Gourmet Gratitude: Part Two

Now, everyone always says that leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving but that doesn't mean you have to eat them as is! Get creative and add some fresh ingredients. You might just prove that old saying true :)

We made some fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes for dinner on Sunday night using my leftover candied pumpkin puree. Breakfast for dinner. Always a good choice.

And with the last of the veggie turkey and stuffing, we made Leftover Quesadillas. I cut up the leftovers into small pieces, sauteed them in olive oil, and added some sliced jalapenos, fresh parsley, smoked paprika, and cayenne pepper. Once it was nice and hot I stuffed it inside a whole wheat tortilla with some sharp white cheddar cheese and a bit more fresh parsley. Topped it off with some chopped romaine and diced tomatoes, and viola!
