Give Thanks for Leftover Recipes

Next-day dishes that transcend the turkey sandwich


Complex Thanksgiving menus are what stuff food fantasies are made of.  But we've found recipes that turkey-and-stuffing-waffles chefs around the country have created from the leftovers.  These concoctions will be so good that you'll be tempted to consider starving on Turkey Day in order to save room for the ultimate leftover feast.


Fried Turkey with Stuffing Waffles: Let's talk Turkey!  How about leftover Turkey with Stuffing Waffles, Sweet Potato Hash, Maple Foam, and Cranberry Glaze, a fabulous recipe created by chef Jared Wentworth of Chicago's Longman & Eagle. Get the recipe. 

 Corn Bread Sauce

Corn Bread Sauce: For one glorious day your gravy boat runneth over... and now it's empty.  No one  wants to see your naked turkey breast.  Dress up slices with a warm, hearty sauce from "Bluestem", the Cookbook, a new collection of recipes from Kansas City chefs Colby and Megan Garrelts.   Get the recipe. 


cranberry-sauce Hot and Sour Cranberry Sauce: Gobs of cranberry sauce get old fast.  Chef Alex Diestra of Portland's Saucebox whipped up a recipe that does double duty; gets rid of the sweet stuff and spices up leftover turkey.  Get the recipe. 


Turkey Tartiflette: Your punishment for whipping up a kick-ass Thanksgiving turkey-tartiflette spread is hungry crowds demanding more.  Chef Jean-Jacques Chatelard of McMinnville, Oregon feels your pain. He satiates the cravings of wine country revelers who return to his dining room throughout the long holiday weekend with this decadent dish.  You've got to try his recipe! Get the recipe. 


Bottomless Cocktail Recipes - Stir, Shake and Swill with these favorite mixed drinks


beechers-tonic Thanksgiving by the numbers... one wishbone that didn't go your way, eight hours slaving in the kitchen, 21 prying questions about your personal life, a billion dishes washed and dried.  You could use a liquid remedy to unwind.


Beecher's Tonic: Take this tip...put those extra bottles of Martinelli's to good use. Get recipe 


Ginger Bourbon Apple Cider: Enjoy a kicked-up version with sweet apple foam, ginger tincture, Ginger Bourbon Apple Cider baked apple-flavored bitters, and apple crisps marinated in vanilla-infused apple brandy.  Get recipe. 

Now that you've cooked for two days... take the rest of the month off and hit the gym!

What to Wear When You've Had Too Much Pie - Babette  

Find at CT Weekends


You can look and feel comfortable on Thanksgiving and Christmas, and still be stylish and chic.  And you can have your pie and eat it too!


Babette at CT Weekends Babette, a woman's fashion line made in the USA is committed to dramatic designs, imaginative fabrics and pleated textures in clothing that is effortless to wear.  They are as cute as they are comfy!


A little history: Babette, the clothing designer made her name by reinventing the pleat in the 1980's, and has always been known for her use of creative, innovative and high-tech fabrics from around the globe.  Babette's pleated collection is a line of permanently pleated, hand-washable microfiber pieces that are easy to care for, packable, versatile, and very flattering on different body shapes and sizes. Dressing for work, travel, and leisure is simple and spontaneous, while storing and caring for her pieces is effortless. 


Babette creates 5 collections annually, each exploring variations on a theme - comfortable fabrics designed with her signature pleated look.  Babette regulars love how the clothing transitions from office to cocktail, and maybe some travel in between.  Artist, Topher Delaney recalls buying her first Babette piece and thinking, "This piece of clothing is clever.  It's unusual.  It's intellectually interesting.  And I look terrific when I wear it."  That says it all!   


Check out the great line of Babette at CT Weekends in Cameron Village and add a few pieces to your holiday attire.  And then you can eat pie!

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of  The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about.


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
