Gird your loins, my friends. Thanksgiving came and went — and just when you thought this holiday business was done, it’s time to face your biggest challenge yet: Finishing the leftovers.

Don’t get me wrong — I love a good turkey sandwich every now and again. All you need is an old dinner roll, spread with cranberry sauce and piled high with the good stuff, and you can pretend like you’re still on holiday, even if it’s just lunch hour at the office. But then, you get to that fourth sandwich, and you simply can’t go on. The turkey! The stuffing! The green bean casserole! Everything that once seemed glorious now makes you weep for the days of kale salads and green juice.

We’re here to help. Sure, go ahead and have that first sandwich, but after that, all bets are off. This year, we pulled every trick in the leftovers book, from classic pot pie to the Hawaiian-inspired flatbread you did not see coming. Open up that fridge and dig out the turkey. You can do this.
