Stuffed Crescents with Thanksgiving Leftovers

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.

  1. Great idea! Love that these are such a portable way to eat up those leftovers. They’d be great to send off with my fiance, since he’s always eating his lunch on the road.
