Today’s Special: Lively Leftovers

Clockwise from top left: Thanksgiving cupcakes by Fêtette, leftover-stuffed maki rolls by Sushi Day, and the Gobblerito by Mad Mex.

Thanksgiving may have come and gone, but an abundance of leftovers remain stacked in your fridge. Instead of open-faced sandwiches and turkey pot pies, try adding some creativity to your day-after cuisine! ModCloth’s Pittsburgh office will be all wrapped up in recreating the Gobblerito — a Thanksgiving burrito that’s served at Mad Mex, one of our favorite regional restaurants. Fêtette fit a holiday feast into one adorable morsel — a cupcake! This pint-sized treat is a fun way to snack through small portions of lingering leftovers, as are the maki rolls Allison’s cooking up on Sushi Day! She’s swapped seafood with candied yams, turkey, and cranberry sauce. Down to your last bites of stuffing? Get out your rice cooker, and give your leftovers a tempting twist!

What are your favorite ways to enjoy luscious holiday leftovers?

    These all sound so yummy! I love to mix all of my leftovers into a bowl like casserole: stuffing, turkey, mashed taters, corn, the works. Then I pile on some gravy and go nuts. Delishly lazy!

    What a fun way to fix Thanksgiving leftovers! I literally just stuck everything in a tin pan and baked it in the oven. Not creative but tasted just as good from the first dinner. :)

    I had two Thanksgiving dinners back in October. The first all of our family came to our house, and left all of the food there for us to manage. Then we promptly put all of our leftovers into clean, pretty dishes and brought them to our next dinner (at a relative’s house) and left THEM with all of the food. Brilliant move :) Otherwise I would’ve ended up with seven extra pumpkin pies on my hips.
