Helen’s Home Cooking:Christmas Leftovers

Here’s a wee cooking suggestion for using up those leftovers we always seem to have.

If you have a freezer you can package up some Turkey and gravy leftovers into wee freezer bags as individual portions and freeze.

Brussels Sprouts and Bacon.

  • 6 rashers of smoked streaky bacon

  2. Remove from the pan and put onto kitchen roll.
  3. In the same pan, melt the butter and fry the onion until soft.
