Leftover Turkey Stuffed Sweet Potatoes

Pin It PIN IT!

Hello, friends! Happy day after Thanksgiving to you! Hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Mine was great! We went to my bff’s (19 years and counting) for a Friendsgiving hosted at her house. The food was amazing and the company was even better.¬†This was the first year that E and I didn’t travel (long and far) for the holiday so it was definitely nice to come home to our bed and sleep!

Now, are you fed up of turkey, mashed potatoes and green beans yet? NO?! Well, I have the perfect recipe for you then! Leftover turkey stuffed sweet potatoes with cranberry sauce.

It’s yesterday’s meal stuffed into a potato. Guys, before you write me off, just try it. Something magical happens when all of those flavors combine. The tartness of the cranberry is a perfect compliment to the mellow flavors of the turkey and sweet potatoes. With each bite you get the best of each world, mashed sweet potatoes, roasted turkey and tart berries. It’s a harmony of the holidays stuffed into one perfect little capsule.

A few of these will easily clear your fridge of Thanksgiving leftovers! In addition to being delicious (and hearty, perfect to hold you over while you fight off soccer moms in Target), this meal is good for you too! Turkey is loaded with protein, cranberries are loaded with disease fighting antioxidants and the sweet potatoes are high in fiber so you’ll stay fuller longer! Because really, who wants to stop shopping to eat at the disgusting, over-priced mall food court anyway?

CLICK HERE FOR THE DELICIOUS RECIPE! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

    Gah you two are too cute. Can you have Friendsgiving in FL next year please? I want to hang. I happen to hate 90% of Thanksgiving foods so I would never put turkey or cranberries or anything in my sweet potatoes, but this would be a DREAM for B... I am sharing this with him!
