The day after the holidays: what to cook with leftovers?

Discover our ideas to throw less after the holidays and cook delicious meals with the remains of your wild evenings.

The parties are over but your guests have left behind a few leftovers that you may not know what to do with. To continue the party in the kitchen and sublimate the remains of the day before, we offer you some 100% zero waste tips.

What to do with stale bread?

On festive evenings, we tend to buy a lot (too much) of bread so as not to run out of it. The next day, the bread is hard, stale, or softened and the temptation to throw it away is great. Fortunately, a few tricks exist to avoid this mess:

To exploit the stale bread of the day before and not throw anything away, you can prepare a delicious French toast, crumble it into breadcrumbs or reduce it into small croutons for your winter soups. For a healthy meal the next day, why not prepare gourmet toasts salted in the oven or bruschetta (themselves topped with leftovers from the day before)? Here is a great idea for Christmas brunch!

How to reuse meat, poultry, fish and vegetable scraps?

These already cooked foods can be stored in an airtight box for 48 to 72 hours. To keep them consumable for as long as possible, don’t forget to quickly cool them before going to bed.

These leftovers will allow you to make very good meals such as mixed salad, Parmentier hash, or hearty pizzas, pies, and quiches garnished.

How to turn cheese into a filling or sauce?

It’s hard to imagine a festive meal without its inevitable cheese platter… that we rarely finish! The leftover cheese can then be reused to make a gourmet and tasty cheese sauce! You can also use soft cheese crusts that are quite edible and suitable for garnishing a pie, pizza, or toast.
