Boxing Day recipes

Cooking a big, beautiful festive bird means that you are left over with lots of delicious meat to enjoy the days after Christmas, more likely than not you will also have an array of vegetables, potatoes, cranberry sauce and gravy left over too. We have put together a selection of recipes that make the best use of your leftovers and will help you enjoy them all over again….

Butter Turkey Curry


This is a delicious, warming, hearty curry that is made with cooked turkey, chicken, goose or duck meat. Fry garlic and onions, mix with spices and then add the meat, tomato puree and stock. Finish with yoghurt and garnish with flaked almonds. For the full Butter Turkey Curry click here.




Leftover Pie
