Seven Recipes for Your Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Dinner Feast Leftovers

02 December 2021 SUPER LOCO CUSTOMS HOUSE

One of the best things about December is that it’s called the festive season for good reason: with so much feasting and drinking to be done, those festive roast banquets and trimmings aren’t just for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day (though not for a lack of trying). Take the feasting beyond your holiday dinner parties with this list of delicious recipes that elevate those glorious leftovers into decadent meals over the next couple of days.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

Ross Geller explains the Moist Maker.

We would be remiss if we didn’t include one of pop culture’s most memorable Thanksgiving creations from Friends: Ross Geller’s Thanksgiving leftover sandwich, the iconic Moist Maker using leftover turkey. Wait for it: Monica’s secret behind this little number is putting an extra slice of gravy-soaked bread in the middle. Take it from Ross: that sandwich was “the only good thing going in his life”.

Recreate the Moist Maker with your turkey roast leftovers from Chico Loco (if you haven’t gobbled them all up already) using the show’s official recipe here.

 

Roast Vegetables Frittata

This one-pan Roast Vegetables Frittata recipe is ridiculously easy to make, and equally delicious. Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes, pumpkin — experiment with different leftover roast vegetables that you have on hand, throw in some beaten eggs and you’re all set.

Thanksgiving Leftovers Breakfast Burrito

In Chrissy Teigen we trust. This Leftovers Breakfast Burrito has all the works: stuffing, roast chicken (or your favourite roast of choice), roast vegetables and even cranberry sauce, cosily tucked into a tortilla and toasted for a hearty start to the day. Make it Mexican and enjoy alongside one of our Loco Hot Sauces for a delicious twist on a brunch must-have.

If you love a good crispy waffle, you’re going to love Smitten Kitchen’s one-step recipe behind these savoury Thanksgiving Stuffing Waffles, the perfect day-after Thanksgiving (or every other day, for that matter) breakfast. Simply press your leftover stuffing into a hot waffle iron, and let it do the rest. Top with a crispy fried egg, if that’s your kind of vibe. 

Listen to this podcast on NPR to hear how Smitten Kitchen recreated it. If you’ve got some mashed potatoes on hand too, try your hand at these Crispy Mashed Potatoes and Stuffing Fritters.

 

Christmas Roast Pot Pie

Not only a winter favourite, this Christmas Roast Pot Pie offers classic dinner comfort all year around, especially on those stormy nights. Looking for an even more fuss-free quick dinner? Skip the handmade pastry for a frozen puff pastry sheet from the store: just remember to cut a cross in the middle of the pastry so that it crisps up wonderfully in the oven.
