6 Ways to Repurpose Your 4th of July Leftovers

6 ways to repurpose your 4th of July leftovers

Are you still drowning in leftovers from your 4th of July celebrations? While we all love to host, the week after is always challenging on your fridge and your taste buds as it can often feel like you are eating the same thing for every meal for days just trying to make a dent in your leftovers. If you’re anything like us, you never want to waste food. That’s why we’ve put together a few ideas on how to reuse your leftovers in easy, but delicious ways. Check out these 6 ways to avoid sending your leftovers to the garbage. Be sure to add any missing ingredients to your next order.

1. Chicken Salad

Shred the meat from leftover grilled chicken breasts or thighs and toss them together with Sir Kensington’s Organic Mayonnaise for a refreshing chicken salad. If you are short on almonds, celery or grapes, we’ve got you covered too. 

2. Sauce

Do you have an excess of varying condiments lying around from the weekend festivities? Try this sorghum-mustard beer sauce recipe. Your leftover Pig Rock sausages are the perfect compliment. 

3. Beer-Flavored Proteins

Similar to the sauce recipe above, if you’ve found yourself with a mountain of leftover beer you have no plans to drink, give beer-can chicken a try. Add Maine Family Farms Whole Chicken to your next order and put those beer cans to work.

4. Pasta Salad

Maybe leftover meat isn’t your issue but rather lots of leftover veggies and condiments? Add some of our fresh pasta options to your next order and combine your leftover veggies and condiments into the perfect summer pasta salad. We’ve got a great selection of Curio Spices for some added flavor too!

5. Nachos

Who doesn’t love a good plate of nachos? While an opened bag of chips may last a big longer, it is still a great way to use your leftover meat, produce, cheese and sauces. Throw them all together and clear out your leftover supply all at once. There are very few things that don’t fit the bill for a nacho topping. Out of gauc? Add our guacamole box to your next order to complete your nacho night meal.

6. Stir Fry

Looking for something quick and easy that gets rid of leftovers of all kinds quickly? Try this 10-minute chicken stir-fry recipe. Throw in your remaining meat, veggies and add some sauce of your choosing for a tasty alternative meal that will please everyone at your table. We recommend serving it over rice.
