Don’t just plan for the big meal, plan for the days after too with these remixed recipes. In this Essence Now segment, show host, Makho Ndlovu and Chef Lexis, repurpose a popular Thanksgiving side dish. Chef Lexis turns leftover mac & cheese from Thanksgiving into two different dishes. The first dish is fried mac & cheese balls, breaded with seasoned panko bread crumbs and then deep fried.  The second dish is macaroni and cheese turned up a notch by adding sautéed spinach, andouille sausage more cheese and finished off in the oven.
