One of my favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal is the leftovers for several days after. These Thanksgiving leftover bites are a perfect way to combine the sublime combination of stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and turkey into one compact appetizer sized bite.

The recipe is infinitely scalable so can be increased depending on how many leftovers you have. And it is also versatile which means you can put pieces of turkey in the filing and wrap the ingredients with regular pork bacon instead. Even try pheasant or another favorite meat inside!

Give this a try my friends, and have a magical Thanksgiving week!
