We hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving with your loved ones! Whether you attended a large feast or hosted a small gathering, Thanksgiving is a great time to reflect on and be grateful all of the good things in our lives.

Every year, no matter how many family members I send home with Tupperware, I end up with a fridge full of leftovers. I don’t mind this one bit and look forward to reliving my holiday dinner over and over again! To help you reduce food waste, we’ve rounded up 15 delicious ways to up your holiday leftovers.

If you don’t have time to eat your leftovers before they go bad or simply want to save them for later. Here are some tips for freezing your leftovers:

  • Prevent freezer burn by packing your leftovers in the smallest possible airtight container
  • If using freezer bags, be sure to squeeze out of all the air
  • Skip freezing anything that had a crispy topping like green bean casseroles
  • Freeze sauces like gravy or cranberry sauce in muffin tins or ice cube trays and transfer to a freezer bag
