What To Do With Christmas Dinner Leftovers

christmas dinner leftovers

Lets face it, you’ve been opening the fridge looking for something and you’re staring your Christmas dinner leftovers. Everyone enjoyed the meals (if you were the cook, then well done!) and it’s probably no surprise that you’ve put a little bit of weight on. However, each time you open the fridge door, those plates of leftovers are staring back at you. Beckoning you to use them up, ‘don’t waste me’ they cry!

Christmas dinner leftovers are all part of the festive season, it’s natural and always seems to happen. Plates of meat, bowls of various vegetables, and no doubt a jug of gravy! If you’re wondering what to do with it all, then wonder no more! I found some marvellous ways of using them up!
