Mashed Potatoes
Leftover mashed potatoes create the most scrumptious potato cakes (shown here in Giada’s recipe), croquettes, or use them for a Shepherd’s pie. Want something cozy? Reheat them with chicken or vegetable broth and puree into a creamy potato soup.

Cranberry Sauce
Mix leftover cranberry sauce with mayo and use as a sandwich spread. Want extra spice? Turn up the heat by adding chopped jalapeno to leftover cranberries and whisk into your favorite salad dressing.

Stuffing
Make killer quesadillas using leftover stuffing, string beans, turkey, and cranberry sauce.
