Transform your Thanksgiving leftovers into a delicious day-after snack or meal with this easy recipe
Move over, open-face turkey sandwich. Here’s a super creative way to use up all those delicious Thanksgiving leftovers that’s almost as good as the holiday meal itself. We’ve created a Thanksgiving leftovers empanada that perfectly utilizes excess turkey and cranberry sauce.
Roll out store-bought pie dough (likely another leftover item from your Thanksgiving dessert endeavors) and cut into rounds. Fill each circle with shredded turkey, chives, and cranberry sauce. Fold over and seal the edges using a fork to crimp. Brush with egg wash and bake.
Set out empanadas with extra chives for sprinkling on top, as well as cranberry sauce and gravy for dipping. Enjoy as an appetizer, or eat a few for a meal.
