Mac and Cheese is one of my go-to dishes. It’s super simple, so even when you’ve had a long, hard day in the office, you should still have enough patience and energy to whip a huge dish up. It’s also perfect for batch-cooking and can last a good few days for lunches or dinners.
It’s great for using up leftovers too, so we can avoid all that food waste. I love throwing in whatever I have leftover from a roast, or any veggies I have lying around. This makes it perfect for this time of year – all that leftover turkey, sausage meat stuffing (great for topping it!), cranberry sauce, sprouts (just shred them), and more.
I teamed up with Voucher Codes to create a video of my Leftover Roast Mac and Cheese. It’s my first proper recipe video, so it seems fitting that it’s one of my fave recipes…
I had so much fun creating this with the Voucher Codes team! One of the girls said I should start my own cookery channel – if only! It’s now my dream – I just need someone to do the video element hahaha.
My recipe is super versatile, allowing you to throw in whatever you have, and always goes down well. I took a huge dish to a dinner party recently, and one of the girls had my slow cooked lamb version and said it tops many she’s tried. I’m obviously not feeling smug at all.
It’s also pretty cheap to make. We worked it out at bout £1.30 per portion! Making it even more perfect for December when everyone is low on money after all the celebrations 😉
What’s your go-to recipe for using up leftovers this Christmas?
