Thanksgiving is this week.
You guys. Thanksgiving is this week!
When you plan your holiday menu do you plan to intentionally have leftovers? I don’t, but I know there will be and I don’t necessarily try to mitigate them.
What do you do with all your leftover food? My brother’s favorite way to eat them is simply reheated in a skillet with some gravy. That’s really the best method for reheating the turkey and stuffing to make it taste just as good as T-day itself.
I’m a sucker for a cold turkey sandwich with some mayo on rye bread. I also enjoy a grilled cheese style sandwich with the turkey, creamed onions, and thin slice of apple.
But what do you do with the non-turkey items? I’m sure my Sunday Supper friends have some more creative and wonderful ideas on how to use up those holiday leftovers! A big thank you to Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventure for hosting today’s event.
When I had leftover sweet potato casserole last year, I decided to repurpose it into breakfast. (I mean, really, what else would I possibly do?) Waffles! I simply left out the streusel (marshmallow if that’s they way you go) topping and garnished my waffles with fresh pecans.
Just look at that cutie to the right! I can’t believe that was almost a full year ago. He looks so little. I mean, his brother can now wear that shirt! My how much can happen in one year.

Mmmmm these sound so good! I love the perfectly imperfect edges on the waffles – so restaurant worthy.
Ha! Thanks. I simply prefer a slightly too small waffle to risking spilling (and wasting) batter over the sides of the iron. :$
Reblogged this on Sarah's Attic Of Treasures and commented:
Left Overs are AS IMPORTANT OR EVEN MORE SO than the Actual Thanksgiving Dinner.
Danny and I love Leftovers. I mean we LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM.
Turkey on rye with mayo is great. And your sweet potato casserole Friday waffle looks excellent! #yummy and pinning!
Thanks! Happy Thanksgiving
These look fantastic. I love the whole wheat flour and Greek yogurt in there.
I’m always happy to add some extra nutritional boosts to my waffles!
