A&amp;E compiled and tested three nontraditional recipes for your traditional Thanksgiving leftovers.

However, there&rsquo;s one thing that remains polarizing: How do you eat the leftovers?<o:p></o:p></p> <p class="BodyA">Some people will throw the pizza in the microwave, reanimating the slice into a Frankenstein&rsquo;s monster of the meal it was the night before. Others prefer it cold, which is an entirely different beast.<o:p></o:p></p> <p><a href="http://mndaily.com/ae/2015/11/24/u%E2%80%99s-best-cold-pizza" target="_blank">read more</a></p> A&E Food Wed, 25 Nov 2015 03:42:03 +0000 jbekker@mndaily.com 103786 at http://mndaily.com
