Holiday Leftover Ideas for Bachelors

Holidays always has a lot of leftovers. Sure, one could simply just reheat most of it, in a microwave, to have on a later occasion. Or, you can be inventive with the use of leftovers. Take me for instance. As some of you may know, I'm a bachelor who often finds himself contemplating what to eat sometimes. Plus, there are so many ideas on what to do with those holiday goodies, that's it's not even funny. Take ham and turkey for instance. This is by far the easiest recipe to make, and it's fairly self explanatory, as it involves making delicious sandwiches with your leftovers.

In the case of turkey leftovers, you can take the slices of turkey breasts and lay them out on a piece of bread. Put your favorite slice of cheese on it, along with whatever other fixings you love on a sandwich like tomatoes, lettuce and etc. Then bon appetite. Oh, you can also use some of the turkey gravy for the sandwich, and rub it onto a second piece bread, with a butter knife. Just simply apply the gravy like you would any other dressing like mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise or whatever. Then, once your done, you just put the loaves together as you would a sandwich, with the gravy covered part of the bread facing inward toward the turkey meat, and viola. An instant sandwich that you can enjoy.

The same rules basically apply if your having use slices of ham leftovers to make sandwiches, as you can pretty much follow the same previous steps mentioned earlier. Although if you want my advice, honey mustard works best with slices of ham as a dressing. Now, we get to smores. Believe it or not, there's more than one way to make them. Sure, there's the traditional way where you roast a marshmallow over a fireplace, then take the melted marshmallow and stick it between two graham crackers and a piece of chocolate. However, what if you don't have a fireplace? Well, not to worry. You can still enjoy them without the luxury of having one. Just be sure to follow my step by step instructions, as there's various ways to make them.

One way you can do it is that you can simply roast the marshmallows over the stove, as you would a fireplace. Once you heat up the marshmallow to the desired temperature (either gooey or burnt), then just simply follow the same steps you would as if you were making a traditional smore. Another method you can try is using your microwave. Yes, I did say a microwave. Just simply get a microwavable safe bowl and put some marshmallows in it. Then place the bowl inside the microwave for about thirty to twenty seconds. You don't want to leave it in there too much, as the marshmallows will expand quickly inside the microwave, and cause a huge mess if it's left in there too long. And who needs that mess? Once the bowl is ready, you take it out and spread it, using a butter knife, onto a piece of graham cracker like you would a dressing for a sandwich. Then place a small piece of chocolate bar on top along with another graham cracker, and presto. You have yourself a microwaved smore.

Of course, you can also apply some of the melted marshmallow on both graham crackers if you prefer. You can even place the piece of chocolate onto a graham cracker on a plate, and put it inside the microwave for ten seconds. This will give the smore more of a richer taste once you apply the melted marshmallows and other graham cracker.

Granted, most stores sell melted marshmallow toppings these days, for those who like to use them for other goodies like cakes and such. However, you can use those melted marshmallow toppings and apply it to your smore. Just piece it together like you would a normal smore when you get home. Then place the smore inside your microwave for about twenty seconds, then your done.

As I said before, there's more than one way to make a smore. Anyways, I hope many of you enjoyed reading this hub, and happy holidays!
