Hi everyone!! If you’re reading this you made it through another Thanksgiving feast and survived the ensuing food coma. But now you have all those leftovers. What should you do with all that amazing food, even though if your like me you’re already tired of it? Well I got a pretty basic recipe that I already do without leftovers but as I was scouring the internet I found this one that is really similar to my basic one. It has been adapted to use with leftovers: Crispy Mashed Potato & Stuffing Patties.  Enjoy!!
