Thanksgiving is traditionally a day of feast, which means you're likely to have tons of leftovers in your fridge. Don't let them go to waste!

Don't let them go to waste! Amanda Downing, Executive Chef at Rockit Bar & Grill and Rockit Burger Bar, came into our ABC7 Eyewitness News studio to show us how to make turkey pot pie and more.

Chef Amanda's Recipes:

Stuffing Tots
Ingredients:
1 cup all purpose flour
2 whole eggs, beaten
Pinch kosher salt
Pinch ground black pepper
3 cups leftover stuffing, chilled
3 cups vegetable oil for frying.
1 cup leftover turkey gravy

Preparation:
In a heavy saucepan, heat the vegetable oil to 350 degrees.
Season flour with the salt and pepper and put in a shallow dish.
Put the beaten eggs in a separate shallow dish.
Cut chilled stuffing into 1" cubes.
Working with a few pieces at a time, toss the stuffing cubes in the seasoned flour, then dip them into egg and then toss again with flour until coated, set aside on a plate.
Repeat with remaining pieces.
Working in batches, carefully lower flour coated stuffing pieces into hot oil, turning once, fry for approximately 1-2 minutes until golden and crisp.
Drain on a paper towel lined plate, repeat with remaining prices.
Heat gravy, serve with stuffing tots for dipping!

1/2 cup diced carrots, blanched
1/2 cup green peas
1/2 cup pearl onions, blanched
