Quick and Easy Meals to Make with Leftovers

If you have leftover bread, try...
Morning-after French toast: Use leftover cranberry, pumpkin or nut bread to make warm and wonderful French toast the next morning. Top it with a spoonful or more of canned berries, peaches or crushed pineapple.

If you have leftover punch, try...
Brunch or snack-time smoothies: Turn leftover party punch into refreshing smoothies. Just mix punch with canned fruit in a blender. Add yogurt or ice cream for variety.

If you have leftover turkey or meat, try...
Turkey-mushroom casserole: Combine leftover chopped turkey with condensed cream of mushroom soup, chopped onion, canned or leftover veggies, one small package of fast-cooking rice and 2-1/2 cups of liquid (water, milk and/or broth). Bake at 350 degrees in a casserole dish until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.


Delicious Hummus Dip

For an easy, elegant, low-fat dip, make your own hummus. Drain, rinse and purée a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) in a food processor with three tablespoons each of olive oil and fresh lemon juice. Add crushed garlic to taste. Serve with fresh vegetables or bite-sized slices of pita bread.
