Make the Most of Holiday Leftovers
Whether you hosted a cocktail party or formal holiday dinner, there are no doubt leftovers. But fear not, our talented, chef, Josh Nylin, has come to the rescue. Below, Chef Josh shares a couple of recipes to give leftovers a lift.
Everyone puts out a vegetable tray … it’s the right thing to do. But it seems there are always leftovers as people treat themselves to more decadent holiday offerings. Give those veggies a tasty boost with this fritter recipe – and don’t forget the sauce.
- 3 cups Frying Oil
- 1 cup All Purpose Flour
- 1 tsp Baking Powder
- ½ tsp Salt
- ¼ tsp White Sugar
- 1 Egg (lightly beaten)
- ½ cup Milk
- 1 tbsp Softened Butter
- 12 oz Diced Roasted Vegetables
Heat oil in large pot to 365 degrees.
While oil is heating, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, beat the egg, milk, and butter and then stir into the flour mixture.
Gently fold in the roasted vegetables.
Carefully drop batter into the hot oil, one spoonful at a time, and fry until golden brown.
Be sure to drain on a paper towel to catch the excess oil.
Whisk together 1 cup mayo, 1 cup Siracha and 1 cup maple syrup and enjoy.
Not just for Thanksgiving, Turkey has a starring role all season. A twofer, this yummy hash utilizes leftover mashed potatoes and the turkey. We think it sounds perfect for New Year’s brunch.
- 1 Red Onion (diced)
- 1 Poblano Chile (diced)
- 1 Red Bell Pepper (diced)

- 2 cups Left Over Mashed Potatoes
- 1lbs Turkey (diced)
- 2 tbsp Onion Powder
- 2 tbsp Garlic Powder
- 2 tbsp Smoked Paprika

Sweat the diced onions, chile and peppers together until soft. Set aside to cool.
Fold diced turkey and spices into the potatoes, then add the cooled vegetable mixture.
Toss all the ingredients into a cast iron skillet to fry. Once nice and crisp, top with two eggs cooked to your preference.
