Having a ton of leftovers after Thanksgiving is inevitable. But what can folks do to keep from getting bored of the same meal, everyday?

Chef Steve Stogdill, owner of Victorian Pantry in Granger joined the 16 Saturday morning crew and gave a few pointers on how to revamp leftovers.

Thanksgiving Leftover Recipe:
12 Servings

3-4 lbs. - Turkey
2 c. - Spuds (roasted or mashed)
2 c. - Sweet Spuds (roasted or mashed casserole)
2 c. - Stuffing
1 c. - Carrots
1 c. - Cranberry Relish
12 ea. - Puff Pastry 4"x4"
1 c. - Greek Yogurt
0.5 c. - Pistachios
1 T. - Curry
0.5 ea. - Apple
2 c. - Kale, fine chopped
1 c. - Hummus
0.5 lbs. - Goat Cheese
1 ea. - Avocado
1 bunch - Basil
1 ea. - Pomegranate

The first six ingredients are typical leftovers. You might have green beans, corn and more. Place puff pastry squares ob a baking pan, add enough leftover ingredients, then add the non-seasonal ingredients which enhance the recipe. This way, you are not just eating leftovers again and again with the same flavor. These latter ingredients give nice flavor and texture.

Fold one corner of pastry to the opposite corner and pinch to seal with a fork. Brush with olive oil and bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

After cooled, place in freezer bags and you have meals ready! Then you can bake or reheat in the microwave. Recipe can also be done with fillings in a casserole covered by puff.
