After the big Thanksgiving feast, it feels good to get back on track -- at least until the next holiday splurge. These waist-friendly meals are so satisfying, your family won't even blink an eye.
The Thanksgiving feast may be over, but your houseguests will still be hungry. Don't stress yourself out by being a short order cook. Most of these brunch recipes can be made in advance, and all of them have some serious "wow-factor."
