I so love Thanksgiving leftovers

So it has been a few weeks since Thanksgiving and I still have a few leftovers in my freezer. I turned the carcass into a nice thick stock and have several quarts in bags stashed in the freezer. Sunday I decided I seriously needed soup, so I started pulling things out.

Thawed a couple quarts of stock and put it into a pot to simmer. I then thawed the leftover mashed potatoes I had to make a potato soup base. From there I fried up some bacon and chopped it up and added it to the soup. For more protean I then added some diced up turkey and let that simmer for a while. Seasoned with salt, pepper and Trader Joe's 21 Spice Salute.

After simmering a while I decided it needed something more, so I added a package of GF potato gnocchi to give some added body and that did the trick.

Nice big bowl for dinner and several days of leftovers for my lunches. So yummy!

Sweet potato pancakes with turkey and gravy

I love holiday leftovers. Made pancakes out of the leftover sweet potato stuff I made and I have some yummy lunches this week. I used brandy in the potatoes originally, didn't feel like buying a bottle of bourbon just for one recipe. I added 3 eggs and a bit over a cup of GF all purpose flour and then onto the electric griddle and VOILA! Great use of leftover side dish.
