Christmas leftover recipes
If you’ve made a huge turkey and haven’t quite got through it yet then you’ll be pleased to know there are plenty ways to use up the delicious meat without a sandwich in sight! If you like a bit of spice then you’ll love our turkey curry – packed with aromatic flavours, not too hot and topped with fragrant coriander and crunchy almonds it makes a really family friendly Boxing Day treat.
For when the relatives decide to pop in unannounced make sure you have Christmas leftover recipes to pull out of the fridge in no time at all. In moments like these our pea and ham soup will put that gammon and leftover veg to good use and our cranberry and turkey pie makes an impressive table centerpiece.
And it’s not just main meals that Christmas leftovers are good for, either. One of our favourite things to make during the holidays is a good old pan full of bubble and squeak. This classic British dish transforms leftover potatoes and veggies into a beautiful breakfast and the beauty is, you can use absolutely anything at all depending on what you have. Cold cuts are delicious shredded and stirred through the mixture, and we never said no to a little leftover gravy poured on top either!
Whatever you decide to make with your Christmas leftovers one thing’s for sure, they’re going to be a tasty treat. How could they not be? It’s the one time of the year when it’s completely acceptable to eat multiple carbs, meats and sauces on one plate, all at once!
