This is now my favorite way to enjoy Thanksgiving leftovers – I think it’s even more delicious than Thanksgiving dinner!  You simply use the leftovers you have and wrap them in an egg roll wrapper and deep fry until they are golden and crispy, serve with cranberry sauce and gravy as the dipping sauces.  Everything you love about Thanksgiving in every bite – and the crunch from the wrapper just makes it even more delicious!
