Love the Leftovers

Dec 10, 2014

Help your patrons change their points of view on leftovers!

Ever-present during the holiday season, leftovers have a classic comforting quality. Share these ideas with patrons to inspire them at home, or use them in your own kitchen to create exciting “leftover” dishes for your family and friends.

  • Change the flavor profile. Use turkey meat from a roast in spicy soups, stews or sandwiches to put a twist on the original flavor. Inspiration: Easy White Chili
  • Remember—turkey is a better-for-you breakfast protein, too. Don’t limit yourself to lunch and dinner. Try breakfast sandwiches, tacos, hash, breakfast pot roast and more. Inspiration: Creamed Turkey Medallion-Stuffed Crepes
  • Don’t forget about appetizers! Use turkey in starters and hors d’oeuvres for holiday gatherings or parties. Inspiration: Turkey Spinach Artichoke Dip
  • Add creative sauces. From spicy and smoky to sweet, citrus flavors, sauces can make leftover roasted turkey taste like a different meal every day of the week. Inspiration: Bacon and Red Onion Jam
