Thanksgiving dinner is a tradition that we spend all year looking forward to. Any holiday that gives us an excuse to break out our stretchy pants is a great one. However, this leaves us with a few downsides that we have to deal with. No, we are not talking about the in-laws who always want to stay for an extra day or two. We are talking about all of the leftovers we have to deal with for weeks to come.

First of all, we never know what to do with all of the leftover food. Sure, we could have fried turkey a couple of times but that is going to lose its novelty pretty quickly.

We need a backup plan!

Fortunately, Chowhound has just that.

We never would have thought of this one on our own. It’s one of the most brilliant usages for leftover stuffing that we have ever come across.

Anyone who is tired of watching the stuffing sit in the back of the fridge until it is time to awkwardly dump it out will love this one. In fact, we might just go ahead and make a little bit of extra stuffing this year.
