While eating all that ridiculously good food for Thanksgiving, it’s unlikely that you’re thinking about breakfast for the following day. If, however, you have a house full of guests, and you don’t feel like grazing or just making sandwiches, these five recipes utilize leftovers in simple, smart ways.

As you can tell from the photos of four of the recipes, eggs are your friend for transforming Thanksgiving leftovers. It’s easy to reheat things in a skillet or make a fancy leftover sandwich and simply put a fried egg on top of the dish. If you’re looking for something lighter, however, the simple parfait is an easy yet delicious alternative.
