The meal was prefect, you spent the days with family and friends…….everyone is gone, the dishes are done……….what are you going to do with all those leftovers????
Make a pizza……thats right……a Thanksgiving Pizza! Everything that makes Thanksgiving special, on a pizza…..say what????? No its true!
So, this is more of a method than a recipe. Heres what I did:
Gravy for the sauce. Spread leftover gravy over a purchased or homemade pizza crust.
Then top with leftover mashed potatoes.
Dressing and Turkey go next.
Cranberry sauce….as much or little as you like.
In the oven for 15-20 minutes.
And …….OMG its Thanksgiving……… on a pizza! It was the best thing I have ever done with left overs. You know how when you make some thing, and you take a taste and you are speechless …….this is like that. Tim and I both just kept saying…..omg this is soon good!!!
So take all those leftovers, toss them on a pizza crust and prepared to relive Turkey Day again!!!!
NOTE: You can add any leftovers you want. If you like sweet potatoes, or have leftover veggies…….just toss on what you like best.
Heat oil in medium sauce pan over medium heat. Sauté shallots until softened about 5 minutes. Reducing heat to medium low if necessary. You do not want to brown the shallots. Add ginger and sauté until fragrant another minute or two.
Add cranberries,both sugars,vinegar,orange juice, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add rosemary and simmer for 10 minutes until the cranberries have burst and sauce begins to thicken. Remove from heat and remove cinnamon stick. Stir in orange zest and cool.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 10 days.

This is sure to be a show stopper. It’s a beautiful salad and the taste of the roasted pears will surely be remembered by your guests…….get the recipe here Roasted Pear Salad
I am all for the traditional Pumpkin pie, but not everyone likes pumpkin pie, so why not switch it up and have a Butterfinger pie. This is one of my oldest and most favorite recipes……….make it as a second option. My bet is on the Butterfinger to be gone first…..get the recipe here Butterfingers Pie.
Tim and I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving and hope you will try at least one of our sides for your Thanksgiving fare. Enjoy!
