The Best Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

Thanksgiving is over and that probably means your fridge is stuffed with lots of extra leftovers. Skim these fantastic recipes and start planning what to do with your leftovers. 

1. Turkey Spring Rolls with Cranberry Sweet-n-Sour Dipping Sauce

This lends classic Asian flavors with an all-American twist.  Bake the rolls instead of frying them to cut down on the calories, but you can deep fry them for extra flavor. If you can’t find spring roll wrappers, use the egg roll wrappers. They don’t bake well, so deep-fry them instead. Use real soy sauce brewed from soybeans, and not the stuff with caramel coloring and salt. Click here to view the recipe.
