This might just be the best day of the year.

Thanksgiving Leftover Breakfast Biscuits I

Because you realize that your fridge is most likely packed to the brim with leftovers and um, what is better than mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing… AGAIN?

Nothing. That’s what.

I’m sort of a T-Day leftover purist in that I prefer my mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing warm and piled on my plate quite similarly to how they were less than 24 hours ago, but that’s just dinner. Alright. Maybe lunch. I mean we have alllll these leftovers so why not do breakfast too?

Or maybe that’s when you eat the leftover pie. I dunno.

And it’s not like this just has to be breakfast. It can totally be a snack. Or whatever.

If it isn’t your thing, I highly suggest some turkey BLT tacos or this thanksgiving leftover breakfast hash with holy crap! mashed cheddar potato pancakes. Which can also be a snack. Or lunch. Or everything because it’s obnoxiously perfect.

Uh, yeah. Do it.

    I could grab that right off the screen. Looks delicious, and I wish it was waiting for me in the kitchen.
    I’m a leftover purist too, it’s like a 2nd chance to taste everything, can’t wait for lunch :)

    Sounds amazing!! I didn’t get to make my turkey yesterday! My Husband decided to paint his car and my roasting pan was in the garage so I couldn’t get it!! Stinky! I still have my bird, so I’ll probably make him this weekend!!! I want turkey leftovers!!

    I am of the philosophy that anything with a gooey egg is that much better!

    These look fantastic Jess! Leftovers are one of the best parts of Thanksgiving and even though ours was last month, I’m still very tempted to roast another turkey (ok, maybe just turkey breasts) so that I can make turkey sandwiches, soups, and THESE breakfast sandwiches!

    Wish I was eating this for breakfast right now! I think I am going to start celebrating Canadian and American Thanksgiving.

    Looks sooo GOOD. And I’m about to dive into the refrigerator for breakfast, so perfect timing ;)

    I am in Canada so sadly I have no thanksgiving leftovers today either… however I’m currently imagining how it would taste in my mind, and it’s AMAZING

    Mandie @ Oh So Decadent — November 23, 2012 @ 11:39 am

    These look beyond amazing. I cannot with that egg yolk in your last photo, it’s making my mouth water. I agree with you, I’m a Thanksgiving purest when it comes to leftovers. I want them all on my plate the same way I had them yesterday, but this breakfast looks to-die-for!

    Amanda — November 23, 2012 @ 12:23 pm I was JUST thinking about what I should make for breakfast. This is perfection.

    You make the best looking poached eggs – It’s like a perfect little cloud puff on top of that nice stack! Hope you had a great holiday!

    Speaking of obnoxiously perfect, your eggs always look outrageously incredible. Criiiiipes. Now I’m singing the incredible edible egg song. Kill me.

    Ashley — November 25, 2012 @ 6:05 pm

    you and I think the same about leftovers… maybe you should make a second blog JUST on leftovers and recreating them to be just as good as the day before :)
