If you’re looking to take your Thanksgiving Day leftovers to the next level then you’re in luck. Lindsey Granger and Southern Rail’s chef Justin Beckett have three delicious recipes that will tantalize your taste buds and wow your family.

Here are the full recipes:

1.  Stuffing Waffle

Leftover Stuffing

1 to 2 eggs


Cranberry sauce

Cooking Spray

Waffle Iron

Mix your leftover Thanksgiving stuffing with 1 to 2 eggs (depending on how much stuffing you have) to bind the stiffing together.

Pour mixture over a hot waffle iron that has been coated with cooking spray

Cook for about 5 minutes, or until golden brown

Serve with syrup and cranberry sauce.

2.  Quesarrito

Leftover Thanksgiving Dinner

Two large flour tortillas

Cheese of your choice – (Monterrey Jack melts well)

Make a quesadilla on a grill or in a pan on the stove. Make sure not to cook it too crispy, or the tortilla will crack when you roll it.

Dice leftovers into small pieces.

Lay the leftovers on top of the flat quesadilla, running the leftovers down the center of the quesadilla.

Fold the sides in, then tightly roll the tortilla tightly until you have your burrito!

Cut in half and dig in!

3.  Turkey Pot Pie

Store-bought pie crust

Thanksgiving Leftovers

Cast Iron Mini Serving Bowl (or pie baking dish will due)

Dice leftovers into small pieces, and spoon into baking dish

Spoon plenty of gravy in to keep the pie moist

Top with pie crust (egg wash optional)

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown

Top with cranberry sauce for added tartness!
