Quick Tips

Get Creative With Thanksgiving Leftovers

Don’t like seeing good food go to waste? As you peruse the online Black Friday deals from your screens, you can also plot out some inventive new ways to incorporate the remaining elements of yesterday’s bacchanale into your meal plan. Try a turkey chili or turkey enchilada, Taste of Home says, or a sweet potato pudding. Delish suggests mashed potato fritters, stuffing waffles or a pumpkin pie milkshake. And there is absolutely nothing at wrong with the classic roast turkey sandwich — with or without a schmear of horseradish cranberry relish or dollop of gravy. #ThanksgivingTips

The Easiest Thanksgiving Feasts

Small #Thanksgiving gatherings are an easy lift even at the last minute if you can adjust expectations. You can cook a turkey breast instead of a whole bird, says Ahead of Tyme, or serve a squash bisque that take minutes to prepare. The point is to feast and celebrate together, so include a few classic, seasonal ingredients on the menu and everyone should be satisfied. And if you want the easiest possible solution, dine out — many chains will be open on Thanksgiving and serving feasts, fancy or frugal. And who wouldn’t enjoy a good pizza? #ThankgivingTips

Outsource the Thanksgiving Sides

Hosting a Thanksgiving feast can be a monumental task. To ease the burden, do yourself a favor and have guests supply some dishes potluck-style. Allrecipes suggests handling the turkey and gravy yourself, so that the star of the show isn’t suddenly a no-show. Let your guests supply sides such as mashed potatoes, casseroles, salads, rolls (store-bought are fine), pie and beverages. Coordinate correctly, and you can concentrate on roasting the bird and any other specialties you want to make, as well as staging your table for a magical, filling feast. #ThanksgivingTips

Is Your Turkey Oven-Ready?

If you’re just getting started on your Thanksgiving feast, it’s already too late to thaw a frozen bird in the refrigerator. All is not lost if you can’t find a fresh one, though! Just submerge that packaged #turkey in ice water and check the water every 30 minutes to ensure that the temperature doesn’t rise above 40 degrees, Epicurious says. A 15-pound bird should be ready to go into the oven in about 8 hours. Use that time — and the 4+ hours’ roasting time — to make green bean casserole and a pumpkin pie, and your feast will be (nearly) complete! #ThanksgivingTips
