  • Sweet potato balls

    What do you do with all of those leftover baked sweet potatoes? Sure, they're good just warmed up in the microwave with a little butter and brown sugar, but they're even better when made into sweet potato balls. These bite-sized treats have a mini marshmallow in the center, and they're rolled in crushed cereal for a little crunch. Serve them as a side dish or an appetizer.

  • Turkey pot pie

    Instead of the chicken called for in this recipe, use leftover turkey to make the ultimate comfort food: pot pie. You could even use leftover corn, green beans, carrots, peas, and other veggies in the filling. Make one big casserole-sized pot pie, or use ramekins and make individual pies.

    Don't throw away that leftover corn! Put in a big soup pot and turn it into sweet corn-sausage chowder. If you have leftover ham, throw it in alongside (or instead of) the sausage in this recipe.

    Here's another recipe that calls for chicken, but turkey would do just as well! This spicy soup is super easy to make, and it's served over crushed tortilla chips for a little added crunch.
