Ellio’s Turkey Day Leftovers Melt!

We know you’ve got plenty of good food wrapped up in the fridge, and you probably don’t feel like cooking a big meal for a while. Well, you’re in luck, because this melt couldn’t be any easier to put together. To get started, all you’ll need is a few of those delicious leftovers.

In this edition of Ellio’s Pizza Hacks, we’re getting creative with those leftover Turkey Day favorites. We’ve pulled out our turkey scraps, a little bit of stuffing and, of course, some sweet jelly cranberry sauce. Those are the necessities, but feel free to break out the yams and collards, too!

Our goal is to keep the recipe simple, but you can add as many ingredients as you dare. We also mostly use store-brand ingredients, and the results are always tasty. You can make these with any of our pizzas, but this video features our Extra Cheese Pizza, which comes in a 6-slice serving. Now, let’s make something tasty with that leftover turkey!

What You’ll Need and Suggested Portions:
1 box of Ellio’s Pizza
Chopped leftover turkey
Sliced jelly cranberry sauce
2 piles of turkey stuffing
1 slice of your favorite cheese
1-2 dollops of mayonnaise
1 tablespoon of butter

How the Magic Happens:
1. Gather up your favorite Turkey Day leftover staples.
2. Slice up a new can of jelly cranberry sauce, because you probably have a few in the pantry.
3. Toast your Ellio’s Pizza slice for about 10 minutes in the toaster oven and cut in half.
4. Spread a little bit of mayonnaise on each side of your pizza (this is optional, of course).
5. Pile the stuffing onto each side.
6. Place your turkey scraps on top of the stuffing.
7. Top the turkey with desired amount of cranberry slices.
8. Toss your favorite slice of cheese on top of the cranberry.
9. Melt a little bit of butter in a skillet on medium heat.
10. Finally, place both sides of your soon-to-be pizza melts in the skillet, and allow cheese to melt.
11. Scarf ‘em down!

Time Travel with a Rad 80's Pizza Party

Some kids visualize hitting a 9th inning home run with the count full to win the World Series in walk off fashion. I longed to tend lovingly to the needs of my guests during a busy fall foliage season. That’s right, as a young boy growing up in the 80s, my life’s dream was to run a charming B&B.

I Wanna Rock and Roll All Night, and Eat Pizza Everyday - #80sPizzaParty

I love sharing all the cool aspects of my childhood with my son. The movies and music I watched/listened to are at the core of who I am, so it really makes me smile to see my son enjoy the same things I did as a little kid. That goes for Ellio’s too, because there is no better way to bond, or party, with someone than over some good food.

A Night At The Movies

Up until a few weeks ago, I had been making two dinners a night. I’d make one for the kids and simultaneously, one for my wife and me. We’d give the kids a bath, read stories and get them in bed. After they were zonked, she and I would sit down and revel in the opportunity to actually taste our food and carry on a conversation without the wildlings heaving food at us or instigating contests to see who could scream the loudest and longest.
