If there were a bad part about Thanksgiving, I think it would be all the leftovers. No matter what happens, it seems like everyone has another 4 meals out of what’s left. You can serve it as is or make turkey sandwiches. But what’s life if there is no variety?
But with just a little bit of preparation you can have some variety to your leftover meals this Thanksgiving – some spice in your life! the preparation I’m talking about is simply making some extra rolls – or just buying a package of premade crescent rolls. If you make homemade rolls – which I dream to about – just double your batch and set aside half the dough for the next day. If you’re a store bought girl – which I am – then pop open that package when you’re ready to heat up some leftovers.
- An assortment of Thanksgiving leftovers - i.e. :: turkey, pork loin, green beans, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, beets
- 8 rolls
- Pile leftovers into small 2"x2" piles on a cookie sheet and freeze overnight
- When you're ready to cook Friday's dinner, preheat oven to 350.
- Roll out premade dough into triangles and place frozen piles on top
- Cover your leftovers as completely as possible with your dough
- Place on buttered cookie sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes - or until lightly rolls are lightly brown.
