By now, you really need to use up your Thanksgiving leftovers, and you really need to get out of the kitchen fast, don’t you?

Let’s make dinner with our remaining stuff, and let’s have it on the table in, oh, just a bit over half an hour or so.

Sub anything you like…if you have sautéed spinach but no green beans left, put that in. If you have roasted carrots but no pearl onions left, put those in. If you have a bit of sweet potatoes left, dollop that in. If you have rotisserie chicken instead of turkey, use chicken.

The stuffing is non-negotiable. I’m just getting that on the record right now.

And for me, nothing accompanies this better than a spoonful of World’s Best Cranberry Sauce.

Just because I said so.
