I find that I cook almost as much on the day before Thanksgiving as I do on the the big day itself. With two solid days of cooking, I'm usually ready for ordering in pizza or going out to eat when Friday rolls around. When all the guests have left and you realize that no matter how much you ate on Thanksgiving, somehow everyone still needs dinner the next day, that is when this easy skillet recipe comes into play. Simple to make, delicious to taste, this skillet dish is a leftover makeover at its best. Apples, cranberries, stuffing and turkey combine in a single dish that tastes like the best of Thanksgiving. It uses up some leftover turkey, which is a bonus, and includes stuffing, which in my book makes it awesome because I'm always trying to figure out ways to justify a giant bowl of stuffing as a meal. If you want a fast, easy meal that is delicious and will still give you a chance to put your feet up at the end of the day, this is it.
