If you roast a big turkey for Easter and have a ton of leftovers, give it a Mexican-inspired makeover with this smoky chipotle turkey tortas from Hola Jalapeño.
To make this tongue-tantalizing torta, mix shredded turkey with garlic, lime juice and spicy chipotle in adobo, then pile it onto toasted bolillo rolls that are covered with refried black beans and bubbling Oaxaca cheese.
A layer of sliced radishes, baby arugula, red onions and crema Mexicana gives this Mexican-style sandwich fresh flavors and textures that balance out the other ingredients. Es delicioso!
Perfect for feeding a large crowd, this fabulous frittata is an inexpensive, quick and easy dish to put on the table the morning after Easter. Instead of whipping up individual omelettes or waiting for a casserole to bake, you simply pour beaten eggs over leftover ham, cheese, broccoli and onions, and cook the mixture in a skillet without stirring.
Frittatas are finished off in the oven, so slide your skillet under the broiler and cook until lightly browned. Cut it into wedges and serve immediately.
Your family will remember this over-the-top milkshake more than any Easter dessert you served on the holiday. The base of this sweet treat is an ice cream milkshake, but the outside is where things get freaky fun.
Start with a homemade buttercream frosting studded with bunny Peeps and pastel M&M’s, then top it off with whipped cream, chopped-up candy eggs and a chocolate bunny head.
These aren’t your ordinary Peeps dipped in chocolate. These Peeps treats are dunked in warm white chocolate and then dressed up with a colorful variety of sprinkles and candy decor.
You can gussy them up even more by turning them into chocolate-covered Peeps pops with lollipop sticks and presenting them as a Peeps bouquet. Or dip them in chocolate and melt them between graham crackers to create Peeps s’mores.
Skillet shepherd’s pie with lamb
Instead of reheating a boring plate of leftover lamb and mashed potatoes, repurpose them into this skillet shepherd’s pie courtesy of Valerie’s Kitchen!
This easy recipe calls for ground beef, but the traditional rendition of shepherd’s pie features ground lamb — which is what we recommend for this leftover Easter dish.
You prepare the sumptuous filling — a mouthwatering mixture of ground meat, onion, carrots, peas, corn and fresh herbs — and the cheesy mashed potato topping in a skillet, then finish the pie off in the oven to create a crisp, browned crust on top. Delish!
