Because the main leftover from T-day is usually just painful memories of a stolen childhood, at least do something fun with the extra food, thanks to these day-after recipes from some of the Hub's top chefs.
Five Spice Pulled Turkey
From Michael Wang, Fóumami Asian Sandwich Bar
Pretend you're spending the day after drifting away in a Tokyo geisha house rather than in your house watching Tokyo Drift thanks to this easy Asian pulled turkey twist that rocks cucumber/soy sauce, and can be thrown on rice, salad, or in a sammie.
After you watch the informative/entertaining how-to video, print out the recipe right here!
Black Friday Surprise Pizza
From Derek Clough, Foundry on Elm
This innovative take on 'za replaces cranberry for tomato sauce before piling the dough with the full monty of leftovers, from turkey, stuffing, and sweet potatoes, to sliced apples, which are, according to everything you've Red, Delicious (sorry).
Btw, Dom DeLuise totally ate this pizza in Cannonball Run II! Finally see how it's made.
From Brian Roche, Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar
Give that day-old gobbler (and the leftover turkey too!) a little South of the Border sass by whipping up a plate of these Back Bay Mexican honcho's tasty three-pepper tacos, which are usually only found on Spice Girls (NOT sorry).
You barely even have to know your way around the kitchen to pull these puppies off. Seriously, don't be scared.
The Smashed Pumpkin
From Marc Kadish, Sunset Grill & Tap
Not just what fans thought Billy Corgan was when he dated Tila Tequila, this dessert-turned-boozy-treat involves fortifying leftover pie with shots of vodka, Kahlua, and Baileys before topping it off with alcoholic whipped cream.
You love pie, you love Kahlua, what's not to like about this drink? Make it now, or next Friday, or whenever.
