Sweet Potato Muffins – Great Made Gluten Free Too

Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins

The lovely sweet potato. So pretty, so yummy, and so good for you. Every year for Thanksgiving, I make a large casserole dish of these potatoes, only whipped with some milk. They’re so naturally sweet that they don’t need much else.

But, alas, I’m the only lover of these potatoes in my family, so I always have lots and lots of leftovers. (And, no, I never learn to make less). Here is an easy, and tasty way to use up some of those leftovers. And these muffins, my family will eat.

I’m Gluten Free, so I make a batch using my gluten free flour blend. After I have my fill of the warm muffins fresh out of the oven, I freeze the rest so I can enjoy them for weeks to come.

Easy Leftover Ideas for Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

Here are several quick and handy ideas for leftovers when you just don’t have time to fuss …

• Mix cooled leftover potatoes and buttery sweet corn with about ½ cup or so of your favorite cheese, form into 3-inch diameter pancakes. Heat up 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a frying pan and fry your potato pancakes. (Turn them gently; they may split or fall apart.) Dab pancakes on paper towel to take off the grease, then place on dish. Dollop with sour cream.

• Shred leftover turkey, toss with your favorite bottled barbecue sauce, gently heat and serve.

• Make your favorite chicken salad recipe, substituting cubed turkey. Serve on toasted bun or over leftover mixed salad greens.

Take Home All Leftovers – Don’t Waste Food

Take Those Leftovers

Take Those Leftovers

When I eat out, I take home all the leftovers, no matter how small. You see, I’ve always been one for not wasting food. And that’s what happens to any food that leaves the restaurant kitchen. By law, they must throw it in the trash, even if you never touched it. What a wasteful society we’ve become.

Don’t be ashamed either. You are helping your budget, the landfills, the economy, and the environment. And you’ve paid for it! Are you taking that half of a hamburger home? Then also take home the uneaten slice of onion, lettuce, and tomato from a hamburger plate. Take the lime slice home from your Mexican meal.
