A few ways to use up your christmas leftovers, all with butter for extra calories.
Christmas Bubble & Squeak
Mash together any leftover vegetables from christmas dinner with a spoonful of butter, some chunks of Christmas ham and a grating of any cheeseboard leftovers. Shape into burger sized patties, melt a little butter in a frying pan and cook on both sides until golden and heated through. Delicious with a poached egg, for brunch or supper.
Parsnip & Roasties soup
Gently cook a diced onion in a knob of butter, add your leftover roast potatoes and parsnips along with any other vegetables remaining from Christmas dinner, cover with veg stock and simmer. If you have leftover gravy you can add that too. Add in a good grind of pepper then whizz until smooth. Serve with chunks of bread and butter and if you have some Christmas cheese to use up, grate a little on top.
Panettone & Butter pudding
Spread wedges of Panettone with butter and nestle them in an oven dish. Whisk together eggs, cream, milk and sugar and pour over the Panettone. Bake in the oven until golden and crisp on top.
Melt leftover Christmas chocolate together with butter and honey and combine with unused mixed nuts, such as brazils, hazelnuts and almonds, broken up biscuits and chopped glace cherries. Press it all into a brownie tin and chill before cutting into squares.
