Ykids Ministry of Food – Christmas leftovers

What do you do with your left-over cranberry sauce? Does it stay in your fridge until next Christmas? Does it go in the bin? Or is this a stupid question because it was totally demolished by the family members on Christmas day?

I thought I would share with you a very simple but oh so yummy lunch recipe that I created
yesterday? I’m a big fan of creating new recipe’s using leftovers and this one is a game changer. You may have tried a bacon, brie and cranberry panini at your local café, but this is using one of my favourite cheeses – the (always in my fridge) faithful goats’ cheese!

So, the ingredients – grab yourself a plain bagel, 2 rashers of bacon, a handful of spinach, some soft goats’ cheese and that sweet delicious left-over cranberry sauce.

And now to the recipe – Throw your bacon in the frying pan, cooking it to how you like it (to crisp or
not to crisp, that is the question when it comes to bacon), slice your bagel in half and pop in your
toaster. When the bread and meat are cooked, its now time to stack.

Spread your soft goats’ cheese on your toasted bagel. Starting with your bottom bagel half, stack
your bacon, spinach and a good dollop of cranberry sauce, and then close it all off with your bagel
top and enjoy. A nice way to start the new year still feeling a tad festive.
