I love Thanksgiving for many reasons: the food, gathering with family, the feeling of warmth, security, and plenty. But one of the best things about Thanksgiving happens the day after: leftovers! These Thanksgiving leftover recipes are fabulous.

Leftover turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, and gravy can be turned into some wonderful recipes. And you don't just have to make plain old turkey sandwiches either! What about Cranberry Meatballs, Sweet Potato Bread, or Turkey Club Pizza? You'll find these recipes and dozens more in the articles below.

Make sure to store your leftovers properly. Refrigerate food within 2 hours of its removal from the oven, microwave, or crockpot. Cover leftovers tightly so flavors don't transfer. And use the leftovers within two or three days. If there's anything left after that time, freeze it!

Happy Thanksgiving!
