Boxing Day Recipes

Good Morning Readers!

We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas day with your friends and loved ones, eating and drinking till you dropped and received plenty of gifts!

However I'm sure that things aren't going as well as you hoped. More often than not, it is all too easy to forget about food for Boxing Day. Your cupboards are near empty, your fridge has been raided and even your freezer is looking pretty sorry too. Aside a few raw ingredients and perhaps some ready sauces, you're left with the increasing possibility of having to eat the remains of yesterday's Christmas dinner.

No doubt, reheated roasted potatoes, vegetables and turkey carcass aren't the finest culinary prospects. Thankfully we at Overclock3D have thrown together a couple of ideas to make something a little different out of your left over Christmas dinner!

1. Pizza Féstive Al Forno

You've got to be kidding right? Christmas dinner, on a pizza? This has got to be the biggest bastardisation of recent times; perhaps with the exception of the Don't Stop Believin' cover from "Glee".

This little experiment started as a bit of a laugh, but much to our suprise the end result was actually very good! Simply throw together a dough base and layer up your christmas dinner on top. If you're feeling risky, you can do what we did and replace the tomato puree base with left over gravy. Ultimately, whatever it doesn't matter what you have left over as Bread and Cheese are very neutral additions to the mix!

This particular recipe has its gifts and curses. The good? It's christmas dinner on bread. The bad? It's christmas dinner on bread. As tastey as it was, it will inevitably taste just like yesterday's meal. Turn over for something a little more different...

Turkey Tikka Masala

We as a nation love our curry. What could go wrong when left over vegetables and turkey cuts meet a stir-in curry sauce? Simply mix, cook and simmer. Remember, if you leave the curry on low heat for a little longer, you stand a better chance of the flavour being absorbed by the vegetables and meat. So long as you have access to a bottle of stir in curry sauce (or similar) the preparation and cooking time is as low as fast food. Simply cook and serve with your choice of rice or bread; a great way to get rid of your left over vegetables!

Turkey Chow Mein

Without doubt, this recipe is the easiest of the lot. Following a similar routine to the Tikka Masala, you simply drop your leftover goods into a wok, add noodles and a stir fry sauce of choice. Stir quickly on high heat for roughly five minutes. The preparation tastes best when its sizzling hot so serve immediately and try not to burn yourself!
