Kitchen Tip of the Day = Great Ideas for Holiday Leftovers

Turn holiday leftovers into after-holiday delights with these simple ideas!

Cranberry Relish and Sauce

  • Blend with your favorite mustard and spread on leftover turkey sandwiches.
  • Spoon over yogurt and granola for a delicious and healthy treat.
  • Add to vinaigrette dressing and serve over peppery greens, like arugula or kale, to create a delicious winter salad.
  • Heat with a touch of Grand Marnier liqueur for an incredible ice cream or pound cake topping.
  • Heat with a cabernet wine and serve as a sauce with chicken or pork.

Canned Pumpkin Pie Filling

  • Add to oatmeal and top with a little cinnamon. Pumpkin pie oatmeal!
  • Create an out-of-this-world pumpkin smoothie. Mix with milk and vanilla yogurt, then add a little cinnamon, nutmeg, brown sugar and blend with a few ice cubes.
  • Divide into ½-cup portions and freeze. Later, you’ll have just the right amount to add to waffle or pancake batter.

More Timely Tips

  • Wine only lasts for a few days after the bottle is open. Freeze the leftovers in ice cube trays. It will be ready to add to soups or sauces. One cube equals about two tablespoons.
  • Chop stale, leftover bread into crumbs and freeze. Thaw for use as a crunchy topping for fish or pasta, and for making meatballs or meatloaf.
  • Freeze leftovers in individual portions. They make a tasty and budget-friendly alternative to store-bought frozen meals.
