Everyone who went a little overboard with the holiday table cooking was wondering how to save the leftovers from their Christmas meal.
Studies show that after Christmas, an average of 4.2 million meals are eaten each year. To avoid this, we present how to use the leftover food for new and innovative dishes.
How to save Christmas leftovers
Meat like chicken, pork or turkey can be the basis of a sandwich, both for the children and for you and your partner. Make sandwiches to eat the next day or take to work.
Use leftover ham and spread it like a Russian salad to prepare breakfast for you and your friends the next morning. Place the meat on a tray and place a bowl of salad spread in the middle. Serve with arugula or beets.
If you buy too much bread, make bruschettas for dinner. Cut the bread and place on a baking sheet. Mix the olive oil with the chopped garlic (the amount of coating depends on the amount of bread). Spread the bread and place in the oven.

You can use leftover salads to make hot sandwiches. Cover a piece of bread with salad and place in the oven. You’ll get a creamy, crunchy dinner.
The rest of the wine
If you run out of wine in the bottle, you can prepare and have a romantic dinner with your partner. Or you can use it to prepare goulash-shaped dishes.
Use the remaining chicken or turkey to make a salad. Cut the meat and pour into a bowl. Add sweet corn, sour cream, mayonnaise and season with pepper, salt and oregano. (The amount of cream and mayonnaise, as well as corn, depends on how much meat you have left). You can also use this salad spread as a base for tortillas.
You can also make it with pate meat. Put the minced meat in the blender, add two cloves of garlic, salt, pepper, olive oil and a teaspoon of mustard. Mix everything well.
If you have leftover mashed potatoes, pour them into the chimera. Add half a cup of flour and an egg and knead the dough. Then make the balls. Fry in olive oil and you will get a delicious snack.
