Making the Most of Your Easter Leftovers

Ham and Asparagus Skillet Meal

While a table loaded with food is wonderful during your Easter celebration, it also means you could have plenty of leftovers to use. Don’t fret! Those leftovers can be used in creative ways to help you make the most of every dish.

Swapping in pre-cooked ingredients in recipes not only saves you time, but also reduces grocery costs and food waste. Plus, you’ll also be building upon the flavor profile, making for a one-of-a-kind dish. No more boring leftovers!

Here are my suggestions for using up the last of your holiday ham, lamb, eggs, and more.

Cheddar and Ham Puff

Old-Fashioned Ham Loaf

Gyro-Style Lamb with Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce over Quinoa

Pickled Eggs

Lamb Stew with Lemons and Olives
