The Keto Guide to Elevating your Thanksgiving Leftovers
Have a fridge full of Thanksgiving leftovers and need some help giving them a boost? We've got you covered. Take what's left of your Thanksgiving classics and elevate them with some of the recommendations below!
Leftover: Turkey or Ham
How to elevate: Looking for something more creative than the traditional Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches? Try incorporating either of these proteins into an omelet or some quiche cups for a hearty breakfast! Looking for lunch? Try this turkey Waldorf salad, or add some ham or turkey to a lettuce wrap for a quick on-the-go lunch! Looking for something more wholesome? Check out this recipe to make a play on turkey-pie with this delicious soup!
Leftover: Meat and Cheese Board
How to elevate: Make an easy snack by taking some leftover salami or prosciutto and wrapping it into little rolls with some cheese. Looking for something a little more chic? Try these antipasti skewers for a great appetizer that'll be sure to wow your dinner guests!
Leftover: Deviled or Hard-Boiled Eggs
How to elevate: Both deviled and hard-boiled eggs are a perfect keto-friendly snack when you need a little protein. Take your deviled eggs to the next level by heightening a veggie salad! Remove the filling from four deviled eggs, and mix it with a tablespoon of dijon mustard, a tablespoon of olive oil, and a splash of balsamic vinegar to make a hearty salad dressing. Dice up the remaining egg and add it to your salad. Have some leftover hard-boiled eggs? Dice them up and add them to a salad, too!
Leftover: Cheeseball or Spinach Dip
How to elevate: A cheeseball is another flavorful and hearty source of fat and protein to elevate many dishes. Swap out your mayonnaise for a tablespoon of your cheese ball to add a new flavor combo to your lettuce wrap, elevate some sauteed veggies by adding a tablespoon of your cheese ball to your saute, or spread some of your cheeseball on cucumber slices or celery for a play on hummus. Lastly, try this baked chicken recipe, and use your remaining cheese ball or spinach dip as the filling!
Leftover: Broccoli or Cauliflower
How to elevate: Try our favorite keto-friendly Broccoli Cheddar Soup with your leftover broccoli, or these stir-fried broccoli stems. Have some leftover roasted cauliflower? Try our go-to mashed cauliflower, or turn your mash into our play on potato cakes! Roll your mashed cauliflower into three-inch rounds, then place them in a saute pan with some melted butter, and cook on each side for two minutes. Serve with chives and sour cream for a play on the traditional mashed-potato cake!
