What’s not to love about Thanksgiving leftovers?!? They’re almost as delicious as Thanksgiving dinner! This year, however, instead of turkey soup or casserole, why not give our Leftover Dumplings a go? One of our favorite Thanksgiving traditions is making them the next morning with our overnight guests and freezing them for future use. (Enjoying turkey or sweet potato dumplings in January is a million times better than a week of turkey sandwiches in November!)

We mince and season the leftovers (turkey, mashed and sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, etc., not combined), place one tablespoon in the center of a dumpling wrapper, moisten the edge of one half of the wrapper, and crimp the two sides together. The dumplings are then placed on parchment paper-lined baking sheets and transferred to the freezer. (Once frozen, the dumplings can be stored more compactly in zip-top freezer bags.) Steam or pan fry, and enjoy!
