FOX & Food: Things to Do With Thanksgiving Leftovers

How was that Turkey Day meal?  A big bird usually means some big leftovers, but do you really want to just eat the same exact thing again?  You can have some fun with what’s left.

FOX News Radio’s Lilian Woo has some creative tips for Thanksgiving leftovers:

A plethora of mashed potatoes is not a problem for chef Marc Murphy, who likes to take it, some cheese, mix together, roll in bread crumbs and egg flour:

(Murphy) “Deep fry them, make little croquettes.  And make a good dipping sauce.”

Murphy, of Landmarc in New York City, also uses mashed potatoes to top diced turkey, gravy and stuffing; throws it all in a pan and bakes for a Turkey Shepards Pie.

“How to Cook Everything” author Mark Bittman has dessert all figured out.  Take cranberry sauce…

(Bittman) “Pile the whole thing into a buttered baking dish, cover it with a typical crisp topping of oats and nuts and butter and sugar, all ground together.”

Bittman says underseasoning dishes gives you more flexibility the next day.
