One of the things that so many of us have in common during the holidays is having leftover cranberry sauce. Rather than throwing out your leftover cranberry sauce, I went on a hunt to see all the different ideas that are available for using leftover cranberry sauce.
At first, the ideas that I thought I would find would be for baking ideas only, but I was amazed, everything from muffins to glazes, sauces to smoothies, the range of recipe ideas for cranberry sauce was pretty incredible!
Before we share leftover cranberry sauce recipe ideas, we want to share some really quick ideas to use up leftover cranberry sauce. Try some of our favorites below:
I toyed with the idea of giving you a couple of great recipes, but then I thought with how many incredible cooks we have that shop at Tastealotta, let’s just give them ideas and they can decide on the best recipe.
So let’s get your imagination working and have some fun with leftover cranberry sauce ideas:
When we were looking up ideas for using leftover cranberry sauce we never figured how many delectable recipes we would find for using up cranberry sauce from holiday cooking. Truly, your imagination is your only barrier to coming up with your next favorite recipe.
One of my family’s all-time favorites is Orange Chicken. Below I share a recipe I came up with to use our leftover cranberry sauce and make Orange Cranberry Chicken. You may use chicken thighs or chicken breasts. This recipe can also be baked or put together and cooked in a slow cooker if you want to come home to dinner or have dinner ready after a day of remote working.
I usually am liberal with all my ingredients because we like saucy chicken. Your eyes and spoon are your best measure for consistency and quantity. When mixing up the sauce, if it doesn’t seem like a liberal enough amount add-in more ingredient amounts based on the proportions above.
Have fun, use your imagination, and make good use of your leftover cranberry sauce this holiday season. Be sure to share with us what wonderful recipes you have created using cranberry sauce, we would love to hear from you! Be sure to come to Tastealotta this holiday season to find a special gift for the foodie in your life.
