Cranberry Sauce Pancakes1 of 5
Keep it easy by using a healthy pancake mix like King Arthur gluten-free pancakes—which come out both thick and fluffy—and then top with leftover cranberry sauce. Cranberries are as sweet as jam or syrup, and the icing on the (pan)cake is that they are also chock-full of antioxidants. Kids will love the cheerful red color!
Stuffing Boats2 of 5
Carve out a squash, zucchini or other in-season vegetable and fill with leftover stuffing. Tell your children they are "stuffing boats" and if you have any cocktail toothpicks, stick 'em in for added kid appeal!
Pumpkin Corn Muffins3 of 5
If you stocked up on canned pumpkin puree and didn't bake all the pies you were planning on, grab a box of corn muffin mix (you probably have extra of that, as well, for the cornbread you never actually made) and use the pumpkin instead of the egg and oil ingredients for lower-fat, nutrient-dense morning treats.
Funny Face Sandwiches4 of 5
Put a fresh (and funny) face on those boring leftover turkey or ham sandwiches by getting creative with cookie cutters, garnishes like pickles and olives, and other materials you probably already have in your fridge like carrot sticks and pepper slices.
