Thanksgiving Leftovers Stromboli

Did you have a nice Thanksgiving? We spent time with family and did our typical gorging on delicious food. As always, we came home with containers packed with leftovers. I wanted to try something extra creative this year, so I wrapped the leftovers in dough to create a yummy stromboli. I will be making this every year. If you still have leftovers in your fridge, give it a try. If not, bookmark it for next year!

By the way, just a quick note about leaving comments. Not just on this website, but on any website. Remember what your mom always told you? If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it? If you feel compelled to write a comment about a recipe you made that didn't turn out or that you didn't enjoy, please be kind. And if you leave a comment on my website that contains the word "disgusting" or is written entirely in caps, it will get deleted. That's all I have to say about that. 

Thaw a 1-pound frozen round of pizza dough according to the package directions. Throw a bit of flour onto a flat surface and, using a rolling pin, roll the dough into a rectangle approximately the size of 14x10 inches.

Working parallel to the shortest sides, place rows of Thanksgiving leftovers onto the dough, keeping a 1-inch border on all sides.

Stuffing, turkey, corn, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberries and gravy...go crazy!

Fold the short ends over, followed by the long ends.

Starting at a short end, carefully roll into a log. Place the log onto a lightly oiled, parchment-lined baking sheet, seam side down. Brush melted butter over the dough.

Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees F. Let cool for 5 minutes.

Cut into thick slices and serve! This is so yummy!

Now scroll down to the comments and tell me something GOOD! How did you celebrate Thanksgiving? What was the favorite dish on your table?

Thanksgiving

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound frozen pizza dough, thawed
  • 3/4 cup shredded cooked turkey
  • 3/4 cup prepared stuffing
  • 3/4 cup mashed potatoes
  • 3/4 cup corn
  • 1/4 cup cranberries
  • 1/4 cup prepared gravy
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
Instructions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray.
  2. Lightly flour a work surface and using a rolling pin, roll dough into a 14x10-inch rectangle. Going parallel to one of the short sides, spread out rows of leftovers in 2-inch rows, leaving a 1-inch border around the dough edges on all sides. Drizzle with gravy.
  3. Fold 1 inch of dough over the filling on the short sides of the rectangle. Fold the long ends over the filling, pinching the dough together at the corners. Start rolling as tightly as possible into a log, starting at one of the short sides. Carefully place the log onto the prepared baking sheet, seam side down. Brush the dough with melted butter.
  4. Bake for 30 minutes in the preheated oven until the bread is golden. Loosen the bottom of stromboli from the parchment paper with a spatula. Transfer to a cutting board and let cool. Cut into slices and serve.
