5 Recipes for Thanksgiving Leftovers

5 Recipes for Thanksgiving Leftovers

November 27, 2015

The day after Thanksgiving in Boston: some of you are out fiercely guarding your spot in line on Black Friday; some of you are still enjoying the post-turkey haze from last night. Wherever you are, one thing is probably true: you’ve got a lot of leftovers, and you’re wondering how many different ways you can combine turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce this week. Here at the Briar Group, we’ve put our heads together and found some of our favorite mouth-watering recipes for your leftovers.

1. Thanksgiving Pizza
Flatbread pizzas are everywhere lately, and we’re loving it. We’ve just added several flatbreads to the menu at the Green Briar in Brighton. So let’s combine two of the greatest food groups in the world: pizza and Thanksgiving leftovers. We recommend any combination of cheese, stuffing, and shredded turkey over a thin crust. Spoon warm gravy and cranberry sauce on after it comes out of the oven. Here's a great recipe to help.

2. Turkey Pot Pie
Looking for something hearty to feed your holiday guests? Throw leftover vegetables and turkey in a casserole dish, roll a pie crust over the top – and voila! Or, if you’re looking for a more traditional Irish pie dish, MJ O’Connor’s is serving a mean Shepherd’s Pie at our Back Bay location.
MJ O'Connor's is open Black Friday from 11:30AM until 2 AM.

3. Stuffing Bites
This one isn’t a Briar Group original – but we sure wish it were! It’s a new twist on our favorite dish: fried stuffing bites with a cranberry sauce/walnut dipping sauce. Throw this on the table this afternoon. Boom. We found a great recipe here.

4. Thanksgiving Soup
This is a perfect dish for everyone looking for something light after going a little too hard last night. Throw the whole turkey carcass in for a delicious broth as your base. Have some leftover vegetables, like sweet potatoes? Dice them up and throw them in.  French fried onion strings as a garnish.  Get creative and enjoy!

5. The Good Old Sandwich - at Anthem Kitchen
This one’s for the crowd that’s out and about today getting their Black Friday deals. The day-after turkey and stuffing sandwich is almost as good as Thanksgiving Dinner itself. Don’t miss out just because you’re catching the deals! Anthem Kitchen is serving up a turkey sandwich today to satisfy your Thanksgiving cravings. 
Anthem Kitchen is open Black Friday from 11 AM until 2 AM.
