Holiday Heritage: How to Repurpose Holiday Leftovers

Holiday Heritage: How to Repurpose Holiday Leftovers

In my house, it’s perfectly acceptable to eat Holiday dinner for breakfast the next day (and if we’re being honest, you can have it for every meal until the week after without fear of judgment), but if you’re looking to switch things up just a little this year then might I suggest trying one of these recipe remixes below. 

Cranberry Sauce to festive Cocktail

We’re not going to get into the canned vs homemade debate here, but I will say this recipe works better if you’re using real cranberry sauce.  Simply add a spoonful to a cocktail shaker, with an ounce of your favorite spirit (I like bourbon), three oz limeade and shake it like you mean it. Serve over ice, garnish with an orange twist and sip your way through all your family’s after dinner antics.

Today’s Candied Yams, Tomorrows Sweet Potato Pancakes

Take 1 cup of leftover yams (mashed), and mix them with 2 eggs, and 2 cups buttermilk. In a separate bowl sift together 2 cups all purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, half a teaspoon baking soda, and a pinch of salt.  Combine wet and dry ingredients until smooth and ladle onto a hot griddle. Cook for a few mins on each side and enjoy those yams a second (or third) time around.

Mashed Potatoes can make a delicious Gnocchi

Now this might be a little more technical but if you’re down to flexing your culinary muscle then give this one a try. Take a cup of mashed potatoes, one egg, a pinch of salt and a cup (or more) flour. Combine into a firm dough (adding more flour if needed). Roll out strips of your dough and cut into bite sized pieces. Dust into finished gnocchi in flour to keep from sticking until you’re ready to cook them. boil in salted water for 3 minutes or until gnocchi begin to float. Strain cooked gnocchi and finish with your favorite pasta sauce or sauté in a little butter and sage.

These are just a few fun ways to rework some of those delicious leftovers into new dishes that your family will enjoy. Feel free to use your imagination, and get creative but if all else fails, no one will judge you have turkey sandwiches for the rest of the month.
