6 Polish Dishes Made with Leftover Holiday Food

Leftovers… what to do with all that meat that’s just not going to taste the same reheated. I’m offering 6 Polish dishes that you can make using your leftover meat or potatoes. 

  1. Potato Dumplings {Kopytka} – served along with turkey or ham + gravy and some vegetables (whatever you have in the fridge: carrots, broccoli, peas, bell peppers, etc.).

 

2. Chicken Pate {Pasztet} – any type of cooked meat or mixture of different types of meat will do. Feel free to omit the liver, it will also taste delicious and cook just as well.

 

3. For adventurous eaters: Chicken Gelatine {Galareta} – perfect for leftover turkey or chicken.

 

4. Beef stew {Zupa Gulaszowa} – once that beef roast cools, no one is eating it again. 

 

5. Sauerkraut Soup {Kapuśniak} – awesome hardy soup made with leftover ham, or ham bone.

 

6. Hunter Stew {Bigos} – throw whatever meat you have left over, some sauerkraut and mushrooms and done.

Be creative, taste and flavor your food with whatever feels is right. Deviating from the recipe is OK. Ask questions, if you want… but don’t be shy. Enjoy!
