Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipe: Savory Bread Pudding

Reinvent Turkey Leftovers: Turkey and Cranberry Bread Pudding

I don’t mean to toot my own horn here, but if there’s anyone who knows anything about leftovers, it’s me. When my family comes in and tells me there is nothing to eat, I can walk into the same kitchen and cook a meal for eight.

For almost 10 years The Fresh 20 has been helping families use what’s already in the fridge and reinvent it into a completely different meal.

Easy Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

Why have one Thanksgiving when you can have two, right? So much work goes into a beautiful, festive dinner. I’m going to get every last meal out of all those Thanksgiving leftovers!

This cheesy turkey bread pudding is a rich reinvention that easily feeds a crowd.

If you’re looking for more Thanksgiving leftovers recipes, I can’t forget this weeknight chicken soup — sub with turkey — that’s been a go to for years and requested over and over again. My Thanksgiving Cobb Salad is also a crowd pleasing, fresh lunch on post-turkey day for those looking for a lighter option full of favorite fall flavors.

Biscuit Bread Pudding

I make this before I go to bed on Friday for an easy, rewarding Saturday brunch. It’s everything I like about Thanksgiving combined in one dish. It can be made with dinner rolls or even stuffing instead of biscuits but since biscuits are so easy, I double the batch. Add a mimosa or a perfect cup of joe and you are off to a great day!
