What to Do with Leftovers

By December 25, 2012

banana breadGot leftovers? Whether from Christmas dinner or any meal, here are some great ideas of what to do with leftovers. From soups and salads to tacos and pizza, there are a bevy of ways to use leftover rice, chicken, turkey, beef, potatoes, stale bread and much more.

Take those overripe bananas. Don't throw them out. There's no better starter for my banana bread with chocolate chips. The more ripe the bananas are, the sweeter the banana bread will be.

Got just a little leftover chicken? Turn it into my chicken tortilla soup. This hearty soup is just what you need when the weather is cold.

I turn leftover ground beef into meat pie. And there's no better way to make French toast than with leftover stale bread.

Try all of these recipes, and be sure to post your reviews.
