Two Dishes to Make with Thanksgiving Leftovers

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

These two recipes aren’t necessarily for Thanksgiving day (although you could try them out, of course); their optimal use falls on the day after, when you have a fridge full of leftovers.

Mashed Potato & Stuffing Patties

What you’ll need:

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


  1. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, onion and pepper. Stir in potatoes, turkey and stuffing.
  2. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, drop potato mixture by 1/2 cupfuls into pan; press to flatten slightly to form patties.
  3. Fry 4-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and heated through. Drain on paper towels.
