15 Recipes to Use Up Your Christmas Leftovers

Christmas is a time for indulgence. As soon as Thanksgiving comes to an end, most of us will already have been stocking up on the festive drinks and planning our holiday menu. But after making sure that there’s enough food to feed all the family, many of us find ourselves picking at Christmas leftovers for weeks after the big day (turkey curry, anyone?).

Fortunately, there’s more to post-holiday delicacies than a diet of roast ham sandwiches and leftover candy. These recipes make creative and tasty use of festive ingredients, ensuring that you won’t get bored of tucking into cold stuffing (again). Instead of digging into a reheated green bean casserole, or plating up ANOTHER piece of pecan pie, try repurposing your Christmas fare and tuck into one of these instead:
