Thanksgiving is one of the many great food holidays of the year. A plethora of yummy dishes are prepared, served, and enjoyed. The only problem? Too many leftovers! But don’t fear, these two recipes below will turn those leftovers into lovely meals!

Stuffing Egg Cups by Jodie Fitz

Leftover Stuffing

PICS eggs, large

PICS bacon, cooked and diced

PICS shredded sharp cheese

PICS nonstick cooking Spray

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Coat each muffin tin cup with the nonstick cooking spray.

Add 2 – 3 tablespoons of leftover stuffing to each cup and press it to form a thin bowl of stuffing that covers the side and base of each individual cup in the muffin pan.

Add an egg to each cup.

Top each cup with diced, cooked bacon and shredded cheese.  Bake the egg bites for approximately 15 minutes, until the egg is fully cooked and the cheese is melted.

Baked Bacon:  Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Lay the strips of bacon on the foil.  Bake for approximately 18 – 20 minutes.  Remove the bacon strips from the foil with tongues, and place them on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb any extra grease.

Other Meats:  You can swap the bacon for breakfast sausage, diced ham or even diced leftover turkey.

Add in leftover veggies:  You can dice your favorite leftover veggies and add them to the top of the egg along with the bacon or you can eliminate the meat and go vegetarian. 

Top it off:  You can also add a little cranberry sauce on top for a sweet and savory mix of leftovers.

Thanksgiving Leftover Garbage Bread by Jodie Fitz

1 PICS pizza dough, thawed

Brie cheese, room temperature

Leftover stuffing

Leftover cranberry sauce

Leftover turkey, diced

PICS butter, room temperature

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Butter the sides and base of a glass loaf pan.

On a floured surface, roll the pizza dough into a rectangular shape.

Cut the rind off of the Brie cheese.

Spread the Brie cheese onto the rolled dough.

Generously sprinkle the leftover stuffing, cranberry sauce and turkey on top of the  cheese.

Roll the dough up with all of the leftovers.  Pinch the seam together, fold the edges and press those together.

Place the stuffed dough, seam down into the loaf pan.

Bake the garbage bread for 40 – 45 minutes.

Remove the loaf from the pan, slice and serve warm.

Leftover Veggies:  You can slice and dice leftover veggies and add them to the mix as well.

Store it!  You can wrap the bread in waxed paper or parchment paper, place it in an airtight storage bag and keep it in the refrigerator for a couple of days.  Slice and warm before serving.  This is best warmed in an oven or toaster oven.
