Thanksgiving-Leftovers Blintzes

A great way to utilizes all your Thanksgiving leftovers. A truly unique dish in which we first make some crepes, then fill them with some traditional leftovers, roll them up, pan fry them and serve with a cranberry compote.

For the crepes:
1-1/2 cup water
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour batter into a large measuring cup and let rest for an hour at room temperature. The rest is important; it ensures there will be no lumps of flour or air bubbles.

Heat an 8" or 10" non-stick fry pan over a medium-high flame. Brush with canola or vegetable oil. Pour in an 1/8 cup of batter and immediately tilt and swirl the pan around to spread the batter thin around the pan. Cook for only about 45 seconds and transfer to a sheet of waxed paper. Brush pan with oil again and repeat the above process until batter is used up.

To assemble each crepe, lay in about an ounce each of turkey meat, stuffing and mashed potatoes. Flip over the bottom half and tuck in the side flaps. Roll up into a rectangular blintz.

Repeat until all your crepes or all your leftovers are used (but also figure that you only need about 3 blintzes per person).

Heat an 1/8" of oil in a fry pan over medium-high heat and fry the blintzes in batches, seam side down until nice and golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

To serve, place a mound of mashed potatoes on a plate and lean the blintzes on the spuds. Spoon atop the blintzes whole-berry cranberry sauce (aka compote).

Excellent receipe. The best thing thats happened to turkey leftovers since the doggie bag. We usually get sick and tired of the same noodle casserol, turkey bone soup, endless sandwiches, etc. This was a welcome change.

Here's the fiance' and I didn't make a Thanksgiving feast because we had 2 dinners to eat that day. One at his parents and one at my parents! Yes, that's a lot of turkey in one day:) Anyway, I saw your recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers and REALLY wanted it, so I cooked a 61/2 lb. chicken and fixed mashed potatoes and stuffing as sides. The next night I decided to use your recipe for the leftovers. I invited my brother over because we had more than we could eat and we all LOVED it!!!!!! This is now something I'm going to do everytime we have leftovers of this type! THANK YOU SO MUCH:)

I loved this recipe for leftovers. I made it on Sunday and it was a hit. I used gravy on some and Cranberries on others. Both were loved and easy to do.
