3 Leftover Recipes for Post-Holiday Cooking

Never throw away your leftovers! Here are recipes to make them flavorful than ever.

The holiday festivities are finally over, but Christmas and NY treats are still piled inside the fridge. What to do with all these? Give them delicious tweaks to enjoy new recipes this month.

Lechon Pa More with Lechon Paksiw

Lechon is always a piece of heaven for everyone. But once the skin turns sloppy, it needs a little edit, stat! Thanks to the one responsible for the recipe of Lechon Paksiw. You can do this recipe using lechon kawali, too. Just make sure you cook this with a generous amount of lechon sauce, garlic, and other spices. If you’re planning to go on a diet this new year, cooking this recipe may not be a good idea, because it is best eaten with lots of rice!

Cheesier New Year with Queso de Bola Sliders

Still expecting a few visitors at home? We know you’re already too tired with all the holiday party preps and cooking, so try this quick and easy recipe using your leftover queso de bola. Add other fillings you can find inside the fridge, like vegetables, ham, and bacon to boost the flavors. If you’re going to cook a savory dish that needs cheese (hello Kaldereta!), go ahead and use your queso de bola slices. Tip: To keep your leftover queso de bola fresh, make sure you keep it inside the ref with its red candle wax intact, because it serves as a protective coating to lengthen its shelf life.

You may use your cooked leftover ham and chicken, plus lettuce, tomato slices, a bit of egg to complete the recipe—and spend your afternoon over good TV and great snacks. Eating snacks is more fun when paired with family bonding, right?

Here’s to another year of happy cooking, Foodies!
