Many of us will once again be baking up a holiday ham and/or a holiday turkey. And while I love the main meal, I think I actually love the leftovers even more!

Don’t get me wrong, I love the time spent with friends and family. But, it’s amazing how a meal that takes hours to prepare can be over in a matter of minutes. So, I like to think about my holiday meal as the launchpad for a week of delicious meals. The leftover turkey transforms into hearty soups, the ham becomes a tasty addition to quiches and sandwiches, and the mashed potatoes morph into creamy potato pancakes. All that extra food becomes the building blocks for quick lunches, creative dinners, and maybe even a few late-night snacks.

But the key to all these extra meals is to make sure you have a few ingredients handy. Some extra bread for sandwiches, broth for soups and an extra jar of Hellmann’s will mean I can whip up something tasty in a flash.

One of the favorites at my house is Leftover Turkey Tetrazzini. This is a such easy way to make the most of any leftover turkey you have handy. It’s so good, you may want to set some turkey aside just so you can add this to your post-holiday menu!
