But first, let me just say how awesome every recipe submitted was. I made and ate all of them, and was floored by the level of creativity and deliciousness. Thank you for sharing your recipes with me, I thoroughly enjoyed them! And now for the winner:
It's Kelly Artz and her delicious Thanksgiving Wontons with Cranberry Dipping sauce! I love that her recipe is not only unrecognizable as a left over meal, but it also utilizes three ingredients from the holiday table: turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce. It's easy to put together and perfect for next day appetizers. The cranberry sauce acts as the perfect counterpoint to the fatty crunch of the wontons, and the scallions add a bite of spice. I even tried mixing a little sriracha to the wonton filling for extra heat. Fantastic job, Kelly!
Below, I also included the runners-up: Mandy from Gourmet Mom on the Go's South Western take on leftovers, and Andrew Hyatt's Left Over Hash. Both were absolutely delicious, and a great way to enjoy the remnants of Holiday gluttony. They will be receiving a Kitchy Kitchen Holiday package filled with tons of goodies. Thank you again for all of your submissions, I had the best time eating and cooking my way through them. Happy Holidays!
