So good you can’t wait
On Thanksgiving Day, we reverently take stock of all the things we’re grateful for, share our blessings with family, and usually mind our manners at the table. But the next day when we’re digging into Tupperware containers filled to the brim with all those delectable leftovers? All bets are off! In fact, sometimes we find ourselves standing over the kitchen sink tucking into bowls of stuffing or gnawing on a turkey leg. And that’s how “Sinkie Day” was born.
So named because we often forgo the table to stand over the kitchen sink as we devour what’s left of Thanksgiving dinner, Sinkie Day is a celebration of those humble but delicious leftovers. It’s celebrated the day after American Thanksgiving, but you can enjoy your own version of Sinkie Day after any big dinner, holiday or otherwise!
It’s perfectly fine to simply reheat your leftovers, but this year why not do something a little different on Sinkie Day. Check out these ideas and get inspired to turn your leftovers into something every bit as spectacular as the big meal they originally came from!
- Fried stuffing bites with cranberry pesto
- Potato cakes with fried eggs and turkey-red pepper hash
