. So, that only leaves one big question: What to do with all these incredible leftovers?

Here are our three favorite day-after-Thanksgiving recipes! We truly hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Roasted Turkey Enchiladas (pictured at top)
Growing up in Texas, enchiladas were always a staple on the dinner table. These are so rich in flavor, and just keep getting better with the addition of leftover roasted turkey. Enjoy!

Fried Turkey Balls
You’ve got to trust us on this one—you will not believe how delicious these fried turkey balls are. Check out the recipe, and then watch us make them…LICKETY SPLIT!

Best-Ever Day-After-Thanksgiving Sandwich
The title of this recipe pretty much sums it up. This has been a tradition in our house for over 15 years. Make one for you and your loved ones, and you’ll understand why!
