It's the holiday season
With the whoop-de-do and hickory dock
And don't forget to hang up your sock
"Cause just exactly at 12 o'clock
He'll be coming down the chimney
Coming down the chimney
Coming down the chimney, down!
What an exciting time of the year; parties, family dinners, romantic evenings, special lunches with old friends and cooking up goodies in the kitchen with kids. And we all know that the one thing that seems to be at every holiday event is yummy, comforting, warming food.
But what happens the day after, when you have a refrigerator full of leftover turkey, ham and other delectable mains? Do you eat the same boring leftovers day after day? Well, there's no need. Get creative! Turn your turkey into a pot pie, your ham into a beautiful pineapple and rice salad or your chicken into a lovely chicken grilled cheese sandwich.
Green Giant has been kind enough to go into their test kitchens to create some wonderful recipes using leftover turkey, as well as delicious sides you can serve up for your holiday dinners with the easy peasy magic of Green Giant frozen veggies. No worry, it's still considered homemade when you take advantage of Green Giant doing the veggie prep for you.
For example, just last night, I took a pack of Green Giant's Broccoli, Carrot, Cauliflower and Cheese Sauce Valley Fresh Steamers, microwaved it right in the bag, added it to a prepared box of garlic flavored Cous Cous and fresh steamed snow peas. I topped it with some boiled shrimp and had a fantastic dinner, homemade and all done in 10 minutes; you can't get pizza delivered near that quickly or healthfully.

Turkey and Veggie Alfredo Pot Pie is a new take on turkey leftovers and is delicious and easy to make. Other Green Giant simple and delicious holiday recipes include the following:
