Using up Holiday Leftovers

Using up Holiday Leftovers

The feast is over, the plates are clean, so what's left? A fridge full of leftovers, we'd bet! Big roasts and whole birds are popular over the holidays - everyone looks forward to them. But what you do with the leftovers can garner some pretty rave reviews as well.

There's no need to discard beef, chicken, cheese or vegetables. Tacos, sandwiches and protein-packed salads for lunch the next day are crowd-pleasers and a great way to transform those leftovers into a new meal your guests won't even recognize. And if you've got leftover bread or buns, even if they're stale, don't even think of tossing them out - we've got a use for those too.
