This started out as a mini round-up of Thanksgiving leftover recipes that don’t involve turkey, but when I realized that three of the five recipes were made with cranberry sauce – and I didn’t want to stop there – that I should just keep cranberry sauce, arguably the best part about Thanksgiving. I always make gobs of the stuff, not only because I love it, but also because I love the leftovers.
