New Life for Holiday Leftovers

Suzanne Cowden

After preparing a big holiday meal, most of us feel like we need a break from the kitchen.  In the days following Thanksgiving or Christmas, dishing up “as is” leftover meat, potatoes, and vegetables provides much needed relief.  Once we’ve had a chance to unwind, though, holiday leftovers provide plenty of opportunities for easy, creative meals. To help you to get back into the kitchen post-holiday, we’ve gathered a variety of holiday leftovers recipes bound to motivate you to start cooking again.

You’ll find recipes full of traditional holiday flavors, as well as those that take your leftovers in totally new directions.  From soups to sandwiches to salads and casseroles, these recipes will enable you to dish up leftovers day after day without getting tired of them.

Get ready to prolong your holiday cheer with this tasty collection of leftover recipe ideas.
