What to do with holiday leftovers....

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

Food is a precious commodity and one we should not waste. Often we are tired of looking at the left over turkey, ham and so much more!

  • Freeze baked goods and bring them back out on a day when you need a snack!

  • Egg bakes! We love to take the left over veggie tray, proteins and other goodies and put them together to make egg muffins that are great grab and go options or for when you need the proteins pick me up.

  • Make a casserole and freeze it. Pull it out for a quick dinner or to give to someone in need. We all know someone that could use a meal throughout the year and this makes giving easy!

Here are some great recipes that are fun, creative and can liven up any holiday left over mish mash.

  • Thanksgiving Pizza:

    • Use leftover turkey as a topping along with cranberry sauce, stuffing, and a sprinkle of shredded cheese on a pizza crust.

  • Christmas Quesadillas:

    • Combine diced ham, leftover veggies, and cheese between tortillas. Serve with cranberry salsa for a festive twist.
