Thanksgiving is a day on which we sit around the dinner table, unified as Americans. That means a lot of food.

That also means a lot of leftovers.

The issue of Thanksgiving leftovers is so prevalent, a single Google search of the term will trigger an avalanche of websites and catalogs.

With the looming threat of spoiled food only a couple days behind, Thanksgiving probably seems more of a burden than a celebration.

But fear not, the Catamount has got you covered.

Behold, the greatest Thanksgiving Leftover recipes of our time.
