Christmas Dinner: Leftover Recipes

Christmas Dinner

Christmas dinner is something we all look forward to, but like most, you’ll soon be facing a mountain of leftovers. Luckily The Christmas Leftovers Guide have produced a range of simple recipes for your leftovers. I have selected just a couple that I would like to try.

The great thing about this recipe is, apart from the base, you can literally add any ingredients you want! 

Ingredients (per Calzone)
140g of flour
4 eggs
200ml of milk
Dash of oil
Any leftovers you want!

Cooking Instructions (if all ingredients have been pre-cooked)
Tip the flour into a mixing bowl and add 4 eggs, beat the mixture until smooth
Add 200 ml of milk and continue to beat
Add a dash of oil into a large round baking tray and heat at 200°C until warm
Pour mixture into the warmed baking tray and cook for 20-25 minutes until the Yorkshire pudding is golden and puffy
Remove the pudding from the oven and begin filling it with your ingredients but don’t get too greedy as you’ll need to roll this up
Once rolled, place back in the oven for around 10-12 minutes (depending on what your ingredients are)

vegetables have to be the overlooked leftover at Christmas and generally, they’re thrown out, but this Veggie burger recipe can easily be created using any vegetable leftovers.

Ingredients (for 4 people)
Any leftover vegetables (quantity depends on the size of your burger)
2 cups of cheese
1 bag of salad for garnish
4 bread buns 
Cranberry/apple/mint sauce

Cooking Instructions
Cut all vegetables you intend to use into as small pieces as possible
Proceed by using a potato masher to break your ingredients into one mixture
Begin to manipulate the mix into burger patties
Add oil to a frying pan and cook the burgers for 3-4 minutes on either side
Toast or warm bread if appropriate and serve with a side salad
