Hello to all the deliciousness this holiday brings especially with the plethora of tasty dishes that beg to be re-purposed! In our house we cherish leftovers! And Thanksgiving is no exception. So Pegs came up with these gluten free patties and that gives a whole new meaning to Thanksgiving leftovers.
Curry Girls Thanksgiving day two starts bright and early. We begin the day putting all the dessert leftovers on the kitchen table. Armed with forks in hand, no plates necessary, we dig into our Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin squares, pecan squares, or the chocolate fluff. Oh the fluff, recipe coming soon. Day two ritual starts with big smiles.
Our family dinner tradition is making cheezy gooey gluten free monte cristos topped with Grandma’s homemade relish. Oh yes! Those sandwiches pair perfectly with our homemade turkey soup that Pegs puts up before she goes to bed. It simmers all night and is ready in the morning.
This year we created another wonderful way to adorn our leftovers. Gluten Free, with dairy free options~Thanksgiving Leftover Patties. They can be 100% vegetarian or you can add in chopped turkey to these delectable quinoa wild rice or stuffing enhanced patties.
For another delicious plant based patty option try our friend Alyssa’s sweet quinoa potato fritter from Simply Quinoa! 5 Ingredients of total yum!
