Put it in a pie
Pies are a wonderful way to use up leftovers. The great thing is that you can put pretty much anything in a pie – all you need is some filling, sauce and some flaky, buttery pastry to bring it all together.
If you’ve got leftover bolognese, meat or pasta sauce, just add whatever’s lying around to make a delicious filling – some vegas, spices, and sauce. Top it off with some pastry or mashed potato, pop it in the oven, and you’ve got a meal to savour.

Wrap it in a burrito
Another way to make the most of leftover meats and vegetables is to wrap them up in a warm tortilla into a burrito.
Make it a breakfast burrito by adding some scrambled eggs, or if wraps aren’t your thing, squish your filling between two tortillas, add some cheese and you’ve got a delicious quesadilla.

Whip it into a soup
Now that we’re getting into the colder months, it’s the perfect time to get stuck into some soup recipes.
Leftover roast vegetables or chicken on the bone are ideal for making soups. You can either whizz up your vegetables with some stock in a blender, or make a broth out of leftover chicken.

Get creative with your freezing
Freezing leftovers isn’t some clever new idea, but you might not have thought of all the ways you can freeze leftover food.
Big ice trays are super handy for freezing leftover cream, stock, or even spinach. When they’re ready to use again, you can simply pop them out and mix it into your food.
