Thanksgiving is such a fun holiday. I love when we take a break from our daily routine to give thanks. I love all the festivities that go into planning, preparing and eating the meal. 

If you know me, you know I don't like to throw out food and I am always coming up with ways to use my leftovers. Here are some of my suggestions for ways to use your Thanksgiving leftovers

Sweet Potato or Regular Potato Cakes

2 Cups Mashed Potatoes

2 Eggs

3 Scallions - Finely Chopped
