We are always looking for creative ways to use our Thanksgiving leftovers. We love a good turkey and cranberry sandwich, but let’s be honest, we’re a bit bored with it. After years of eating nothing but leftover sandwiches, we decided to experiment with other ways to use up those leftovers. Thanksgiving leftover pizza sure was fun, but we are even more excited about leftover egg rolls. Customize your egg rolls to your favorite Thanksgiving food, and they are sure to be a hit!
