Turkey Eggs with Craft Beer Cranberry Sauce – What to do with Thanksgiving Leftovers



As any good American knows, the day after Thanksgiving is the real holiday. Finally all of that pesky family time and thankfulness is out of the way and Black Friday is here. You’re probably just waking up or just arriving home from a morning of shopping, deals and hopefully minimal trampling. Either way, there’s a fridge full of leftovers that aren’t going to eat or artfully arrange themselves. Instead of just throwing everything on a plate and recreating last nights dinner, we decided to try something a little different this year and make “turkey eggs”. keep reading...

The Gobblette: Getting Creative with Thanksgiving Leftovers & Eggs


20131201-180109.jpgTurkey Day is over but your fridge is likely still filled with leftovers. Instead of making ourselves a Gobblenator, like we did last year, Kevin came up with a way to combine brunch and Thanksgiving this year. Without further adieu we present you the Gobblette, the most American omelet you ever did cook (and eat).

First off, heat up a plate of all the leftovers you want to eat in omelet form. We opted to go with stuffing, creamed spinach, corn soufflé, ham, turkey and cranberry sauce on the side. keep reading...

Thanksgiving Leftovers: The Sandwich (Plus Beer Pairing)


Thanksgiving Leftovers

left·o·ver [left-oh-ver] adj. Remaining as an unused portion or amount. n. 1. A remnant or an unused portion. 2. leftovers Food remaining from a previous meal.

Leftovers are a huge part of the Thanksgiving tradition. For some people these delicious remnants are better than the actual Turkey-Day dinner itself. Let’s face it, the meal you slaved over is going to taste about 1 million (dollars) times better with your in-laws and relatives out of the house. Seriously, holidays are stressful so enjoy the fruits of your labor in peace. We won’t tell your aunt Edna.

This year we had several traditional items remaining and decided to combine them in a non-traditional way. We used several ingredients: stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce to make a sandwich on bakery rye bread. This delicious monstrosity was dubbed, “the Gobble-nator”, and we try to use an ominous voice when mentioning it. Such a powerful sandwich commands both awe and respect. While we admit slapping eveything together to create a thanksgiving sandwich may not be totally rare these days, as this article from the Village Voice shows, it isn’t super common and is a great way to put extra to use. The ingredients used are limited only to what you have on hand or you think your guts can handle. So take a breath, get those leftovers out and build your own Gobble-nator! keep reading...
