One of the best things about this time of year is the amount of leftovers we compile over the weekend. Although it’s great to tuck into leftovers such as meats, potatoes and veg on their own, there are plenty of inventive ways you can use them together to birth another delicious dish. Here are some mouth-watering examples below.

Leftover Potato Hash

As usual our eyes get bigger than our bellies and we have a tonne of leftovers to use up when it comes to Easter Monday. Make the most of your leftover spuds, meats and seasoning to create this beautiful breakfast dish. Our method guides you through how to create a patty from the mix of potatoes, veg and meats.

Leftover Lamb & Potato Hotpot

Easter Monday is all about relaxing! After a weekend of eating chocolate and slaving at the stove you deserve a bit of a cool-down. Thankfully this leftover lamb hotpot allows you to do just that. Using the leftovers from Sunday lunch, you can cook up this delicious dish bursting with bright flavours and tantalising textures in a slow-cooker or in any way you choose. If you follow our method, the lamb at the centre of this dish will be deliciously tender after absorbing beef stock and flavouring the spuds and veg which surrounds it. The go-to dish for Easter Monday!
