My Delicious Leftovers Recipes mean there’s no excuse not to use up your Christmas or Thanksgiving leftovers anymore! While it’s great to freeze what you can, there’s always a risk of things getting ‘lost’ in the freezer and resurfacing when it’s far too late to use them. These recipes mean that even the last little bits of your favourite Christmas or Thanksgiving turkey, ham or chicken will get used up with very little effort – and no one will complain about leftovers ever again!
It’s easy to use up the first of the Christmas leftovers. There’s the long looked forward to Christmas night turkey sandwich, the grilled ham and cheese and here in England there’s the Ploughman’s platter with slices of meat, cheese and chutney. However when the lovely thick slices of cold cuts are gone, what to do with the little bits and pieces that are left behind? My delicious Christmas Leftovers Recipes are the solution.

It’s easy to whip up my Wonderful Leftovers Casserole using a package of ready made stuffing. It’s also a great way to use up your own homemade stuffing. You can substitute turkey or ham (or both) for the chicken in this dish and use your leftover vegetables too.
You can make stir fries with leftover meat, provided you are careful to add it at the very last minute so it just heats through and doesn’t overcook. My easy recipe for Leftover Turkey and Almond Stir Fry shows you how!
