What to Do with Christmas Leftovers

Even though Christmas is behind us, we will more than likely be chowing down on Christmas leftovers for a few more days yet. So, if you’re not one to freeze leftover food and would prefer to reinvent it, this blog is for you!!!! I’ve done a little research to see what sort of recipes were out there to revamp our favourite holiday fixins and I’ve included them for you below!!! I’ve made sure to share some vegan/vegetarian ideas as well as non-vegan/non-vegetarian ideas so there’s inspiration for everyone!!!

For those of you who like to eat your greens during the holidays and who just might have some leftover Brussels Sprouts and cabbage, I came across this recipe for Greens and Brussels Sprout Caesar Slaw salad that sounds pretty darn tasty!! Check it out, here!!!!

Lots of leftover root veg?? No problem!! As good as these are on their own, this Moroccan Roasted Vegetable soup sounds irresistible!! What’s better than a hot bowl of soup on a snowy day??? Especially when it’s chalked full of nutrients!!!

For the potato lovers out there … I started DROOLING when I came across this recipe for Smashed Potatoes with Roasted Garlic Cashew Butter … not only does this make for great use of all of those leftover spuds, it’s also VEGAN!!! Woohoo!!!

For the easiest and most delicious breakfast, you can take your leftover stuffing, scoop it into pre-oiled muffin tins (spray oil works best), crack an egg on top, then bake it at 375 for about 12 minutes or until the egg is medium/ soft poached to the touch. Easy peasy and oh so flavorful!!!!

If you’re in search of a delish gourmet sandwich recipe, try this Reuben with Cranberry Aioli!! It’s extremely simple to make. All you have to do is build it and grill it in a pan like you would a grilled cheese sandwich!!

What you will need:
Multi Grain Artesian Bread (buttered)
Leftover turkey
2 tablespoons Cranberry Aioli (Mix a tablespoon of leftover cranberry sauce with 1/4 cup mayo)
Sauerkraut
White cheese (Swiss, mozzarella, white cheddar, etc.)

That’s it, that’s all!!! Pretty simple, right?!?!

One of the most common things to do with leftover turkey dinner is to make a hearty soup!!! A couple of years back I shared with you, my recipe for Cream of Turkey Soup. I love making soups from leftovers because you can really make it your own and unique to your taste and cravings that day. For this soup you would typically add carrots, celery, and onions for the veg but feel free to spice it up by adding corn, red peppers, peas, … anything you want!!! For the FULL recipe, click here!!
