If Thursday left you feeling thankful -- emphasis on the full -- and your feast yielded ample Thanksgiving leftovers here are a couple of recipes to transform the turkey, stuffing and pie into fresh and delicious new dishes.
Chef George Duran joined "Good Morning America" on Saturday to share his three favorite uses for leftovers.
Check out his full recipes below for Thanksgiving tacos, turkey soup with stuffing balls, and a cake made from leftover pie.
Thanksgiving Leftover Tacos
3/4 cups leftover turkey, pulled
Leftover mashed potatoes
4 corn or flour tortillas
1 cup grated Tex-Mex cheese mix
Pre-heat all of your leftover ingredients, except the cranberry sauce, and set them aside.
Preheat a nonstick griddle or saute pan on medium heat and then disperse cheese throughout evenly. Once the cheese is melted and bubbling, add your corn or flour tortillas. Allow cheese to crisp on the tortillas.
Build your tacos with the leftover ingredients as you prefer and top with cranberry sauce.
Serve with a small bowl of warm gravy to dip in. Makes 4 tacos.
Herbed Thanksgiving Leftover Soup
2 cups leftover stuffing
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup matzo meal or breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup finely chopped onions
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped carrots
3 cubes Dorot Gardens Frozen Garlic
3 cubes Dorot Gardens Frozen Basil
3 cubes Dorot Gardens Frozen Cilantro
5 cups chicken stock
1 cup leftover cooked turkey, chopped
Salt and pepper
Mix stuffing with beaten eggs and matzo meal until combined. Use wet hands to form golf ball-sized balls and refrigerate covered for about an hour.
In the meantime, saute onions, celery and carrots with butter in a large sauce pan for 2-3 minutes until softened. Add frozen garlic, basil and cilantro, and cook until dissolved. Pour in chicken stock and bring to a simmer.
Gently add stuffing balls to soup and simmer gently for 20-30 minutes until fully cooked. Add chopped turkey and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Leftover Pie Invisible Apple Cake
1 large slice leftover pie of your choice
2/3 cup milk, plus more if needed
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar, plus more for topping
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4-5 apples, peeled and cored and sliced very thinly
Pre-heat your oven to 350 F and line a loaf pan with parchment paper to help you remove the cake easily.
Place all of the ingredients except the apples in a blender and blend until smooth. It should be a like a thin batter consistency. Add more milk if needed.
Place sliced apples in a bowl and pour batter on top. Gently mix the batter without breaking the slices of apple and then carefully arrange them in the loaf pan.
Sprinkle with sugar on top and bake for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes before removing from pan and slicing.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
