Leftover Turkey Ravioli with Gravy
You’ve got piles of Thanksgiving Leftovers crowding your fridge. You could make turkey sandwiches, loads of sandwiches. Or how about taking your turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce and coming up with some inspired thanksgiving leftover recipes?
How was your Thanksgiving?
We had a fairly peaceful day of friends and festivities. The daddies took the bouncy brew of banshies out for a hike in the crisp mountain air, allowing the ladies some alone-time to prepare Thanksgiving dinner.
Gotta say, it was a pretty sweet plan on the part of the daddies.
They had fun tromping through the woods, and we girls casually cooked, cocktails in hand, with no one coming into the kitchen every five minutes asking when we were going to eat.
Sigh… I think we started a new family tradition!
And for a second new family tradition, how about NOT making hoards of turkey sandwiches this year. Instead, let’s turn our Thanksgiving leftovers into something spectacular.
I used my Thanksgiving leftovers to make ravioli.
Leftover turkey, potatoes (sweet or white), cranberry sauce and gravy all came together to make little pockets of pasta goodness.
With the addition of 1 egg, a handful of parmesan cheese, and a package of wonton wrappers, I had a Round Two dinner that was fun for the kids to make and a hit at the table.
Simply place a teaspoon of potatoes in the middle of the wonton wrapper, followed by a little chunk of turkey and a scant amount of cranberry sauce.
Then brush the edges with egg wash and fold like a package. Boil for a couple minutes and serve with gravy.
If you ran out of gravy yesterday, this turkey ravioli would be lovely with a little brown butter instead.
I’m not the only one offering fantastic Thanksgiving leftover recipes today.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Ravioli
1 cup mashed sweet potatoes or white potatoes
1 cup chopped turkey meat
1/4 cup cranberry relish
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
12 oz. package wonton wrappers
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Mix the Parmesan cheese into the mashed potatoes.
Place a scant teaspoon of potatoes in the center of each wonton wrapper, followed by a chunk of turkey and a 1/4 teaspoon of cranberry relish.
Whisk the egg with 1 tablespoon of water. Brush the egg wash around the edges of each wonton wrapper. Fold the opposite corners over the center, then bring the other corner to the center and press the corners firmly down. *Any gaps will allow water to wash your filling away.
Carefully place the ravioli in the boiling water and cook for 1-2 minutes.
Drain an serve with warm turkey gravy or brown butter.
