Christmas Leftovers - part 1. Soup, a Turkey & Cranberry Toast Topper, a Cheesy Tart
Something different, a savoury Christmas crumble

If you like Brussels sprouts, as I do, you may have bought too many for Christmas Day and have plenty left in the fridge. We both love sprouts just steamed, but there are plenty of other ways to enjoy them, either raw or cooked.

Sprouts that are already cooked

Cooked Brussels sprouts

Bubble and Squeak

The first and most obvious way is in bubble and squeak. Take a few cooked sprouts and chop them into quarters, add a couple of roasties, chopped small, mash in a few cooked carrots and parsnips. Squidge everything together and shape into patties. Fry gently on each side until crispy, use some turkey fat, or perhaps some goose fat, for extra flavour if you have it. Top with a dollop of cranberry sauce or chutney

I’ve been googling today for inspiration and have found some lovely sounding ideas.

A few sprouts work well in soup, but don’t do as I did one year and use loads, the after affects were dire!

This is the ultimate love it or hate it recipe, not only sprouts, but marmite as well – Charred Brussels Sprouts with Marmite Butter!

This sounds wonderful, I love this anyway, would be fab with sprouts – Pad Thai

Sprouts that are raw

Raw Brussels sprouts

Shred raw sprouts and add them to a slaw. Use mayo, or a squeeze of lime or lemon juice.

Brussels sprouts, bacon and Stilton pizzettas, ooh, yum

This Joe Wicks recipe uses chicken thighs, but of course turkey would work just as well – Tagine with spiced Brussels sprouts and feta

This simply titled dish sounds gorgeous and can be used for leftover stuffing as well as sprouts – Stuffing Sprouts

Parsnip and Sprout Colcannon uses up parsnips as well as sprouts

This gorgeous recipe can be used all year round with whatever green brassica is available – Indian Spiced Greens
