The Leftover Dilemma

Leftovers from the holidays can be great for so many things. I love to make leftover casserole after the holidays. There are also tons of ways to morph your leftovers into completely new things.

Ham/Chicken/Turkey
Mini Omelets are an easy way to use up some of that leftover meat!

• Chunking or shredding the leftover chicken or turkey makes it ideal for almost any recipe. It can easily be frozen to be used in later weeks too. Here are a few of my favorite recipes using shredded/cubed chicken or turkey.

Sweet Potatoes/Mashed Potatoes
• These Muffin Tin Potatoes are a great way to use up sweet and mashed potatoes! Simply mix in your favorite mixings into your potatoes (brown sugar, butter, marshmallows in sweet potatoes; bacon, green onions, sour cream, shredded cheese in mashed potatoes). Smash your potatoes into a muffin tin and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Yummy!!
