Do you end up with lots of leftovers after holidays meals? We always seem to have lots of turkey and ham after Thanksgiving, Christmas and even Easter! I hate seeing food go to waste, but I can only eat so many sandwiches. So, I’ve found other ways to use our leftovers. One of my favorite recipes for using leftover ham is ham and swiss lasagna rolls.
These lasagna rolls are so cheesy and delicious. Plus, they are much quicker to make than traditional lasagna, and the Swiss cheese goes great with the ham. I add in chopped broccoli usually, but if you have leftover green beans, you could chop those up and substitute that for the broccoli.
What are some of your favorite ways to use leftovers? I’m also a big fan of turkey and spinach lasagna rolls, turkey tacos with cranberry salsa or turkey picante pie when I need to use up my leftover turkey.
