Thanksgiving Leftovers

The time of year has arrived that’s busy and delicious for everyone. With the big Thanksgiving feast out of the way, we all have to start thinking about what to do with all these leftovers. For us, it’s super easy to devour these leftovers because we get to enjoy them again and again!

We absolutely love Thanksgiving leftovers and actually cook an extra big Thanksgiving dinner just so we have can have a ton of them. So before and at the end of the Black Friday frenzy, we dive into the fridge for delicious comfort and love coming up with different and creative ways to devour our favorite dishes and fixings.

Best of all, we want an easy clean up, especially after a big cooking day, and our KitchenAid® Induction Cooktop is super easy to clean and cooks up multiple dishes at once. One of the best parts about cooking on the Induction Cooktop is that not only does it heat up our gorgeous KitchenAid® Tri-Ply Copper Cookware extremely quickly, it takes minutes to wipe down and clean. Hooray for a quick and easy clean up!

The Induction Cooktop always helps us achieve our favorite way of eating a fried egg: with crisp edges and a runny yolk. This mashed potato bowl has everything everyone loves about Thanksgiving.

After your hectic Black Friday, come home to an awesome and satisfying turkey and cranberry grilled cheese sandwich. It’s one of our go-to leftover meals that never fails to please. Everyone loves a good grilled cheese, but when it’s stuffed with turkey and sweet and tangy cranberry sauce, it’s like a dream leftover meal. Each bite reminds us of why we love this season so much, and it’s super quick to assemble.

There’s magic that happens on the crust of the grilled cheese when cooked on the Induction Cooktop. The heat is evenly distributed and helps the sandwich cook slowly and perfectly to get that gorgeous, consistent and caramelized crust.
