8 Super Creative Leftover Stuffing Recipes To Make With Thanksgiving Leftovers

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. If you ask me why, it’s the food obviously! The magical time where everyone sits at the same table, family and good friends and when there is so much food being served that we don’t even know where to start and finish. Most of the time there are a lot of leftovers that we throw away or give to our pets. Instead, you can actually use these leftovers and have a decent meal/drink yourself! We bring you 8 creative leftover stuffing recipes you can make with the leftovers of Thanksgiving.
