Aside from the meal itself, the best part of Thanksgiving is all of the leftovers. Welcome to a post-holiday week where the only plans to cook dinner consist of a plate and the microwave. But after a while, those leftovers can get boring. That's why The Food Channel has created this clever recipe to re-engineer those leftovers into delicious turkey sliders.

You can replace the fontina cheese with mild provolone, gruyere, and gouda cheeses. You can also use cream cheese instead of the fontina cheese and serve them cold.
