Football Friday Tailgate Treats Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition 2022

Happy Football Friday.  Today we have Football Friday Tailgate Treats: Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition 2022. Did you save last week’s Toasty and Tasty Treats? Since it is the Friday after Thanksgiving and last year’s article was a hit I thought we should find more tasty tailgate treats to make from your Turkey Day leftovers.   I hope you enjoy the tasty treats and the all games this weekend.

Football Friday Tailgate Treats: Thanksgiving Leftovers Edition 2022

Creamy Corn Dip

  • 16 Oz Whole Kernel Corn, No Salt
  • 3 Oz H‑E‑B Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1 cup(s) tomato, diced
  • 1/4 Tsp chili powder


  1. In a saucepan, mix all ingredients on the stove over medium heat until heated through.
  2. Add salt and pepper and serve warm.

Fried Stuffing Bites with Cranberry Sauce Pesto



  1. Preheat oil to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut leftover stuffing into bite-sized cubes and set aside. In a small bowl whisk eggs and milk. Coat each stuffing bite with this egg wash, then dredge in the bread crumbs until fully coated and set aside.
  3. In a food processor blend cranberry sauce, pepper, and walnuts and set aside.
  4. Once the oil is at temperature fry each piece of stuffing until golden brown about 4 minutes. Drain on a paper towel and serve with cranberry pesto.

Day-After Dip

The easiest recipe ever.

  1. Puree a can of white beans in a food processor with the following ingredients
  2. 1 or 2 leftover peeled roasted sweet potatoes,
  3. 1/4 cup olive oil,
  4. 1/2 cup grated parmesan, salt, and pepper.
  5. Garnish with toasted nuts and serve with crackers.

Leftover Thanksgiving Pull-Apart Sliders



  1. Combine the gravy and turkey in a medium saucepan and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the gravy is hot and bubbling, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn off the heat, cover, and set aside.
  2. Put a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the broiler.
  3. Split the attached dinner rolls in half horizontally, keeping them attached. Put the top and bottom halves cut side up on a baking sheet. Cover the bottom half with the stuffing. Broil until toasted, 1 to 3 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  5. Spread the cut side of the roll tops with cranberry sauce. Cover the stuffing with mashed potatoes, then use the back of a small spoon to make 12 wells (1 for each slider) in the potatoes. Spoon the turkey and gravy into the wells (it will spill over the wells but this is okay) then cover with overlapping slices of provolone. Cover with the roll tops, then brush the tops with melted butter. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
  6. Bake until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
