If you had an Easter feast this past weekend, you likely have leftovers taking up space in your fridge. However, I’m sure we can all agree that after a day or two of tucking into the same foods repeatedly, the remaining bits of food are losing some of their leftover luster.
Here are some suggestions for repurposing the Easter dinner leftovers that are still cluttering up your fridge.
5 Ideas for Your Easter Dinner Leftovers
Classic devilled eggs are making a comeback when it comes to easy entertaining, so use your leftover hard-boiled eggs for this weekend’s dinner party. Alternatively, turn them into a quick sandwich for the school lunch box, or slice and scatter over salads for some added protein to your midday meal.
Having leftover ham in the fridge is like having money in the bank. Withdraw small amounts over the course of the week to help you get your family fed by making ham and cheese muffins for snacking, and frittatas for lunches and dinner.
Leftover leg of lamb is not something that should go to waste. Pull the meat off the bone and use it in a soup or stew, add to a vegetable curry and spoon over rice, or stick thin slices into a sandwich and top with feta cheese and mint pesto.
Repurpose any leftover asparagus and peas into a tasty spring salad and cover with generous dollops of avocado green goddess dressing. Also, this Tortellini & Spring Veggie soup is delicious.
If the Easter bunny left your household with too much chocolate this year, put away the leftovers (well wrapped in the freezer) and turn them into a decadent dessert on another day. Melt it down to make a fondue for dipping chunks of fresh fruit, chop it up and use it in your baking, or add a few pieces to a mug of hot chocolate to warm you up on these cool spring evening.
