Thanksgiving is about many things — being grateful, spending time with family, enjoying time off — but mostly, it’s about food. Every November, families nationwide go all-out for their festive Thanksgiving feast, and more often than not, they will prepare far more than they need and end up with a fridge full of leftovers.
Of course, leftover Thanksgiving food is just as delicious the next day, but eating turkey and stuffing all week can get old pretty quickly. Thankfully, there are many ways to use your leftovers to create an entirely new meal — even for breakfast!
You may not typically think of turkey as a morning meat, but the Thanksgiving staple is actually a delicious addition to a breakfast scramble. Even if you don’t have any leftover turkey or don’t want to use it in your scramble, other leftovers like sweet potatoes, green beans, and corn make a flavorful addition to this easy Thanksgiving leftover scramble.
All you’ll need to make a leftovers scramble is a carton of Eggland’s Best eggs and some milk, plus whatever leftovers you want to add. With just two additional ingredients, this is a cheap, easy, and nutritious way to revamp your Thanksgiving leftovers!
