Create a bounty of flavors with Thanksgiving leftovers

Some cooks prefer the Thanksgiving meal with its generous platters and long, festive table. Others are impatient for the after-party, the prospect of raiding the fridge at midnight, or the anticipated snack the next day, when the bounty is neatly packed away.

Regardless of where you fall, one thing is certain: Leftovers are a given. Embrace them.

Of course, after you’ve spent the better part of a week preparing for the big meal, you may not be in the mood for another complex cooking project. If it’s just the immediate family having a grazing free-for-all, picking at congealed turkey parts and condiments, alternating with forkfuls of cold stuffing, that’s one thing, and it’s perfectly fine.
