Thanksgiving Leftover Treats

I always look forward to Thanksgiving leftovers, but by the third day of eating mashed potatoes for every meal things can get a little boring.

Here is a quick and easy recipe to help you use up your Thanksgiving leftovers, or leftovers at any time of the year, and indulge your dog in an extra yummy treat.


  • ¼ C. Mashed potatoes, plain or sweet
  • ½ C. Turkey and/or ham, finely diced
  • 1 Tsp. gravy
  • ¼ C. Finely blended breadcrumbs
  • ½ Egg
  • 1 Tbsp. Whole wheat or all-purpose flour

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment or a silicone baking mat.
  2. If you don’t have breadcrumbs you can substitute flour, or place a slice of bread in the blender and then spread onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until dry at 300 F.
  3. In a bowl, combine all ingredients until a sticky but rollable dough forms.
  4. Shape teaspoon sized balls and place onto the cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the balls are firmly set and beginning to brown.
  6. Store in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for up to two months.
