How to cure a hangover with leftover Christmas food

There are two things you can be sure of this Christmas. One, there will be leftovers, and two - there will be hangovers.

To kill two birds with one stone, food specialists Devilled Egg have come up with some delicious recipes to minimise food waste this Christmas and cure those sore heads.

What to make with leftover Turkey?

Spicy Turkey Samosa , of course.

This recipe is easy-peasy, and uses all your leftover ingredients. Don’t be precious with the ingredients – use whatever you’ve got.

Combine your leftover roasties, sprouts, carrots and mashed together turkey meat, with fresh herbs, harissa spice mix, raisins, cranberry and seasoning.

Wrap all the mashed ingredients in filo pastry. Use two layers of pastry, brushed with butter and repeatedly into a triangle shape.

Brush with a beaten egg and bake for 200x for 15 minutes until golden. Eat with natural yoghurt with lime zest.

Miso and Turkey Broth

This is a really warming, hearty dish that will restore you to your old self.

You’ll need miso soup, creamed coconut or coconut milk and some cooked noodles.

Heat the miso soup with the coconut and add noodles.

Top with all your leftovers – carrots, fennel leaves, sprouts, turkey and sprinkle with coriander, spring onion and sesame seeds, then pour over the hot broth

BBQ Pulled Turkey Buns

Perfect for all the family.

You just need some burger buns, leftover turket (or other meat) and some barbecue spicy sauce.

Warm the turkey up in the barbecue sauce and fill the buns generously. Enjoy with chips or salad.

The Devilled Egg say “If all else fails, an incredibly simple, yet effective snack after an evening of celebrations or a long night of recipe testing, is a taco stuffed with cold turkey meat doused in mango chutney and hoisin sauce.”
