No one likes to see food go to waste, but the same-old-same-old Thanksgiving leftover recipes are tired. Let them retire and try out some of the out-of-the-box recipes we’ve gathered.

So, you had family in for the holidays and you need to feed them breakfast. Don’t worry about making a special trip to the grocery store in the middle of Black Friday traffic. You have everything you need in your fridge. These Baked Eggs in Stuffing Cups are an easy and satisfying way to start the day. Add some Turkey Hash Patties and everyone will thank you. Just need something for a quick bite with your coffee? Make this Pecan and Sweet Potato Bread for an easy breakfast treat that’s great if you’re on the go.

Now that breakfast is taken care of, what about lunch? That’s easy, but don’t worry, a played-out turkey sandwich is nowhere in sight. Curried Turkey Salad is a great way to spice up an old favorite. Pair with a fruity and floral Missouri Traminette. Treat yourself to a decadent American classic with a twist… a Monte Cristo Sandwich, matched perfectly with a semi-sweet Vignoles. This recipe is especially great for families that have both turkey and ham at their holiday feasts.

It’s getting chillier out there. Warm up with this Jerk Turkey Chili, complemented by a fruity, subtle Chambourcin. The slightly more adventurous Turkey Posole a la Guerita provides a completely unique flavor. You won’t even recognize you’re eating leftovers. Pair with a Vignoles to calm the heat.

Don’t let those leftovers sit in your fridge taking up space and taunting you every time you open the door. Reinvent them with these delicious recipes.

Missouri wine pairs well with your leftovers!
