Make up for the fact you spend every Thanksgiving turducking your family to watch football by turning what's left of their big meal into some sweet dishes, created by even sweeter Seattle chefs.
Fried Thanksgiving Cakes w/ Cranberry Sage Mayo
From Jason Wilson, Crush
The 2010 James Beard award winner has turned out a recipe that calls for combining spare turkey, and other delectable T-day extras, with an egg and breadcrumbs, and then forming them into little fry-able cakes, which Marie Antoinette would implore you let everyone eat, if you hadn't just burned that pompous Austrian chick's castle down.
This dude was on Martha Stewart, so you know this recipe will be criminally good
Turkey Noodle Casserole
From Maria Hines, Tilth and the Golden Beetle
Another James Beard winner's turned the thing most likely to be left alone on the 24th, vegetables, into something awesome by casseroling 'em with turkey, gravy, and exactly one not-leftover ingredient; pasta, as long as that's not too big a penne in the ass.
Ms. Stewart would kill to know what makes this thing so good. Hint: it's the gravy.
Sweet Potato Gnocchi
From Seis Kamimura, Munchbar
This recipe boasts step-by-step instructions for turning your uneaten sweet potatoes, and just four other super-simple ingredients, into fresh pasta dough, and also works as a recipe for happiness if you ignore everything but the part where it says "do not overwork".
Martha probably wouldn't eat this dough -- she'll need it for bail -- but you def should
