Christmas Leftovers Sat, 12/26/09 3:30 AM (permalink)
 Well, here it is at 11:30 pm Christmas night.....  Found some leftover prime rib and a few roasted potatoes. Chopped it up a bit added some onion and pepper and made a good hash and a few eggs.



  What are some of your best ways to use up leftovers?

    I've got no savory leftovers, but I do have a few of Ruth's drop-dead delicious Swiss cookies remaining -- Mailanderli (eggyolk-enriched butter-sugar discs), lekerli (frosted squares of candied fruit and ground almond) and zimtsterne (cinnamon-almond stars). It's not yet 6am on the 26th, and I plan for them to be gone by dawn.

      Looks like a tasy breakfast Michael! I'm off to the store to buy some good rye bread for our leftover ham. I will slice off the remaining lamb to make BBQ lamb to serve over rice. As far as the duck from Christmas Eve, none left!

        We have leftover Cuban roast pork from Christmas Eve and roasted, smoked ham from Christmas day.  Both are the proper ingredients for an authentic Cuban sandwich the way they should be made. Sliced pork,ham,mustard, lengthwise, thinly sliced dill pickles,and Swiss cheese complete the sandwich on Cuban bread. In this case, I'm using 8" Cuban rolls, but it's the very same bread that you get in the long loaves, just easier to work with. Top and bottom of the sandwich is brushed with whipped butter and pressed in a flat sandwich press. The result: 
         
         
        Perfection.

          These delicious looking sweet treats are not leftovers in my book. They're first class good eats. I'm surprised they weren't finished the first time around.

            For those of you still with any leftover holiday ham, I made this Food Network

            recipe last night and which turned out both fantastic and delicious.

             

             

            http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/croque-monsieur-mac-and-cheese-recipe/index.html

             

            (Croque Monsieur Macaroni and Cheese)

             

            Think equal parts mac & cheese, koogle and Croque Monsieur (the latter as recently prominently

            featured in the new movie "It's Complicated"). I couldn't recommend more.

              i95 that looks delicious and will have to try it with the leftover ham I have - so far it's been sandwiches, a good sized chunk heated to eat with waffles, and I'm making split pea soup that I'm going to put some pieces in.  

              That Dorothy Parker quote about ham -  "Eternity is a ham and two people" is so true.
