So I know Thanksgiving has come and gone and you have already cleared out all the leftovers. But it got me to thinking how can I turn those leftovers into something even better. I mean I know everyone enjoys a classic turkey sandwich the next day. How about turkey pot pie soup instead? Or even better use your mashed sweet potatoes for these biscuits?

Sweet Potato Biscuits the perfect side to any fall or winter meal

Yes you heard that right! You don’t even need to wait until next Thanksgiving to make these bad boys. Grab 2 sweet potatoes and a few other things and you are in business.

Now all you really need is some good ol’ apple butter and a slice of glazed ham. And if you want to get real fancy toss in some fresh chopped herbs like rosemary or thyme.
