The day after Thanksgiving sandwiches are a staple, as is turkey soup, but sometimes you're just in the mood for something a bite more morning friendly. Enter the Thanksbenedict. Cakes made out of leftover stuffing, then lightly breaded and fried are topped with sliced turkey, a poached egg, and finally gravy and cranberry sauce. A meal that unites all the classic Thanksgiving elements (and a poached egg) in one festive brunch.

Although all of the classic Thanksgiving sides work well alongside this meal, my personal favorites are Brussels sprouts and green bean casserole. But spaghetti squash has also worked its way into my heart, especially with a good slather of butter, and maybe even a drizzle of maple syrup. Serve with hot coffee, and any leftover sparkling wine.
