5 Meals from Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

After a long weekend with family and friends, what are you doing with all your leftovers?

Don't get bored with the same ole preparations of the turkey and potatoes. There are a ton of different ways to use your leftovers. Here are 5 of our favorite ideas for making new meals out of your Thanksgiving dinner with wine pairings for a complete meal.

Baked Buffalo Turkey Taquitos (Wine Pairing: Chardonnay - medium body white wine will offset the spice of the buffalo flavor with its lush and fruity tones.)

Thanksgiving Leftover Salad (Wine Pairing: Pinot Grigio - the cool citrus of a fruity white wine will complement the crispness of the salad and the tartness of the cranberries.)

Turkey and Mushroom Risotto (Wine Pairing: Shiraz - the earth tones of a full bodied red wine will go well with smoky seared wild mushrooms and bold cheese of this risotto.)

Turkey Cranberry Monte Cristo (Wine Pairing: Brosecco - this light sparkling white wine gives the perfect lift of acidity and fruit to go with this deliciously heavy grilled sandwich.)

Beer Braised Turkey Tacos (Wine Pairing: Unoaked Cabernet - the rich black fruit tones of this wine will complement the spice while not overpowering the flavors of the turkey.)

What are you doing with all your leftover turkey?
