I just threw the turkey carcass in the stock pot to make soup stock and recover as much meat as possible. Ain't going in the waffle iron, that's for damn sure.

We didn't have many leftovers this year.. really just turkey and pumpkin pie.  Course, they're mostly gone by now, too.

I tried making stuffing waffles, smothered in turkey and gravy, and my brain, despite knowing what the flavors were, said NOPE and demanded real waffles and syrup.

Waffles are one of those foods that the shape itself determines how you will perceive the taste.

Waffle iron is the coward's way out.

Use the blender instead.

A waffle iron is just a panini press with texture and if you've never waffled leftover pizza you are truly missing out.

Bone broth and doggie kibble-helper.  My wife enjoys making both.

The waffle scones idea wasn't bad.  I might give that a shot with a proper scone recipe and not "hey, I'll wisk some flour into leftover sweet potato cassarole and see what happens."

Britain sussed out their leftover problem a few years' back:

The sailors on the Franklin expedition chose death over meals like this.

I tried waffling some dressing. (shrug) It was OK. The problem is, dressing is both moist (ideally) and dense, so it doesn't cook through as well as waffle batter does. So it doesn't get as crispy on the outside.

I'm guessing dressing would work better in a casserole-type situation, since it is, essentially, a casserole anyway.

I've used leftover mashed potatoes in the waffle iron. The trick is mixing in some eggs to bind them together, and then they're basically potato cakes with lots of little gravy pockets.

This year's Thanksgiving leftover meal was smoked turkey pozole. Made stock out of the carcass, threw in some onion and garlic and a can of hominy, and then shredded up what was left of a couple of smoked turkey legs. Topped with shredded cabbage and lime wedge, and success!

I made a leftover burrito, it was pretty good. Like a leftover sandwich, but with less bread since there were already so many carbs in it. Turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy and a little tiny bit of cranberry sauce. It was pretty good.

If you're still eating thanksgiving leftovers I hope you have pepto on hand.

My mom and her ex-husband had a friend who had his jaw smashed by a crazy person in a 7-11. He came to our house for Thanksgiving with his jaw wired shut, and my mom made him a turkey, stuffing, potatoes and gravy milkshake

I mean, at some point, you gotta do what you can. Probably still beats the hell out of ice cream and Ensures after a while.

But...seriously. I'm way more interested in the details for the first part of that story.

I don't remember the whole story, but it was apparently a large biker guy going through a Vietnam flashback. He repeatedly punched the first person he encountered, who happened to be my mother's very unlucky friend.
