Bubble & Squeak Kale & Potato Patties with Cucumber Raita

A traditional English dish, bubble and squeak was created as a way to use up Sunday's mashed potatoes along with just about any other leftover veggies. We put a healthy, Indian-inspired spin on the classic with these potato and kale patties subtly spiced with a blend of ginger and curry powder.

Cranberry Pecan Streusel Muffins

Customize these whole-grain muffins by using your choice of cranberry sauce, but we love the kick from our Grapefruit & Cranberry Sauce on page 55. You’ll want to make a double batch of cranberry sauce this year to make certain you have extra for these treats!

Turkey Skillet Pie with Whole-Grain Buttermilk Biscuits

Trust us, this isn’t your grandmother’s turkey pot pie! Our easy version is made from start to finish in the same skillet, making cleanup a breeze – plus, our fluffy biscuits are a nice change-up to the traditional pastry topping. If you have green beans leftover from your holiday meal, you can use them instead of the peas.
