Thanksgiving Leftovers: Cornbread Turkey Pot Pies

Thanksgiving Leftovers: Cornbread Turkey Pot Pies

If you’re reading this post after your Thanksgiving day meal, I hope you’re feeling just as comfortable as you did yesterday and not overly or uncomfortably full. Because that feeling kind of sucks. Actually, it majorly sucks. Feeling overly full is one of my least favorite feelings. That and excessive sweating. I HATE sweating. How am I so damn sweaty all the time?

If you did keep yourself in check over the food holiday, hopefully you have lots of leftovers so you don’t have to cook much the next couple days after working so damn hard in the kitchen for one meal. But with holiday food leftovers, I can get sick of the same ole’ plate meal after meal. So I made a spin on leftovers to keep things feeling new and exciting at meal time. So here’s the thing with this meal – make it your own! Do you have leftover green bean casserole? Add that! Do you have leftover whipped sweet potatoes? Add that! Add whatever leftover you have and make it your own special turkey pot pie! I don’t think it can really fail. You may be able to prove me wrong, but all Thanksgiving food always taste delicious together so I think you’re safe!
