Blue cheese adds the perfect punch to au gratin recipes

No matter how many mouths you're feeding at the Thanksgiving table, chances are you've got plenty of leftover turkey. After you've made turkey sandwiches, turkey salad and turkey soup, what else can you do with the leftovers?

Incorporate turkey in side dishes, and you've got an instant one-dish meal. Here's a recipe for au gratin potatoes that will work well with the addition of turkey. You can even include leftover veggies for a well-rounded one-dish entree. A gratin is a dish topped with breadcrumbs, grated cheese or other toppings and then baked.

Au gratin potatoes may be a comfort food, but the addition of blue cheese gives them an undeniable "zing." This recipe, Potato Gratin with Roquefort, is definitely rich. To add the turkey, simply work in a layer of meat when layering the ingredients and repeat as desired.

If you can't wait until after Thanksgiving to try this tasty recipe, no problem! It will make an impressive side dish (sans leftover turkey) for your Thanksgiving meal — or any dinner.
