WATERTOWN, N.Y. (WWNY) - There can be more to Thanksgiving dinner leftovers than turkey sandwiches.

Chef Chris Manning shows us ways to any food lingering after the big meal.

He shows us a turkey tetrazzini and a dressing made from canned cranberry sauce that he puts on a Waldorf-style salad he made with turkey, walnuts, Swiss cheese, apples, grapes, celery, blueberries, and greens.

He has more tips in the video.

Turkey tetrazzini

- 2 slices cooked bacon, diced

- 2 cups diced turkey

- 1/4 cup heavy cream or half and half

- 1 cup sour cream

- 8 ounces cooked pasta

Cranberry dressing
