Roast Veg Leftovers

I think some of our most amazing meals come from giving leftovers a second lease of life.

When we had loads of leftover roast veg, stuffing and crispy bacon from our Christmas meal, I made these...

I put the leftovers (roast potatoes, stuffing, bacon, etc) through the blender, but just a bit so it still has texture.  I didn't bother blending the brussels and leaks as they were already the correct consistency.   Put all the soft veg into a bowl, added an egg, fresh chopped shallots and garlic.  Combine together with hands and form into round balls.

Roast in the oven (about 180 degrees or gas mark 6) for about 20 mins and hey presto, some great picnic food or a great veg accompaniment to a meal.

This works with almost any roast veg and works with fresh veg in summer months when you have a glut in the garden.

You can turn left overs into something really delicious.
